Our mission? To design high-quality clothes and accessories that you can wear with elegance, for a long time, without ruining yourself. We focus our energy on the quality of our materials and fabrics and the care with which our collections are made. In this context, we prefer short distribution channels and the traditional savoir-faire of ateliers and pay particular attention to our social and environmental responsibility.
The Nines - Atelier of Elegance
"The Nines" comes from the expression "to be dressed up to the nines", which basically means "to be dressed up to perfection". This elegance is reflected both in our designs, which pay tribute to the traditional savoir-faire of family owned ateliers, and in our high-quality materials. The latter come from renowned manufacturers who themselves work with many of the big names in haute couture. Elegance is not a luxury - with this conviction and ambition, we have established short distribution channels since the beginning of our brand's creation, allowing us to offer our collections at reasonable prices!
Designed in France - Made in Europe
Our products do not travel around the world before they arrive in your wardrobe: designed in Paris, we entrust the production of our collections to our partner ateliers located in Italy, Portugal, the Czech Republic and Romania. This direct distribution channel, which respects human and environment, is designed with a meticulous precision to offer you outstanding quality at reasonable prices.
Meet our team
The Nines is run by a team of twelve people spread over the French cities of Paris and Bordeaux. Our design studio and our three boutiques are located in the fashion metropolis of Paris, where we are thrilled to share ideas and stylistic recommendations with you. From our warehouse in Bordeaux, we ship your orders all over the world, take care of customer requests and engrave your personalised cufflinks. In the upper photo, Erwan and Renaud, founders of The Nines, strike a pose and in the lower photo, the Bordeaux team hands over clothes and accessories to La Cravate Solidaire, a charity and partner that supports professional reintegration.
From our first steps... to a new beginning
When our adventure in menswear began 10 years ago, we additionally offered accessories from other well-known brands. At that time, the fashion industry was designed for a permanently increasing purchase of goods and the associated sales. Unfortunately, to sell these large stocks in record time, products repeatedly had to be offered at reduced prices. We quickly realized this model was not justifiable from an ecological and social point of view and concentrated on designing our own collections. Today, from our humble position, we want to contribute to changing the classic distribution system of the textile industry by giving new meaning to the price and quality of clothing and accessories.
What about the planet?
It is a fact that the textile industry has a negative impact on the environment. We want to reduce this effect and are therefore committed to producing articles with a focus on sustainability in nearby ateliers. In this manner, we are increasingly opting for materials and processes that respect the environment, like vegetable leather tanning. Our boutiques and offices are powered by green energy, our packaging is made of sustainable forestry (FSC) cartons and the plastic - of which we are constantly reducing our usage - is recycled. Finally, the few remaining items from past collections are donated to charities!
