StoryThe story of Collégien is that of a family, a village and a priceless know-how.
The Guilles have run their hosiery factory for over a century, at Briatexte, a small village in the southwest of France. In 1947, Robert created the Collégien brand and, with his brother Alain, invented the injection of a soft rubber sole in a sock: the slipper-sock was born! In 2007, Olivier Guille, today’s CEO and the founder’s great-grandchild, restyled this iconic item and made it a worldwide beloved accessory, thank to its design, vivid colours and comfort.
The BrandCollégien is a French brand established in 1947.
Collégien offers men’s, women’s and kids’ socks, slipper-socks, tights and knitted accessories. Each collection is the result of a process taking into account current trends. From collection designing to customer delivery, all products are totally made in France. Collégien has been able to value its know-how to create the ultimate socks and tights, made of the finest long-staple Egyptian cotton, cashmere, silk and extra-soft lurex.
