MARIE SIXTINE was founded in 2010 by Jinmeng Ren, a young self-taught entrepreneur. Wool attracts his attention because everyone has it, it is a familiar material. A first choice that leads the brand to a real expertise in knitwear.
Her name is a first name, it inspires finesse and delicacy. MARIE SIXTINE creates the wardrobe of a woman with a strong and captivating personality. With its natural materials, functional cuts, colors and prints, MARIE SIXTINE offers her a place of comfort and lightness.
In Paris, in a bright and zen work environment, the stylists imagine the next collections, giving free rein to their fresh imagination. 5 rue de Charonne is a special address that houses a boutique, the headquarters, the showroom, the design studio and an exceptional place: the ideal apartment for the MARIE SIXTINE woman.
This apartment was specially designed by the architectural duo Sandrine Place and Baptiste Legué to embody the MARIE SIXTINE universe: its codes, values and inspirations. Between the chic of a suite and the comfort of a "home", the apartment breaks the codes: a harmony of pastel tones, contemporary furniture and the intervention of whimsical pieces such as exuberant lights, a large romantic mural, an antique bathtub... All of this is accessorized with a procession of individual pieces, found on the market, which evoke as many encounters and travels. A clever interweaving of styles, origins, a wealth of strong and delicate pieces to dream their personal and secret history. It is a confidential space, a cocoon, a bubble conducive to creativity, conviviality and exchange, open to all kinds of guests and events.
The DNA and the heart of the brand's activity is knitwear. The brand offers a complete wardrobe, including warp and weft and cut and sew. MARIE SIXTINE develops its know-how through a unique creation of materials. Like a chef, developing his recipes from a choice of ingredients and a precise dosage, the brand creates a personal and original product. For example, the mix of viscose, merino wool and cashmere gives life to a lighter composition. To find the ideal recipe, MARIE SIXTINE carries out numerous tests, participating in the development of its materials with the same spinning partners as at the beginning.
Merino wool, kid mohair, cashmere, angora, viscose, modal, cotton, silk... The yarns are selected for their exceptional qualities. They bring warmth or freshness, softness and comfort. As soon as you try them on, a story is told between the fabric and your skin. New: MARIE SIXTINE expands its offer with the entry of organic cotton in its collections!
The collections are created from desires and inspirations marked by sensitivity and delicacy, leaving room for the imagination. A team of stylists reinterprets fashion by mixing allure and comfort with a touch of originality. MARIE SIXTINE invents new basics and creates a line of timeless pieces that complete a look and simplify life. These "Essentials" last through the seasons and are renewed by color and details. The collections also feature strong pieces that are in tune with the times through contemporary cuts. They remain singular and faithful to the values of the brand, always blowing a refrain, a poetry.
The signature of its collections: unique colors and original prints, designed specifically for the brand. Each garment is meticulously designed down to the smallest detail, revealing itself as a discreet confidence, a playful wink: a pearly button, an embroidery on a collar, a print that is revealed on the reverse side of a sleeve... Like so many private and charming surprises.
