About Lois Jeans
We are Lois. Established in Spain in 1962, we were the
first European jeans brand to conquer the world. We made a great start in the sixties,
but it wasn’t until the seventies that we truly flourished.
We were worn by
influential fashion icons and musicians and soon we were all over the dance
floor. In contrast to other great jeans brands of that time we focused on a
fashionable and sexy pair of jeans. Soon, young people all over the world
recognized that we were their perfect fit. And although we have been around for
quite some time now, we never grew old. It’s our positive and proud Valencian
spirit that makes us timeless.
Spain is an important part of our heritage as
well as our future. It is where we were born, raised and where today we are
still made with love. Although Spanish blood runs through our veins, the Dutch
have become an important part of who we are today. They have given us a new
lease of life and the unique opportunity to co-create amazing new
culture-blending stories and looks. By working closely together we have been
reinvented and re-introduced.
At Lois we believe in a longer lasting wardrobe
than that the fashion industry offers today. Instead of making our collections
seasonal, we strive to create clothing that is wearable in every climate and
season. By leaving the seasonal ‘label’ behind we stretch the lifecycle of our
collections and suggest that our garments can be worn all year round. If you
haven’t met us yet, you’ll be glad you did now.
