Robin Chrétien, a fashion icon, was born in Grenoble, France, immersed in a creative environment that shaped his destiny.

His journey led him to Los Angeles in 1996, where he quickly conquered the denim industry as a designer for renowned brands such as Blue Cult and Hudson before leaving his own mark.
But beyond the professional milestones, it is Chrétien’s unique soul that illuminates his exceptional trajectory. Inspired by Native American history, motorcycle culture, and the golden age of cinema, he fused his passions to create Robin’s Jean in 2005.
