Slim-fit lycra-cotton black trousers
Cotton pants have a relaxed, slimleg cut that makes them effortless to wear. Slim cut pants have stood the test of time, and like a little black dress, the classic style is one we return to again and again.
While tight-fitting pants are decidedly not a new concept, their origins stretch farther back than you might realize. All the way back to the 17th century, to be exact. Men’s breeches, the old aristocratic grandfather of the skinny jean, were very tight and very popular among French royalty. They fell out of favor for a time, but resurfaced again in the first half of the 1800’s : a mark of rebellion during the French Revolution.
Slim jeans had golden ages in the 1950’s and the 1960's. The style became synonymous with rock n’ roll and the “bad boy” culture that came with it. The slim jean was the “it” pant for the whole decade, until the 1970’s when they were swapped out for bell-bottoms.
The early 2000’s saw boot cut jeans of the late 90’s being pushed to the side byanother skinny jean counterculture movement. Incidentally, we seem to be doing a full cycle of the trend- the skinny styles that were popular in the 50’s and 60’s are the cuts many designers have recently been inspired by.
These pants are smartly tailored from cotton. Mirror the runway styling by teaming yours with loafers.
The Misericordia team is composed by women and men from 19 to 55 years old, supportive and passionate, who works together under the impulse of Aurelyen, our designer.
Our skilled workers assume all the steps of making garments. This global mastering of the process allows us to transmit, through our creations, some authentic values and human emotions: joy, fear, courage, passion…
Thanks to our artisanal organization, typical from the haute couture productions, Misericordia employees develop a special know-how. No mass production, no sweatshop, every garment is designed from A to Z by one or a pair of sewer.
We master the use of the machines we have and we can then unleash our creativity and see the concrete result of our combined efforts. It is what makes every piece of our collection unique.
People are at the very heart of the process. Misericordia try to value and allow every person inside the manufacturing stage to learn through his work, to find a personal learning and confidence dynamic. The purpose here is to have every employee involve and make him autonomous but above all actor, creator and proud of his own work.
Offering optimal working conditions to our team and respect the labor law is fundamental to us. It is why our employees work 45 hour per week spread over 5 days and perceive 15 months of salaries. They also all have a social insurance and paid holidays.
Misericordia is a project with a global vision and a local action.
