Each month, the Socksial Club will send an original and exclusive pair of socks, conceived and designed by designers from different areas of interest.
Socksial Club is a new private club for fans of the (mainly) organic cotton unisex socks produced in ultra-limited quantities by the last family-owned French hosiery company, Perrin Manufacturing.
Socksial Club is available on a monthly subscription basis. Socksial Club socks are also available individually.
Socksial Club will unveil month after month, each curator as well as the design of his or her creation.
“I have always loved cotton socks whether they are plain, fancy, sober or colorful. I often look at socks when I meet someone and I like what they reveal.” Mathieu Fonsny, founder of the Socksial Club.
