Gustavo Lins studied to be an architect in his native Brazil. He started his career as a freelance pattern-maker and worked for several Paris-based fashion Houses including Jean Paul Gaultier, Kenzo, Louis Vuitton.
He founded his own ready-to-wear brand GUSTAVOLINS in 2003. Since 2011, he has been a permanent member of the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture under the name ATELIER GUSTAVOLINS.
Over the seasons, Gustavo Lins shapes his philosophy through many codes: the kimonos and draped garments, the jackets sleeves have sabre seams, torsions and spirals are inspired by the musculature of the human body. The generous volumes of all these garments were conceived keeping in mind comfort.
Gustavo Lins carefully selects the fabrics from traditional Houses in France and Italy to create this smooth and sensual universe : cashmeres, wools, cotton and silk canvas.The Gustavolins vestiaire is addressed to a modern and urban public. Within a same collection, he can switch from highly architectural to extremely fluid models.
