Isaac Reina (°1968) studied architecture before switching to fashion. In 1991, after finishing his degree, he started working on the men’s collection for Antonio Miro in Barcelona. In the late nineties, his curiosity and quest for quality took him to Paris. Isaac joined Hermès in 1998 at the men’s ready-to-wear studio directed by Véronique Nichanian, where he worked across the entire range of the male wardrobe, apart from the accessories collection.
In 2006, Isaac Reina launched his eponymous line of leather accessories. With distance from a luxury iconography, Isaac Reina is focusing on the simplicity in a noble sense of the material. Without pretention, he is keeping in its way of working an authenticity and crafts quality trough details. His projects are looking for simple beauty, natural and essential.
The first Isaac Reina store opened in 2006, at 38 Rue de Sévigné in the Parisian district of Le Marais. In 2015, it moved to new premises in the same area, at 12 Rue de Thorigny, near the Picasso Museum. A few years later, in 2018, a second Parisian store designed by Bernard Dubois opened at 20 Rue Bonaparte, on the Rive Gauche.
Isaac Reina worked in collaboration with Maison Martin Margiela, Balenciaga, Calvin Klein, and since 2019 with Ami Paris and Paco Rabanne. He is currently accessories tutor at the Ecole de la Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne (Institut Français de la Mode).
