French girls do it better

Remember last year when I wrote about the French clothing and accessories company Les Composantes? The founder and creative mind behind the company, which previously focused primarily on found and vintage goods, has re-fashioned and re-imagined it as Sèzane, a collection of seasonally released items available online. The items are all first come, first serve — once they’re gone, they’re gone!

I love founder Morgane Sèzalory’s approach to refined, chic-yet-unique style, and am digging  her interpretation of classic pieces like this jacket. The entire line is the kind of thing you can imagine the coolest girls in Paris wearing over and over again. Here’s more of the collection:

So, I might’ve fallen in love with this navy and black Hope purse. And it might already be on its way to me… This will sound crazy, but I actually don’t own a single shoulder bag like this (I’ve always been more of a tote or clutch girl!), so I’m excited to mix this into my wardrobe.

How great are these booties? So classic and elegant, but they feel a little different than anything else I’ve seen out there!

      Hi Maddy! Sadly, I don’t think they do yet — it’s such a new start up, I’m not sure that they’re quite there yet. One day hopefully!

    I’m french and I’m a big fan of Morgane Sézalory!
    And yes, when you miss an item the only thing you have to do is to cry because when it’s gone it’s gone unfortunately …!
    I say that because I already missed a stunning pair of shoes :(

    Ooo, great find! I love the little pointy heel on the booties. The French women really do basics brilliantly.

    I have been looking at the Hope bag for the past few days. I’m dying to purchase but can’t make up my mind. Do you have any feedback on the bag? Is it sturdy? What type of lining does it have and any inside pockets? When viewing the website in English there is no description of the bag unfortunately.

      I’m OBSESSED with the bag. It is so lightweight — more so than any other bag I own. I love how easy and casual it is, but with the contrast python (or the studs, too), it’s a bit edgy, so it can be dressed up as well. The bottom of the bags have little tiny pegs on it so the suede doesn’t sit on the surface. There’s on interior zip pocket, and the bag comes with a second (longer, thicker) strap you can attach as well. I recommend for sure!

        Reading your answer I was so excited that I went right to the website to order and the honey color bag is out of stock! I then tried to purchase the navy stud bag but my payment would not go through using my credit card. I wonder if maybe they do not take credit card for overseas payments or maybe it’s a limitation of my credit card. I sent them an email to see if they will get more honey colored bags. Oh I hope I did not wait too long!!

          Ok I had the wrong security code. So I bought the navy b/c I was afraid if I waited any longer that one would be gone as well. I hope I love it. Never had a navy bag before but have always admired them.

    I have one of her bags from when she was “Les Composantes” but ever since then they sell out way too fast! They are extremely well made!
