It’s no secret that I’ve long been a fan of Sézane, the Paris-based fashion and accessories brand that releases new collections monthly, which are only sold online (I’ve waxed poetic about it here and here). Just this month, Sézane has partnered with Madewell to release a capsule collection, making Sézane goodies available in U.S. stores for the first time ever!
There are a couple items that were previously only available through the Sézane site, which have been updated slightly for the Madewell collection (for example, this adorable bow blouse was previously done in a long sleeve version). The famed La Superbe sweater also makes an appearance at Madewell, this time rendered in a très Américain athletic grey (FYI though, this goes in and out ‘sold out’ status online, so if you’re lusting after this sweatshirt, you might wanna check your local stores). Other faves from the collection? I really love this pretty silk blouse (the neckline is simple, but subtly sexy) and this black lace dress — Sézane always carries the most beautiful lace pieces, so I’m hoping the material used in this piece is no exception!
The partnership is a great chance to check out the brand, if you haven’t wanted to order anything from Sézane online before. I’ve actually had a couple people in the past ask me about Sézane’s sizing and shipping. And with good reason too: while I’ve ordered several leather goods from Sézane, I’ve only ordered one blouse, and it’s just the tiniest bit too snug…but I found out the hard way that returning it to France can actually cost more than the actual blouse!
I’ve followed Sézane since the days when it was called ‘Les Composantes’ (if anyone remembers it under that name!), and it’s neat to see this small business growing! You can check out the full Sézane et Madewell collection here, and of course, see what’s new on the Sézane website over here (the next autumn collection launches this Sunday, and many of their classic pieces — like the Nola and Hope bags — are always available in Les Essentials). Sézane founder Morgane Sézalory also did a great little interview with Madewell head designer Somsack Sikhounmuong over here. Enjoy!
