Hands up if you’re just a leetle bit bored of hearing about how incroyablement chic French women are? Ah oui, les Parisiennes are oh-so-elegant, no matter what, non? In actual fact, you may have visited Paris – you may have even lived there – and found that this La Femme Francaise Fashion thing is all a bit of a myth… Well chic Parisian label Sézane may just have reinvigorated our belief in French fashion.
Founded in 2013 by stylist Morgane Sezalory, the 100%-online brand has just launched UK shipping – and we think you’re going to love Sézane’s brand of effortless dress-up-dress-down elegance. The label focuses on the perfect cut and beautiful quality fabrics, with the online-only policy meaning that orders ship directly from workshop to customer, avoiding expensive retail overheads. Prices are a little more expensive that typical high street brands, expect to pay £35 for a cotton t-shirt and around £90 for a lace dress.
Collections are updated regularly and it’s all got a bit of a certain – wait for it – je ne sais quoi to it… Luxe basics, classics with a twist; these are pieces to wear with an insouciant attitude, a slick of red lipstick and hair just a little undone. Fantastically-tailored leather shorts mix perfectly with fine knits and silk blouses, plus a signature selection of shoes, bags and elegant accessories. Right now, we’ve got our eyes on the beautiful wool coats, cosy parkas and flirty dresses. New wardrobe – bonjour!
