Sézane is an online-based French fashion retailer, selling everything from sharp jackets to leather boots. We’ve loved Sézane’s style for some time, although it was a visit to their New York brick-and-mortar shop that really got us hooked.
We first visited the NoLita location back in September for an event with Nichole Robertson, author of New York in Color and Paris in Color, Lindsey Tramuta, author of The New Paris, and Will Taylor, owner of the Bright Bazaar blog. What a lineup! We loved the conversation, which was focused on the relationship between Paris and New York.
Sézane is part cafe and part boutique
At Sézane, the shopping experience includes part browsing racks of carefully edited clothing and accessories and part enjoying the shop’s aesthetic. Plus, in traditional French style, there are charming cafe chairs and tables and coffee from Maman. You can see more about Maman here
It’s all in the details
There are countless details at L’Appartement that make us love Sézane even more. From the tile in the doorway to the coffee cups decorated with the words “Bonjour New York,” all these little things come together to make the shop feel authentically French.
Maman is one of our favorite coffee shops in New York. It has a wonderful French influence, so it’s only fitting that it’s served at Sézane. The to-go cups perfectly depict the unique partnership between Paris in New York that the store embodies.
Have you visited Sézane yet? We have always loved both Paris and New York, and despite the sense of competition that seems to exist between the two cities, Sézane embodies the best of both, right here in the US.
