Checking out the new arrivals from Sezane

22

I think this French brand just goes from strength to strength, with flirty, well-priced pieces that are on-trend without being exactly trendy, which I like. And the prices, while not cheap, are decent. I think I’d probably wear this pretty floral shirt with jeans and a blazer.

A spiff jumpsuit with cool snap buttons in a very good blue.

A well-priced and oversized tote for hauling all of your weekend necessities.

I love the blue of this cute cardi, and it comes in a few other colors too.

A slightly clunky clog sandal for summertime clomping about.

Bags like this remind me of Diane Keaton in Annie Hall, and it’s the perfect, not-too-big size.

I dig the desert hues of these sneakers.

A lacy blouse with just the most ever-so-slightly puffy shoulders and a clean band collar.

A denim workwear jacket for wearing with whatever.

    Does anyone know if that Tianna shirt is constructed with a v-placket or they’ve just styled it to look like one-? Because an open V works with my chest but a straight placket doesn’t unless I wear a cami and never button it above the nips.

      “Chat” or email with customer service. I had a question about the jeans and they were very helpful.

    Their clothes are beautiful but their customer service sucks! I returned two items and never got a refund. An email from customer service said basically that “it takes a while” to get a refund, and I never heard back. Grrr…

      That’s strange! I have returned items a few times (I am often disappointed by their synthetic fabrics) and refunds have always been super prompt.

    I love the styling of the last pic of the denim. If I weren’t trying to restrict myself to just 1 of each (and I already have a nice Madewell jean jacket in the same length), I’d snap it up. I’m actually surprised that there’s still a L and XL available there — it seems Sezane often sells out quickly and you have to stalk for more product.

      Adding that I hate and love the styling of their gallery pics. I like how the shots are styled and positioned, but many of them are repetitive and don’t give new info. Also need more pics of the featured product in full profile, full front-on, without the model obscuring it in the way she’s sitting or standing. They could learn more from Madewell or Anthropologie.

    Something about the Sezane vibe will forever make me cringe a bit BUT (a big BUT) the “Slim 7/8″ jean actually fits me (at 5′ 2,” that’s a BIG deal) and now I’m considering the cardigan – that blue looks PERFECT.

    I love everything here — including and especially, surprisingly, the lacey blouse. What a beautiful shape. I’m also wondering how it is that even if you didn’t know the brand was French, you’d know the brand was French just by looking at the models. I can’t figure it out but I’ll never not aspire to it.

      You know it’s french because all the models are beautiful in their own unique ways. Noses aren’t “perfect.” Hair isn’t tortured/styled to death. Teeth look natural. They’re not airbrushed/contured/overly made-up. Not botox’ed to death (not that there’s anything wrong with botox but it’s so overdone here!) Just naturally beautiful. Believe it or not, i always feel my most chic and beautiful when I’m in Paris!

      You also know it’s French because many styles only go up to a size 12, and none beyond a 14.

          Not sure why my reply keeps jumping around. I’m trying to agree with Susanna & Kay!!!

      The model in the last photo — I think I just found my next haircut.

        Ha, I have a Pinterest board of haircut ideas and it’s basically all Sezane models. I do think French women with bangs have got to be lying when they say they never even blow dry their hair, though. As a longtime bangs wearer with pretty straight hair, I don’t even see how this is possible.

        I love that style hair. Very Meg Ryan-ish (and I mean that in a good way!).

    I love their jewelry, I have a couple of the pieces and I layer them just like in the images. Great brand.

      Agree! I studied their jewelry choices more than the clothes in some cases, although love that gorgeous blue cardi.

      Great to know, thanks! Often you can order jewelry online and it looks very different in person.

    Just had a moment to finally get to listen to the Jo Piazza EIF podcast. Brilliant! Such a fun, thought-provoking listen. Thank you! (and I had to immediately follow her on Instagram)

    The tote bag would fit me! But seriously, Sezane, get with the program. Even French girls aren’t that slim or petite anymore. There’s a whole bunch of people out there with lots of money to spend who wear over a size 14. It’s no wonder that everything they offer is sold out in 10, 12, and 14.
