The idea behind Sézane is simple: create high-quality, perfectly-cut pieces that can be worn forever.
Above all, they firmly believe that the pieces we buy today should become the vintage of tomorrow. To achieve this ideal, Sézane creates timeless pieces that will outlive fleeting trends and suit almost every season, made from eco-friendly and innovative materials by people Sézane respects.
Funnily enough, the story of Sézane begins with a forgotten suitcase and a love of vintage. Upon discovering an abandoned collection of vintage clothing, Morgane Sézalory began making slight adjustments to the pieces and selling her finds online under the name ‘Les Composantes’. Her monthly drops, or rendez-vous, became an anticipated event in France. By 2013, Morgane realized she had found her calling: she began supplementing her vintage pieces with her own designs & the brand Sézane was born.
“Sézane is first and foremost a story of life; a life that takes shape, develops and renews... a story of women and men for whom life revolves around meaning: my story, your story and the story of everyone who contributes to it. To keep raising the bar and write a never-ending story with you – how else?” - Morgane Sézalory
Sézane fabric of values
Not many brands can say their humble beginnings were sprung out of circular endeavours, and such commitments are woven into the Sézane fabric of values. The label’s beautiful creations with a Parisian touch are made to stand the test of time, using high-quality, eco-friendly and innovative materials.
In 2021, they also achieved B Corp certification, codifying their status as a visionary brand that follows a production model which respects the planet and its people. From the choice of production methods, raw materials and working conditions, to their environmental footprint and engagement in the community, B-Corp is the stringent, independent validation of what Sézane stands for: its essence.
On top of that, ¾ of the materials in the current collections are eco-friendly. Plus, their pieces are certified by 5 of the industry's most reliable certifications: GOTS, Oeko-Tex, FSC, RWS and RMS - way above the industry standards.
Putting actions before words: DEMAIN
Guided by the desire to put actions before words, Sézane has also created their philanthropic program DEMAIN - which means tomorrow in French. Always on the 21st of every month, Sézane donates 10% of sales and 100% of the proceeds from dedicated solidarity pieces in their collection to this program or other non-profit partners, such as Day for Change in the Netherlands. Since 2018, Sézane has also raised over 4.5 million euros to support access to education and equal opportunities for children worldwide.
Progress over perfection
While we fully acknowledge there are still several steps that Sézane as a fashion brand needs to take to become a truly sustainable fashion label, we decided to extend our Palanta collection with their pieces because of the impeccable quality and longevity of these unique garments - while propelling Sézane to become more sustainable by renting as well!
