Madewell has just debuted its second limited edition collaboration with French brand Sézane.
The collaboration is meant to embody a New York-meets-Paris spirit. Paris is embodied in silk blouses, striped dresses and tops, and touches of lace. New York shows itself in go-everywhere tote bags and fun graphics.
The collaboration is also offering two footwear styles. The ‘Ulysses’ lace-up sandal comes in a warm sand-colored hue and a mixed media pair made with stamped leather, soft suede, and leopard-print calf hair. The sandals retail for $168. Low-profile slip-on leather sneakers are also available and are offered in textured navy leather, an easy choice for that tough-to-navigate transition from summer to fall.
A handful of celebrities have already been spotted in the line’s signature shirt styles. The ‘Paris Mon Amour’ and ‘New York My Love’ shirts have been seen on the likes of Lily Collins, Abigail Spencer, and Krysten Ritter. Fashion industry insiders such as Jenna Lyons of J.Crew – Madewell’s parent company – also turned out to fête the release last night at Gramercy Terrace in New York City.
The 18 piece collection is available in Madewell stores and online, as well as on Sézane’s website. Prices range from $58 to $238.
