What do get get when you combine the simplistic, quality genius that is Madewell with an understated yet incredibly chic French brand? Well, for me, what you're left with is a "Why would I buy groceries when I can have a cool sweatshirt instead?" situation, but sometimes sacrifices are necessary. In general, though, the Madewell x Sézane collaboration is filled with booties, graphic sweatshirts, and all kinds of wonderful — and everyone should be pretty excited about it.
In a fashion world that is almost always filled with a steady stream of designer collaborations that consist of an affordable, "every girl" brand working with a high-end designer, the Madewell x Sézane collection is bringing something a little different to the table. Even though Madewell is a well-known American brand revered for their denim and overall craftsmanship, Sézane isn't a household designer name stateside. This makes sense, as the French brand has never been available for purchase in the US. Well, up until now, that is.
The Madewell x Sézane collection is filled with easy, stylish pieces that can be worked into any girl's existing wardrobe, while still adding a little bit of French flare to an overall look. The truly wonderful and unique thing about the collaboration is that the melding of brands is effortless; the best qualities of each brand work together to create something that fits into not only Madewell's aesthetic, but the closet of every girl who enjoys nice clothing.
