At the Studio, we love Madewell!
And we really love their collabs, like the one launching today — the company’s second one with French brand Sézane. It’s framed around the dual Paris-NYC lifestyle, which we think is kind of perfect — especially with these striped tees.e
The designer Morgane Sézalory was in NY the other day and I got to meet her and ask her a little bit about her love for each city, and how she adapts to each one:
I declare my love for NY… By coming to see it regularly, at least annually! Just one taxi ride, and I feel the energy of this city. I love to walk around and discover the new hotels, restaurants, exhibits.
I declare my love for Paris… By living here for 25 years now, and I’ll never be able to leave it. A city where my dreams come true.
At night in Paris… jeans + heels + feminine blouse + not much makeup.
At night in NY… it seems more dressed up — women here wear dresses, makeup, heels.
(I would never dress up in Paris like girls do in NY at night; it’s all about effortless chic!)
A typical lunch with girlfriends can be described as…
NY: Easy brunch (my favorites are ABC Kitchen, The Wythe Hotel, Nobu, Rosemary’s or Locanda Verde)
Paris: A little bistro (my favorites are L’Office, Pan, East or Guilo Guilo)
Now to decide which city to declare your love to first? Maybe it depends on which continent you happen to be on? Or your mood that day? Or maybe whether blue or red is best suited to your outfit?
Can there ever be a favorite, really?!!
