Sézane and Sea New York toast to their second collab
They’re back for round two! After the success of their first partnership, French brand Sézane and Manhattan’s own bohemian mainstay Sea New York have teamed up again for a 40-piece collection which launches on February 5. To introduce the limited-edition capsule to editors and tastemakers, Sea founders Sean Monahan and Monica Paolini brought together a group for an intimate cocktail moment at the Sézane store in Nolita. The poetry-inspired line includes sustainable ready to wear and accessories for women and children, all with an air of Sea’s romanticism fused with Sézane classic Parisian edge. Among those in attendance were Lameka Fox, Ruby Aldridge, Carlotta Kohl, Dee Poku, Charlott Cordes, Brianna Lance, Renata Zandonadi, and more, while DJ Mei Kwok spun a mix of Parisian and NYC faves. Seeing as the last collection sold out in under 24 hours, you’d better mark those cals for 2.5 now!
