IN DEPTH: Sessun S/S 2012

One of our favorite women's lines--but not well-known in the U.S.--is Sessun. Designed by Emma Francois in Marseille, France, Sessun offers feminine streetwear with a subtle vintage sensibility. Each season the line masterfully combines textiles, patterns and embellishments. This spring, Sessun nods to the 40s with nipped-in waists and rounded collars in a sunny, sorbet palette of pinks, yellows, and coral reds. Silks are hammered, knits are textural, cottons are embossed with jacquard patterns. Francois and her team keep it classic, though, carefully balancing their sweet vintage references with a contemporary French aesthetic.

Take a look at our new Sessun S/S 2012 arrivals here.
