CREATION DIARY

Our Savoir-Faire 


At Sézane we put great value into the savoir-faire of our pieces- knowing who makes our clothes and how. As we believe in complete transparency, we have opened the doors to our ateliers around the world, to share with you the techniques and the skilled craftsmen behind our creations. The destinations of our ateliers are chosen depending on the origin of raw materials, expertise, working conditions and production capacities. We are continually evolving to include more innovative and eco-friendly methods and materials to create our beautiful pieces.

Our Iconic Gaspard 

Welcome to the region of Florence in Italy, where the savoir-faire of our iconic jumper comes to life. The Gaspard tale starts with a thread, chosen for its fine quality and because of its Italian roots, the jumper is knitted and assembled in Italy, just like this, in brothers Erico and Massimo’s atelier.

Our Knitwear 

For five years now, knitwear has been at the heart of Sézane, enhanced each season by Marie Josephine, Nina and their partner ateliers, to ensure that we continue to create exceptional pieces at the fairest prices while constantly raising our ethics and quality requirements. 
Our most iconic and simple designs are created in Europe, such as our Gaspard and Charles jumper. Our more sophisticated pieces, adorned with embroidery, pearls, pompoms or complicated prints are created in China. 
A huge thank you to each one of our ateliers and our team of experts.

Our Leather goods 

The components of our leather goods are born in Italy with the help of our longstanding partners. Such as Sabrina and Paolo who bring our exceptional bags to life. 
The production of each of our models involves hundreds of meticulous stages. The leather is tanned using vegetable-tanning methods in certified tanneries, which respect the environment.

Our Prints 

When our prints are not designed by our Studio, they originate from traditional Italian textile, archive libraries allowing us to give these prints of the past a new life. 
These designs are then woven onto jacquards using traditional methods or printed straight on the fabric of the new Collection.

Our 'green' Jacks

From the very first pair, all of our Jack sneakers have been created by Miguel’s atelier in  Portugal. This season our nude version has become even more eco-friendly.  The leather is tanned using the natural rhubarb extracts.  The soles are made from recycled materials and natural leather. We use a water-based glue, the laces are made from organic cotton and the threads are Oeko-Tex certified.

Vegetable Tanning 

Ana has pioneered vegetable tanning with rhubarb. A process which creates eco-friendly leather. The plant is grown in a field without using any chemical products. The roots are then dried and the best are selected to form a natural recipe which will give the leather its delicate suppleness.
