To Stream: French and American Classics (A Musical Homage to Madewell et Sézane)


Our second collaboration with cult French favorite Sézane® just arrived this week, but we’ve already got our most-loved pieces on repeat. Also on repeat? Our playlist that captures the vibes of the two cities that inspired the collection: New York and Paris.

It could be the soundtrack to a dreamy montage of bicontinental living: grabbing cheese from the Marché Bastille (Claudine Longet), strolling through the West Village (Carole King), reading on a blanket in the Tuileries Garden (Françoise Hardy) and staying up past your bedtime (Nancy Sinatra). It’s enough to make you want to buy a plane ticket—or just crank up the tunes and pretend, for an hour or so, that you’re the best-dressed bilingual woman around.
