Sézane’s new store concept spotlights secondhand

French fashion brand Sézane has opened a new store concept in Paris’ 17th arrondissement that includes secondhand and upcycled finds.

Located in the trendy Batignolles neighbourhood, the 400m2 store, called Le Libre Service, is inspired by the Grand Bazars of old Paris, where vintage rubs shoulders with new.

The vintage component includes Levis that can be tailored in-store, belts, printed t-shirts and scarves. The boutique also features upcycling collaborations with Hôtel Vêtements and Les Récupérables.

Le Libre Service, which also stocks Sézane’s current collection and curated lifestyle finds, is at 63 boulevard des Batignolles.

Sézane also has a solidarity boutique in the French capital, selling archive pieces and secondhand items donated by consumers.

At 3 rue Saint Fiacre, 75002, the shop is open from the 21st to 31st of each month. Expect to pay around 70 for a dress, 150 for a coat and 30 for a t-shirt. All proceeds go to the Demain philanthropic program that supports actions in favour of access to education, culture and equal opportunities for children around the world.
