Babba wears Sézane's best-selling Gaspard Cardigan. 

We talk at length about emulating French style, re-creating the looks of our favourite Gallic girls and honing that effortless "joie de vivre" way of dressing that so many of the country's women possess. Handily, there's one brand that can help us achieve all of the above.

Having started life as a vintage clothing brand, Sézane has evolved to become one of the chicest French brands out there. A favourite amongst fashion editors, its array of casual but elevated clothing and accessories has made it easier than ever before to tap into the formerly imitable French aesthetic. From dresses and boots to jewellery and jeans, Sézane has all of your wardrobe bases covered—though, no product category is quite as impressive as its knitwear.

Like Babba, Monikh is a top influencer who regularly wears the French brand's Gaspard knit. 

Often slightly oversize and always made from the highest-quality fabrics, Sézane's knitwear is a beautiful sight to behold. A rainbow of powdery, expensive-looking hues decorates jumpers and cardigans alike. Pretty details such as pearl buttons and aged-brass hardware ensure the pieces look considerably more polished than their price tags suggest.

They might be slightly more expensive than your typical high-street offering, but with never-dating silhouettes that you'll love and wear for seasons to come, we can confirm they're worth spending a little extra on. Clearly, we're not the only ones who think so, as countless influencers have recently been sporting Sézane knitwear.
