Marseille-based designer Emma François travelled extensively in South America, studying traditional weavers and embroiderers. Inspired by what she had seen, she started the Sessùn label in 1995, combining these fabrics with contemporary shapes and her love of classic French design. Contrasting simple cuts with couture details, oversized masculine and delicate feminine shapes, raw and refined materials, the clothes have a timeless vintage look, drawing inspiration from the 40s through to the 70s, mixed with a relaxed elegance for a smart casual look with a cool attitude.
