LE LIBRE-service, LE nouveau concept DE sézane
The second landmark address of the French success story brand is a must see! This big bazaar inspired concept store offers a fashion experience unlike any other. On two levels, the Sezane boutique highlights the new collection and a selection of vintage and exclusive pieces (some of them created with Les Récupérables). With corners dedicated to shoes, jewellery pieces and a highly deisrable selection of gifts, Le Libre-Service as named by Morgane Sezalory and her team, is so much more than a store, offering enhanced fitting room experience, conciergerie, alterations for their vintage finds, keypad lockers, postal cards sent for free, to name but a few. Relaxing peaceful atmosphere, decorated with taste, giving room to plants and wood furniture. This place offers its community an experience from etail to retail and goes one step further with this new boutique, that embodies very well the concept we have developed for Formex : hybrid, playful and committed. Don’t miss the Secret room !

LOUYETU : FROM ONLINE TO INSTORE
It’s been almost 4 years since Louyetu seduced shopping addicts with its plated gold jewelry. Remember, it all started thanks to online business and social media, then to meet its community, Louyetu opened pop-up stores, accessible by appointement only, in several french cities, retailers corners, and finally a permanent address in Le Marais for clients to be able to enjoy Louyetu in real life. The recipe for Louyetu success ? A strong DNA, trendy collections and from the start a proximity relation with its enthusiasts. To celebrate the company’s anniversary, Louyetu’s founder opened a new permanent address, rue de Volney, close to Opera. What makes this new address so special ? this is not only a boutique but the real home of the louves (the name of Louyetu’s team). This new address makes it possible to dive into Louyetu’s universe : 12, rue de Volney is in the meantime the company’s headquarters, the ateliers and the boutique. All this reunited in the same place, to be close to its community. This is not only a shopping destination but an address for decoration obsessed to stop by, take time in the store and discover other brands as Louyetu hosts classes and events.
