This Affordable French-Girl Brand Has A Cardigan With A 30,000-Person Waiting List


If there’s one thing we’re unapologetically obsessed with, it’s French-girl style. That elusive je ne sais quoi is every bit our style goal. So, it’s no surprise affordable French label Sézane has peaked our interest, most recently because it has a cardigan with a reported 30,000-person waiting list. We kid you not.

The famous mohair-blend sweater, known as the Barry, is part of the brand’s permanent collection of iconic Parisian pieces (meaning restocks happen throughout the season). At $120, it’s not the cheapest, but a wise spend nonetheless as it’s a wardrobe classic available in timeless shades of white, black, nude and gray. To boot, cardigans are totally making a comeback, which may be a leading cause of its current trophy status.

Its popularity could also be attributed to its versatility—it can be worn frontward as expected, backward for a boatneck silhouette or off the shoulder for a bit of sexiness. The V-shape adds intrigue no matter which way you choose. We love it on its own paired with jeans for that unfussy French-girl look, though you may want to layer up for prim occasions.

Damn. We need one. Peruse the various color offerings ahead and jump on that waitlist stat.
