Grass roots fashion design from Marseille…We love the dreamy, poetic, eclectic world of Marseille-based fashion label Sessùn, which was founded 15 years ago by Emma Francois, a former anthropology student with a passion for travel (at least two things we have in common). Her collections are often feminine and cute without being girly, it’s simple yet quietly sophisticated, it’s not too crazy expensive either. The good news is with shops and corners opening everywhere including Berlin and London you don’t need to travel to Marseille to find Sessùn, but if you do make sure you stage a pilgrimage to the original Sessùn Boutique rue Sainte Anne. If you ‘like’ what you see, you may also want to check out Emma’s music recommendations on her excellent blog.

Other ‘Made in Marseille’ success story include American Vintage, whose best known for its classic tees – and street wear label Kulte.
