LEE x H&M: a collaboration for the next generation of more sustainable jeans

H&M is proud to announce its collaboration with the legendary American jeans brand LEE which aims to promote the next generation of more sustainable denim. It's a holistic collaboration with new advancements at every stage of design and production, from the very first 100% recycled cotton jeans to the back patches made without leather and from cork and jacron paper. For the first time, H&M will also share on lifecycle analysis (LCA) data for each denim garment, showing its impact on water, C02 emitted and energy consumed, of the raw materials to its end use. This transparency goes hand in hand with the positivity of fashion, characterized by oversized and cocooning silhouettes as well as workwear shapes inspired by Lee's precious heritage. 

Lee x H&M features collections for women, men and children, and will be available on from January 28.

“We loved working with Lee to drive change. 

A shift to more sustainable, circular denim clothing. 

We considered every detail and challenged each other in a positive way. 

Working with iconic designs from Lee and giving them a bit of our flavor,

to the delight of H&M jeans fans, has been an incredible experience, ”

says Jon Loman, designer at H&M.

“Lee is proud to partner with H&M to continue our efforts to make better denim.

 Our brand was founded over 130 years ago for innovation, 

and today we are happy to partner with H&M 

to advance denim towards a more sustainable future, ”

said Chris Waldeck, executive vice president of global brand Lee®.

Lee x H&M is an ambitious collaboration that places sustainability at the center of its achievement. Both brands have taken a holistic approach, looking at every step of denim production. The fabric is central, such as the one used to create the first H&M jeans in 100% recycled cotton, produced with 80% post-industrial waste and 20% post-consumer waste. There is also cotton-free denim, made from renewable synthetic fibers, as well as water-saving dyes and low-impact wash treatments, which are verified for water, chemical and energy consumption by a third party company.

In the collection for women, the wide, loose jeans have a retro '90s look, and Lee's classic Rider jacket is revisited in an oversized and enveloping style. Denim corsets add a feminine touch, while overalls and overshirts are reminiscent of functional workwear. Texloop ™ RCOT ™ recycled cotton jersey pieces complete the Lee x H&M look. 

On the men's side, workwear jackets are essential pieces of the wardrobe with a real authenticity of Lee's design. The five pocket casual jeans are made from 100% recycled cotton, while the carpenter jeans are made with dyes to reduce water consumption and are sewn with 100% Tencel ™ Lyocell cellulosic thread. Workwear overalls, bucket hats and denim canvas bags, as well as heavy jersey pieces complete this more durable collection.

Nuxe new Super Serum [10]: The universal age-defying concentrate

Nuxe presents the new Super Serum [10] which incorporates, for the 1 st time in one of its care products the benefits of a cutting-edge green technology that eliminates the need for silicone for a 100% natural microfluidic encapsulation of fractionated botanical oils. This innovation underpins its unique clean formula containing Natural Hyaluronic Acid infused with thousands of botanical golden spheres. 

The fractionated botanical oils are naturally encapsulated in the form of thousands of micro-spheres, delicately infused one by one in a serum base with Natural Hyaluronic Acid, in the form of botanical golden pearls. Isolated and protected until application, these 2 phases help to preserve the full power of the ingredients and deliver them more efficiently, penetrating the skin’s surface layers. They come together on contact with the skin to create a unique sensorial experience: the refreshing sensation of the serum texture contrasts with the silky feel of the micro-spheres of botanical oils that melt divinely over the skin. Super Serum [10] has a vegan formula containing 95% powerful ingredients of natural origins all selected with great care. In other words, the ‘holy grail’ of clean anti-ageing skincare, with no other components.

Super Serum [10] stimulates youth mechanisms for  skin that functions as if it were 10 years younger. Its effectiveness has been evaluated by a cutting-edge technology using 3D micro-dermises. These innovative models are made up of over 10,000 cells to create a very realistic reproduction of the skin’s functioning. 

I have been testing the new Super Serum [10 ] using it in the morning and evening on my face, neck and décolleté. I have really seen an improvement of my skin. From the first applications skin looks transformed definetely looking more plumped, smoother and more luminous. After a few weeks of use I noticed also its anti-ageing efficacy as it reduced wrinkles and fine lines as well as dark spots and my skin looks firmer. Complexion is more even and smoother. Super Serum [10 ] for me has really proven its anti-aging efficacy and  has already become one of my must-have product! It is a true to pleasure to use thanks to the perfect synergy of its 2 gel textures and microspheres and its delicate scent with vegetal notes.

An exceptional natural concentrate offering ultimate performance and pleasure to the power of 10 for all women, of any age: skin behaves as if it were 10 years younger.

Sisley presents its new feminine fragrance IZIA La Nuit

Sisley Paris present its new feminine fragrance Izia La Nuit. An ode to the night, Izia La Nuit is a tribute to a mysterious and unique rose found in Isabelle d'Ornano's garden that blooms once a year.
Izia La Nuit is inspired by the original Izia which was designed and created by Isabelle d'Ornano in 2017 gives you a renewed intensity combined with the warmth of vanilla and amber blended with the sensuality of the rose. This modern perfume brings you fruity and colorful notes with deep woody and leathery facets. So a  few years on, the Izia rose unleashes new sensuality, continuing the emotional experience with an addictive fragrance of floral, woody and chypre notes. A deep, opulent and nocturnal fragrance. Composed of the finest essences, Izia La Nuit recreates the excitement, wonder, blossoming, and serenity experienced throughout a love journey.

"Izia La Nuit is more than a fragrance, a place or a time;
 it is a journey, an experience, a discovery."


Sisley has revisited the bottle initially designed for Izia in 2017 by Polish sculptor Bronislaw Krzysztof. The elegant, precious glass is cloaked in a deep and mysterious glossy black lacquer, the colour of the night, contrasting with the delicate golden film that reflects the luminous fragrance. “Izia La Nuit”, is handwritten by Isabelle d’Ornano and incorporates the word Izia – the diminutive form of Isabelle in Polish – giving the fragrance an incredibly personal and intimate touch. The name is etched into gold leaf and set against a midnight blue box scattered with stars.
The inside of the packaging reveals the surrealist collages of English artist Quentin Jones, who interprets the idea of the gaze with a patchwork of eyes that cover the box and intermingle with golden dots.

The Izia La Nuit film stars Sonia Vasena, niece of Isabelle d’Ornano. She is the perfect embodiment of the Sisley woman as she interprets the different facets of the fragrance through an allegory of love. Just as love is an emotional experience that runs a set course, an unfamiliar fragrance can also trigger a succession of stages: excitement, wonder, blossoming, satisfaction and eternity.

Izia La Nuit Eau de Parfum is available from February 2021 as Edp 30 ml, Edp 50 ml and Edp 100 ml.
