Special Collaboration Collection
Lee jeans teamed-up with H&M for the next generation of more sustainable denim. For this special collaboration collection, they made their first 100% recycled cotton jeans (made from 80% post-industrial waste and 20% post-consumer waste), a non-cotton denim jacket (made from 50% Tencel™ Lyocell and 50% Lenzing™ Ecovero™ Viscose), and used non-leather backpatches made from FSC certified cork and Jacron paper. A vibrating collaboration within the industry.
The Inspiration Of The Collection
The Lee X H&M collection is inspired by the 1990s. For the collection, they used some iconic pieces from Lee’s archive as a cornerstone, such as their Rider and Loco jacket, Bib-overall, Carpenter pants, Dungarees, and so on. Next to these denim items, they developed some essential jersey pieces and accessories too. They’re all made from sustainable materials.
Chris Waldeck, EVP Global Brand President, Lee About the Collaboration
”Lee is proud to be collaborating with H&M to continue our efforts to make better denim. Our brand was founded more than 130 years ago with innovation in mind, and today we are happy to be joining with H&M to advance denim into a more sustainable future.”
Availability Of The Collection
The Lee X H&M collection is available in selected stores and online since the 28th of January, and the kid’s collection only via H&M online. Some of the items are already sold out, so you have to be quick to get your hands on one of these collaboration styles.
