Lee® 125 ans x Emma François
Emma François, founder of Parisian womenswear brand Sessùn, works with Lee® to bring her refined, upscale design to the project. Finding inspiration in distant cultures, music, art and second-hand culture, it might be a tiny fragment, or subtle discovery, on which the collection is built. As such, Emma’s focus is firmly on the detail, an approach shared by Lee®.
<p style="text-align:justify";> Very attached to knowledge, know-how and textile tradition, passionate about indigo and denim, Emma hosted the 125-Collection with enthusiasm. The pieces created in this capsule collection, called work and folk, are the perfect meeting of the Sessùn’s delicate and feminine style, and the Lee®’s quality and denim knowledge.
<p style="text-align:justify";>Emma beautifully reworks Lee®’s iconic Storm Rider blanket lining into a feminine winter jacket; trims a simple cotton tee with delicate brocade, and uses a pared-down classic fabric for crisp denim shirting.
<p style="text-align:justify";>Drawing on Lee®’s skinny fit Scarlett, new super skinny Toxey, and Sallie Selvage – the relaxed fit and a cute all-in-one salopette – Emma also uses subtle embroidery, bandana belt, natural leather, and cognac tonal stitching to recreate her trademark feminine style with a focus and attention to refined details.
