Fashion and beauty collaborations are fast becoming our favourite type of partnership. A common practice in the world of luxury and streetwear, cross-industry collabs have segued into the beauty space. The move signals a desire to stir up excitement around new make-up, fragrance and skincare drops. In 2020, gender-neutral fragrance brand Boy Smells paired up with cult fashion brand Ganni; clean makeup favourite Saie joined forces with Reformation to offer up sustainable make-up routines in 2022; and more recently celebrity favourite Merit teamed up with Tove to bring us a silky, minimalist pouch to accessorise an outfit with or use as a chic make-up bag. And now, we welcome - arguably - the trendiest collaboration of the year, introducing the mash up of NYC fashion brand Ulla Johnson and French beauty giant Sisley Paris.

Ulla Johnson and Sisley Paris have co-designed a limited edition bag filled with Johnson's most-loved Sisley products. Johnson notes, 'The Black Rose Cream Mask, £140, Black Rose Eye Contour Fluid, £125, All Day All Year, £340, and Nutritive Lip Balm, £66, are all products that I love. Thanks to their scent and results on the skin and well-being, when integrated into a daily routine, Sisley products act, in my opinion, as mood boosters – a power very similar to that of clothing.'

It's the perfect marriage. Global vice president of Sisley, Christine D'Ornano, and Manhattan-born designer, Ulla Johnson, share a mutual love of each others' brands, so much so both companies have historically worked together backstage at Johnson’s runway shows to create elegant but wearable beauty looks.

Each hero product is housed inside an exclusive sized Ulla Johnson Wave bag, made especially for this collaboration – a tan-coloured clutch which is large enough to hold all the very best beauty contents and features a removable cotton interior pouch which echoes the key prints from Ulla Johnson’s Autumn-Winter 2024 collection.

'Ulla’s colour palette is unique and immediately recognisable. Her silhouettes are feminine and suit women of all ages, enhancing their natural beauty, just like Sisley skincare and make-up. Our clients have a lot in common and share the same values,' adds Christine D'Ornano.

Beautiful and multi-functional (it can also be worn as a crossbody while the pouch can be used separately for travel), this bag is easily the new must-have luxury skincare and fashion accessory for summer.

Featuring key skincare staples from French beauty giant Sisley Paris, this beautiful handcrafted Italian bag houses The Black Rose Cream Mask, £140, Black Rose Eye Contour Fluid, £125, All Day All Year, £340, and Nutritive Lip Balm, £66 – Johnson's favourites which collectively help to illuminate, smooth and protect skin.
