A Legacy of Beauty

Prestigious French beauty brand, Sisley Paris, is the long-trusted team behind our runway shows. Our collective visions meld in the belief that nature has the ability to empower—we invoke its transformative beauty through patterns, silhouettes, and color, and the family-owned brand harnesses the finest botanicals to create highly effective skincare and cosmetics.

Ignited by our shared synergies, our exclusive collaboration was born from a mutual admiration between Ulla and Sisley Global Vice President Christine d’Ornano. Her parents Isabelle and Hubert d’Ornano founded the company in 1979, revolutionizing the beauty industry with plant-derived products formulated with meticulous attention to detail and advanced scientific research.

Our founder and d’Ornano sat down to delve into how the collaboration came forth, the exclusive rendition of our Adria bag they co-designed to house the products, and what they love most about each other’s respective brands.

Christine: I met Ulla through a mutual friend. We quickly realised that we were fans of each other’s brands—I loved her clothes and she loved our skincare and makeup! Working together felt like a natural progression. First Sisley did the skincare and makeup backstage at Ulla Johnson’s show, and today we’ve co-designed a bag and filled it with Ulla’s favorite Sisley products. 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 makeup. Our clients have a lot in common and share the same values.

Ulla: We developed an exclusive size of our signature Wave bag for our partnership—it’s a clutch but large enough to hold everything you need. A beautifully handcrafted style, it is made in Italy with a removable pouch within, offering a burst of colour. It’s important to me to create things of beauty that work. We wanted everything to be multi-functional—the clutch can also be worn as a crossbody while the pouch can be used separately for travel.

Christine: We met up in New York and found a material and shape that we were both happy with. I love the natural leather; the bag is easy to carry and very characteristic of Ulla Johnson’s chic, feminine style. Ulla then selected the Sisley products that she uses daily.

Ulla: The Black Rose Cream Mask, Black Rose Eye Contour Fluid, All Day All Year and Nutritive Lip Balm 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.

Christine: Ulla’s selections are must-haves. The award-winning Black Rose Mask is a great pick me up product. It instantly plumps, hydrates and gives a fantastic glow. You apply it for 5-10 minutes in a thick layer and the skin literally drinks it. You remove any excess with a tissue and the skin is transformed. The Black Rose Eye treats the delicate skin around the eyes. It helps treat dark circles and bags and also deeply hydrates. All Day All Year, as mentioned before, forms the perfect shield for the day. It contains UVA and UVB filters, which are encapsulated, so they stay effective for over 8 hours. That is very important as most filters last only two-three hours. Finally, the lip balm keeps your lips hydrated and plumped. It also gives a beautiful sheen to the lips. 

Great skin gives so much confidence. Whether you spend five or twenty minutes in the morning applying your skincare, it is a special moment that you spend on yourself. Effectiveness is important, but also the smell and the texture of your skincare gives you a sense of calm and wellbeing, which can change your mood for the day.  

Ulla: The partnership between both brands, from the shows to this collaboration, is based on genuine admiration and mutual synergies. This is a pure celebration of products we can’t live without.
