Respect for the environment was a priority from the beginning, as the team made sure that plants and wildlife were not damaged or disturbed at any time during the project.
All agreements were made together with the locals, under respect of their traditions and culture.

Last Thursday, Audrey Tautou, January Jones, Freida Pinto, Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, Olga Kurylenko, Alice Dellal, Mélanie Doutey and Lou Lesage gathered in Paris to celebrate the launch of the Isabel Marant pour H&M collection.
The collection was presented in cinematic settings that mixed images, films and models, with live performances by Grandmaster Melle Mel and Rappers Delight, originally of Sugarhill Gang.
The event transported guests to a street slice of Paris in the early ’90s, when Isabel debuted her eponymous line.
“We wanted to present the collection in a way that felt real and casual, not a red-carpet extravaganza: this is how I see my work. I design for everybody and am constantly inspired by the world I see around me, so it felt natural to have an urban setting as the backdrop of the event. And it had to be Paris, because the city is part of my DNA,” says Isabel Marant.
“This street celebration was the perfect way to launch a collection that oozes the energy of cool Parisian style. It felt optimistic and real: a reflection of Isabel Marant’s knack for urban sophistication and bohemia. I think the collection for women, men and teen captures her spirit and I hope our customers are as excited as we are for the launch,” says Margareta van den Bosch, Creative Advisor at H&M.

The collection will hit 250 stores worldwide and online beginning November 14, 2013. The collection will include clothing and accessories for women and teenagers. Isabel will also, for the first time, create a collection for men.

Women who go though breast surgery—either for medical or cosmetic purposes—need specialized bras capable of handling their delicate condition.
For women who have had full mastectomy, lumpectomy, breast enhancement, or breast reduction, Marks & Spencer recently launched post-surgery bras.
Post-surgery overlaid floral lace bra (Php 1,950)
Those who have gone under the knife cannot go into fitting right away, as their chest can still be swollen and tender, with scars and dressing still fresh.
Fitting can start at least six weeks after surgery, and they can go to Marks & Spencer’s for that.
At Marks & Spencer, bra fitters will treat them with utmost care and sensitivity, and they will be shown with empathy—not sympathy. They will be presented with the bras that will suit their needs.
Post-surgery smooth orchid embroidered bra (Php 1,950)
Marks & Spencer’s post-surgery bras have dual pockets, cotton liners, modesty panels, and sturdy stitching.
It also has side sling support and comfort under bands to ensure maximum protection.
Stylish and functional, Marks & Spencer’s extensive collection of post-operation underwear can make women feel good on the inside and look great on the outside.
No other high-end retail company cares for women with special breast concerns than Marks & Spencer.
