Antoni Porowski, the Emmy-nominated food and wine host of Netflix's "Queer Eye," has designed a "sustainably-minded new capsule collection" in collaboration with J BRAND.

The handsome "Queer Eye" chef and fan of J BRAND clothing was approached by the company to collaborate, which resulted in "a collection of 10 pieces designed in an eco-friendly way," TÊTU reports. Porowski says, "these pieces — like my go-to skinny silhouette in three classic denim washes and my matching leather pant and jacket getup (naturally) — are as classic as mozzarella sticks and timeless enough to last beyond the days of social distancing and sourdough starters."

Of the ten pieces in the capsule collection, the Mick Skinny — Porowski's favorite jeans — is updated as The Modern Skinny and available in black, blue denim faded, ripped blue, and lambskin. The Pleated Trouser — available in beige and khaki — features a straight cut and 7/8-inch length designed to slim the silhouette. Rounding out the collection are the Easy Tee, a basic printed top available in two options, and two different jackets — the Leather Trucker and the Bomber Jacket.

An eco wash process contributes to the "sustainability-minded" aspect of this collection, "which uses 90% less water than traditional processes," and features organic cotton and recycled nylon for the tees and bomber jacket, respectively.

Porowski's collection is available here.
