The final +J Collection from UNIQLO and Jil Sander
After several successful seasons collaborating with Uniqlo, Jil Sander’s +J collection for the Japanese fast fashion giant is unfortunately ending this season.
Word is that a Uniqlo collabo with Undercover is up next, which of course we can’t wait to get our hands on (we love Undercover), however, we’ve also been diehard fans of the +J range for its minimal techno separates that harkened back to Jil’s own days at her eponymous label.
And while her namesake label is thriving in the hands of Raf Simons, Jil’s return on the scene with Uniqlo produced what we consider to be one of the greatest collaborations of all time.
This season is the last time we’ll all be able to score covetable design at prices so reasonable, we don’t hesitate buying multiples of the easy to wear updated staples.
And that’s got us itching to pick up as much as possible in the hopes that it will satiate us in the meantime until Jil Sander comes back with another surprising line.
On October 20th the final +J installment is set to hit the web and Uniqlo stores and while we’re already dreading the lines that are certain to linger, we’ll be up and ready for Jil’s tailored goods, modified blazers and outerwear. -Naveed HussainPublished on October 14, 2011
