Uniqlo +J collection launch
It’s no secret that we’re more than a little partial to the +J collection by Jil Sander for Uniqlo. What we’re not so keen on, however, is the scrum that transpires on the store floor whenever Ms Sander brings out a new collection. Which is why we thought we’d share the fact that every single blessed piece of the new S/S 2011 collection will be available online.
Sander has the midas touch, when it comes to making the most deceptively simple pieces feel individual, and the new +J collection is laced with easy silhouettes, effortless tailoring and a welcome interpretation of that luxe-sportswear look that we saw last season.
Featuring a predominantly safari neutral colour palette, the range carries a hint of colour blocking. We love the strong tonal blues mixed with rich tangerine hues, and there is the promise of even brighter tones in the offing for the collections’ high-summer drop, which will hit stores on 24th March.
The collection includes a total selection of around 150 pieces with which to create a whole host of Sander-esque personal uniforms. We predict some frenzied mouse-clicking.
