Uniqlo x Jil Sander = +J

Jil Sander has always been known for her precision detailing, emphasizing the importance of cut and draping over time-sensitive fashion trends. After leaving her label in 2005, she has yet to preview a new collection, but on October 1st, in collaboration with Uniqlo, she will be presenting 140+ designs for men and women.

Flashback: Jil Sander Milan, 2005

The above designs illustrate how Jil Sander can stand as a critical designer for women. In 2005, she played with traditional silhouettes and accessories (see Oxfords in photo two), showcasing clothing that can and does stand the test of time. Combine this insight with her ability to craft impeccably tailored and draped clothing and what you have is one of the most compelling designers of our time.

Thankfully, with a capsule line in tow, the world is going to be reintroduced to the legend herself. The same simplified elegance that expanded her appeal in the beginning is captured in her line +J for Uniqlo.
