If Uniqlo chooses to purchase quality materials, then the overall product should be nice. Depends on how they choose to run the operation, could be good, could be bad.

More analogous to Gap or AA (cheap basics) than H&M or Zara ("fast fashion"), I think.

I think it's more of a way for her to get out there and do something again and for Uniqlo who is already known for "basics" to be now lead by the Queen of Basics.

The line is going to be named +J
post #38 of 439
If she is taking on a serious role in this, I would trust Jil Sander, more than any designer in the industry, to make something legitimately good out of this line. Price point be damned, Jil has always been my most revered designer and I have high hopes for this, purely on the basis that she has never once disappointed me with any article of clothing she has designed.

I concur. J+ has alot of potential.

Brian expressed my sentiments exactly. I have high hopes that this will be kop worthy.

There is no way the +J collection or whatever they want to call it, will be priced the same way normal Uniqlo pieces are priced. I would expect the +J stuff to be a bump above the pricing of the designer collab stuff. I imagine it like Topman's nicer stuff or H&Ms nicer stuff (forget what they call it); it's going to be more expensive but it will still be very reasonable, and knowing Uniqlo and Jil, it's going to be very very worth it.

TOKYO"”Jil Sander's much-anticipated collection for Uniqlo has been dubbed +J.

On Wednesday, Uniqlo unveiled the name and simple black logo in sans serif font, true to the designer's minimalist sensibility.

As reported, the Japanese fast fashion brand, which is owned by Fast Retailing Co. Ltd., and the German designer had to find a creative detour around the fact that fellow Japanese firm Onward Holdings Co. Ltd. owns the designer's former fashion house and retains commercial rights to her full name.

Jil Sander's creative role at Uniqlo extends beyond the +J collection to the brand's other apparel and accessories for men and women. But it is understood that the designer is focusing her initial efforts on the fall/winter launch of this newly created collection, flying frequently between her home in Hamburg, Germany and Tokyo.

The +J collection will be sold at Uniqlo's flagship stores in major cities and on the brand's own website. A release date has not been established yet, according to a Fast Retailing spokeswoman.

Jil Sander's collaboration with Uniqlo, first announced in March, marks her long-awaited comeback to the fashion world. It has been about five years since she left her namesake fashion house after clashing with the brand's then-owner Prada Group.

I think Uniqlo actually does a decent job with their fabrics, all things considered. You can go there during sales and buy cashmere sweaters for like $10-20, come on. Their cottons are all fairly unoffensive and I think they have the kind of power to blend up their own fabrics to suit the Jil stuff without having to jack up prices much more. It ain't gonna be Loro Piana textiles but myths are created daily too, and people go hysteric about perceived qualities.

I am very interested. Will have to go to their flagship store in London when it gets released.
