Global apparel retailer Uniqlo announces the launch of the new +J collection in stores and online starting 20 November. This marks the return of Uniqlo’s collaboration with legendary designer Jil Sander, who brings her signature modern style to this exceptional line for women and men.

“It is with the appreciation and excitement of working with Ms Jil Sander that I announce the return of the +J collection. A shared respect for modernity and timeless design is evident in our latest collaboration, particularly in sophisticated, everyday essentials that are well-suited to life today,” said Tadashi Yanai, Chairman, President and CEO of Fast Retailing.

“I set out to define the global modern uniform with this in mind: Clothes should be long-lasting and enduring. They should serve the wearer and give her or him the energy and self-assurance which is so much needed in our global reality,” commented Sander.

The Fall/Winter 2020 +J collection features sophisticated essentials for women and men. Inspired by a sense of enlightened understatement, the line consists of versatile, iconic pieces. Fine tailoring and sculptural shapes come together with an overall balance of proportion, ease, and comfort. There are distinct lines that give definition to moving panels and architectural silhouettes. Sander also played with volumes, while generous, are well-fitted.

A variety of quality materials ranges from functional fabrics to herringbone tweed. Weaves and surface treatments animate the pieces with an almost tactile visual impact. Sartorial points of interest lie in the fine workmanship of pockets, zippers, stitching, and contrast lining.

The lineup includes 37 items for women, 25 items for men and 4 accessories. Prices start from S$29.90 onwards.

The full collection will be made available at the Orchard Central Global Flagship store and online at uniqlo.com. Some items are available at selected stores.
