Goodbye +J!

Finally, the successful collaboration between Jil Sander and Uniqlo has come to an end. Who could have guessed that Uniqlo would be the retailer to launch Jil Sander's comeback? From what I recall, this is probably one of the most successful fashion designer + retailer collaborations in recent years besides the H & M one.

Since A/W 2011 was the last season, most items were snapped up pretty quickly in London esp. during the sales. I happened to walk past Uniqlo in Paris and was glad to see quite a few +J items still available (and in my size). Eventually, I bought this military green mid-length wool coat, reduced to €80 from €200! It is a classic and timeless coat that will last a long time, so I am very happy with this purchase.

Now I wonder if the new UU collection, a collaboration with the funky and avant-garde Japanese label, Undercover will bring surprises or not?

Looking at their official campaigne photos (here), Jun Takahashi seemed to have toned down and designed a 'wearable' family collection. Though all will be revealed in a month's time, so we will have to wait and see...
