Global apparel retailer UNIQLO has unveiled their latest collaboration with German fashion designer Jil Sander for the spring summer season. For their second collection J+ will feature Sander’s signature minimalist style embodied in pieces to emerge from the dark winter into the lightness of spring.
Reduced to their purest form, sharp silhouettes display an airy clarity. “The overall idea is sophistication,” says Jil Sander. “A kind of purity that lets us think of regeneration and a fresh start.”
Lightweight techno silk blends are the highlight of the women’s range, from a graphic half-sleeve dress and flared skirt to a subtly refined summer parka. Exquisitely tailored in smooth SUPIMA Cotton, the standout three-quarter length dolman sleeve shirt features a voluminous silhouette. Exceptional tailoring also distinguishes the men’s lineup. An oversized hooded long coat with a pale grey texture displays a carefully sculpted 3D volume, while a classic polo is defined by a crisp fit. Authentic selvedge denim for men and women exhibit a cool, straight silhouette.
The +J SS21 collection will be available starting March 25th at uniqlo.com and at UNIQLO stores.
