Uniqlo to bring back +J line

Wednesday, 10 September 2014
Although Jil Sander may have recently left her eponymous fashion house, the famed German designer's minimalist designs may soon be available in store under another apparel label: Uniqlo.

The Japanese fashion label revealed on Wednesday that it will introduce a re-launched special collection featuring "the greatest designs" from the +J collection. Sander first began collaborating with the fashion retailer over five seasons, from fall-winter 2009.

Uniqlo, owed by parent company Fast Retailing, stated that it will reissue "carefully selected garments," such as the wool sweaters and button-down shirts from this month onwards in 15 different markets where it has main stores located.

A company spokesman revealed to WWD that Sander herself was not involved in the revival of + J and it remains unclear if Uniqlo will continue the re-launch after the fall-winter 2014 season.
