Fashion: +J (the end)
Posted: November 26, 2011 Filed under: Fashion, Troy | Tags: black, designer collection, Jil Sander, Uniqlo + J
If I was in New York this weekend, my top shopping priority would be to head (back) to Uniqlo to snap up the last pieces of Jil Sander‘s final +J collection.
The German minimalist designer has done two annual collections for the Asian clothing superstore and the parting was said to be mutual.
While the practice of super-high end fashion designers doing collections for mass-market retailers has become commonplace, +J was noted for its exceptional quality at an amazing price point.
I’ll gladly vouch for +J; the cuts and the fabrics are impressive and affordable. The winter coats are chic and look like they cost $1,500 while most are under $300…if not further marked down for Black Friday. (As I write this I’m wearing the men’s fuzzy black cardigan)
Allegedly, Uniqlo will be opening in Canada at Toronto’s Yorkdale Mall…
