Jil Sander x Uniqlo: [the]aftermath

with one comment

I know this post may be a lil late because the jump for the +J Collection was last Thursday, however the collection is still going strong at Uniqlo’s flagship store in Soho [Excuse the clarity of these pics, they were taken on my cell]. I went the day that the collection was released but apparently I went at the opportune time because I was in line for like 7 MINUTES…

…The exclusivity was presented in the form of white drapes forming a partition from the rest of the store

…Then it got crazy on the inside…

…Of course the women had more pieces but the men had their share of eye catching separates. If your into minimal details that pop then this was the collab for you. There were some very clean looking woolens like the Chesterfield coat and the wool blazer for men, but the women had the one item that I wanted…a pea coat…

…But they had some interesting pieces that I had my eyes on. There were these khaki cotton/satin pants that had like a slight sheen to them. Then there was this cotton turtleneck long sleeve shirt with a wide, high neck that made this drapey, funnel look. There was this half zip hoodie with a black coated zipper placket that was nice too. Everyone was clamoring for the denim pinpoint oxford shirt. The blazers were nice; especially velvet one and the wool, salt and pepper looking one that had that Jil Sander cut. The outerwear was amazing too. My favorite was the down funnel hooded coat. The down jackets for men and women were also very nice. There was this reversible one for men that was navy on the outside and brown on the inside but you could cuff the sleeves so that you could see the brown inner…PUNCTILIO.

AND how could I forget the cashmere section…

…This cardigan also came in pink with gray trim. I really wanted the cashmere stole that was around the maniquin’s neck. I went back yesterday and saw that they put out the plaid shirts. I think that a +J plaid button-up would be a nice essential for that hunter gatherer look.
