With much talk surrounding the +J collection between Jil Sander and Uniqlo, here’s a further look into the ad campaign that will accompany for the Oct 1st (USA)/Oct 2nd (Asia) release. The collection is moderately priced with pieces ranging from $21 USD – $155 USD. Look for a full spread in this month’s August 24th release of GQ Japan.
JIL’S RETURN: Uniqlo and Jil Sander have finally set a date for the German designer’s long-awaited fashion comeback. The Japanese chain will start selling the +J collection in the United States and the United Kingdom on Oct. 1 and in Asia on Oct. 2. Prices range from 1,990 yen, or about $21 at current exchange, for a stretch t-shirt to 14,900 yen, or $155, for a Chesterfield coat. Photos of the products, including tailored shirts, button-down jackets and sweaters, leaked online earlier this week. But on Thursday, Uniqlo unveiled a couple shots from the line’s new advertising campaign, which will break August 24 in GQ Japan. Shot by David Sims, it features black and white images of wind-blown models Sean Opry and Isabeli Fontana.
