Uniqlo X +J – Best High Street Collaboration Yet?


Japanese high street retailer, Uni Qlo have teamed up with Jil Sander to create the +J range. On my lunch break, I decided pop over to see what all the fuss has been about. I was greated by a big queue and it took about 20 minutes to be granted access to the Uni Qlo palace on Oxford street.

As you would expect, the range is of high quality and you wouldn’t expect less from Uniqlo as I believe they make the best quality garments on the high street by far. The main difference between Uniqlo and +J is the tailoring. This is particularly evident on the +J suit jackets which have a much slimmer fit compared to Uniqlo’s more casual fit.  The rest of the range features some nice little winter warmers which are perfect for this time of year and even some lovely cashmere jumpers.

Previous High Street collaborations may have sounded more attractive, for example, H&M X Comme des Garcons but I have to say, this has been my favourite because of the high quality in tailoring, choice of material and the versatility of the range to create a great outfit as the weather continues to cool. The + J range is only available at selcted stores and online.

I’d read a press release about the collaboration but haven’t yet got round to seeing any images so was really interested to read what you had to say about it. Have to say I was concerned about the styling and whether Uniqlo’s more relaxed style was going to influence the tailoring of the suits, so it’s great to hear the reality is far sharper than that.

Now I just need to join the queue and go check it out for myself!
