Final Uniqlo +J collection Lookbook

By Laura on August 19th, 2011

A few weeks we announced that the upcoming fall/winter +J collection for Uniqlo would be the last. The lookbook is now out, and I have to say this is possibly the strongest collection yet.

There has undeniably been plenty of hype surrounding this final collection, but I can’t get enough of the contrasting colors, linear cuts and the mix of tech-infused materials with traditional fabrics.

Jil Sander’s was one of the first high-fashion designers to collaborate with a mass-market brand like this, and in many ways really set the benchmark for these types of collections. She has continually brought her own unique, dark and structural aesthetic to the Japanese retailer, and this collection is no exception.

One of the most interesting features of this collection is the mix of sportswear with highly tailored pieces. Although it might seem an unusual combination, it is a look that we are seeing quite a bit of at the moment, and something we expect to take off this winter.

The fianl J+ collection will be Available soon in Uniqlo stores the world over.

Stripe scarves are starting to become so ubiquitous that they’re joining Taz socks and Homer Simpson ties in the naffness leagues, not any old stripe scarf though, it’s the fine stripe stretchy knit scarf with usually comes in a burgundy melange of colours and has fringing on the ends.

Originated by Paul Smith who tried to update the wool school scarf (which is still a glorious accessory despite the association) and then copied by every high street retailer going, this is the one item that everyone seemed to get for Christmas if they didn’t already own it. Pick a tube carriage at random and you can bet at least ten men have got one of these scarves round their neck. No more please!

Stick around to see our alternatives to the stripy scarf tomorrow and jump through to find out who the culprits are. Are you a proud owner of a stripy scarf and can’t see what the fuss is about? Let me know on our Facebook Blog page.
