Much has been made of the collection Jil Sander has created for Uniqlo entitled +J and with this further look it is easy to see why. The collection will be in store from October 1 in the US and October 2 in Asia while here is a look at an ad campaign created with GQ Japan that will be in news agents from August 24.

“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”.
