Uniqlo will launch its second +J collection later this month. This continues last season’s popular return of the fast-fashion retailer’s collaboration with designer Jil Sander, who brings her signature modern style to this line for men and women.

The +J spring/summer 2021 collection features controlled sculptural tailoring emphasizing movement, lightness, and space. Thoughtful design infuses essential pieces with versatility and practicality for life outdoors. A selection of natural fibers and comfortable blends defines effortless styles with luxurious texture and sheen. Colors reflect the chromatic palette of northern light, with the indigo and ink of summer night skies in cool contrast to ivory, caramel, and khaki.

Exceptional tailoring distinguishes the men’s lineup. An oversized hooded long coat with a pale grey texture displays carefully sculpted 3-D volume, while a classic polo is defined by a crisp fit. Authentic selvedge denim jeans for men and women exhibit a cool, straight silhouette.

“The overall idea is sophistication,” said Sander. “A kind of purity that lets us think of regeneration and a fresh start.”

The new +J collection, which retails between $19.90 and $199.90, will be available at select Uniqlo stores and on uniqlo.com from March 25th.
