The German designer brings her signature modern style to this exceptional Uniqlo x Jil Sander Fall 2020 +J line for women and men of sophisticated essentials.
“I set out to define the global modern uniform with this in mind: Clothes should be long-lasting and enduring. They should serve the wearer and give her or him the energy and self-assurance which is so much needed in our global reality,” commented Jil Sander.
Inspired by a sense of enlightened understatement, the line consists of versatile, iconic pieces. Fine tailoring and sculptural shapes come together with an overall balance of proportion, ease, and comfort. Distinct lines give definition to moving panels and architectural silhouettes. Volumes, while generous, are well fitted.
A variety of quality materials ranges from functional fabrics to herringbone tweed. Weaves and surface treatments animate the pieces with an almost tactile visual impact. Sartorial points of interest lie in the fine workmanship of pockets, zippers, stitching, and contrast lining.
Outerwear designs include hybrid down styles, utility-inspired jackets, military blousons, and cashmere blend coats with a full yet body conscious cut. Tailored jackets and gabardine pants in wool feature a papery finish. Luxe oversized shirts come in a classic palette from ivory to black and white, or with playful contrasting color patterns. Sweaters are beautifully knit from fine-gauge cashmere to extra fine merino wool and blends. Long knit dresses and a sculptural skirt display an aesthetic of energy and purity.
