Jil Sander for Uniqlo – Fashionable Minimalism Comes to the Masses
For those of you who know the German fashion house Jil Sander, you know that their clothing is the epitome of minimalism with a high end price tag. Like most struggling artist fashionistas, my funds for designer threads are about as available as my super is when the toilet breaks – utterly non existent. That being said, when Uniqlo announced that they would be teaming up with Jil Sander this fall to design a less costly take on their famously minimalist design, I shrieked with delight. I’ve always loved Jil Sander’s dark colours, bold cuts and emphasis on the ultimate shape of the clothing rather than littering the pieces with distracting embellishments. The Jil Sander for Uniqlo collection will hit stores October 1st of this year, and I plan on being one of the first in line.
