Jil Sander and Uniqlo’s Latest +J Collection Has Us Ready To Re-Emerge

By now, most of us have quenched our thirsts for loungewear. A return to a life lived outside our homes means we’re now musing as to how we will dress after what’s become a tumultuous, sweatpant-saturated year. We’re ready to dress up again, but what, exactly, does that look like? To us, it looks a lot like Uniqlo’s +J SS21 collection—the latest in the ongoing collaboration between designer Jil Sander and Uniqlo. In the new collection (which launches today), Sander delivers us the picture of modern fashion. Sander’s unrivaled minimalism paired with Uniqlo’s universal appeal means that garments are as sleek as they are wearable—the ideal combination for life in the upcoming months.

For spring, the popular +J collection (which was revived last fall) is filled with wardrobe-defining pieces that are clean-lined (and comfortable!) and will have us ready for life outdoors. Think simple sheer knits, perfectly-tailored tees, oversized blazers, and clean-lined trousers. Standouts include a roomy silk-blend dress in black, a straight-lined linen midi-skirt, and a hooded parka with just the slightest sheen. These pieces are the best kind of wardrobe essentials—affordable and smartly designed to withstand the test of time. The Jil Sander and Uniqlo spring range feels like a fresh start, redefining the modern uniform for the next phase of being back out in the world.

The range goes live today. Here, shop the minimalist pieces below.
