i'm really quite surprised...
it seemed to me that the only good thing at uniqlo these days is the +J line...
and there have been lines around the store when the +J collections launched...
so it's hard for me to understand this...

definitely a bummer to hear. +J pieces were nice looking and really great quality for the price.

..and another sad thing is that no matter whom she works with in the future the quality probably wont be as good as +J. even if it was a higher end retailer, IMO.

I'm not too surprised...the line was not only set at a different price point than the rest of Uniqlo, but also espoused a completely different aesthetic and philosophy. Sure, the quality/price/design were good, but I think most people turn to Uniqlo when they need cheap and casual items like tees, leggings, underwear, sportswear. Most of which are knits. By contrast, Jil's stuff is largely tailored, meaning there's the additional problem of fit. There were lots of +J items left over for summer sales, and on sale they were still more expensive than the rest.

i guess i only saw it in nyc and it's a really good fit for a city like ny...
so, from my vantage point...it was working pretty well...
even though it didn't sell through completely, there were certainly multiple styles that sold out here...

anyway...
i find nothing else going on at uniqlo that interests me anymore...
and i haven't in awhile now...
...

even the suzuki takayuki collab was disappointing, with only a few good pieces...

but, yeah...
i guess they are forced to think from a more global perspective...
that makes sense...
and i guess it could start to get redundant after awhile...
i think it's a bummer though...

Only realised that she supposed to oversee the whole men's / women's apparel as well. I always wonder why +J have the most section of the store.
From London Oxford Street West one, the on-season collection is on ground while it's on sale now, which still have a large amount of stock, while the previous season are hidden at the basement alongside with the sale from the casual line collection. To a stage, I found a parka from her SS10 collection for £5 (originally priced £49.99)...

but from my perspective, people tends to go in to browse their basics (UV protection / the thermal) and their tees. But collaboration always hangs on, as exposure isn't as much as how H&M do their stuff.

But I will miss her shirts + slim fit trousers and jacket.

oh that's really too bad. i can certainly see melisande's point in that it probably wasn't nearly as commercial as they (and we) hoped and anticipated given their overall direction. but egads was that collection sublime! probably the most beautiful designer collab i've seen so far. i wanted everything including all the women's...that's how captivating it was to me.

oh---
they even called it 'the Final Collection'...

though i think that was a good marketing trick because it's gonna make people want the things even more!...

...

i'm already seeing several items that i hope will find a home in my closet...
thanks for the links~!

I still regret that I didn't stock up on +J items the last time I was in the UK. The few things I bought are so good, the quality is really nice and I wear them all the time.
I see tons of great stuff in the final collection that I want to get. I already have a coat for this winter but I'm tempted to get one of those, they're amazing.

So I've been looking for the perfect black tailored coat, and I think i may have found it!!!...
http://shop.uniqlo.com/uk/goods/069807#colorSelect

I seriously think this coat is absolutely stunning, however it's a lot of money for my budget. I know that it's a classes and the wool/cashmere mix is amazing for the price but I would love to hear how some of you have found the quality to be before I make such a big commitment!
Thanks
