i was getting excited because naturally when i saw the title of the thread i though of jil sander the brand, and not the actual person. since i'm not familiar with her work i guess giving my opinion is pointless now.
well best of luck to her.
so, it's indeed been her...!! i saw a woman very similarly looking to jil walking around the tradeshow and i thought the similarities were just so striking! good to have the real jil back on track with such an exciting new project!
I can't wait to see the results, it's a perfect match.
Is Uniqlo available anywhere in Europe?
Bidwell.. you can get Uniqlo in France.. http://www.uniqlo.com/fr/store/index.html#france
What a surprise! Uniqlo?!
I'm sensing an awesome comeback!
This is interesting and a bit peculiar since I always thought it was compromises in quality that led Sander to head out of Prada Group. Although, Uniqlo does have unusually nice fabrics for its price point, they work out long term contracts with Italian mills. Looking forward to seeing how this all plays out.
There is a shop @ La Défense ... in a centre commercial ... terrible travel to get there ...
I know they had opened some corner shops during last summer to see if it would take in Paris' heart ... I don't know what's going on since then ...
Just hope they will open more 'corners' in province or even in paris ...
because travelling to La Défense (from paris' heart) isn't great ... the thing is like non-end !
ironic but probably better for them how things turn out, fast retailing was in pursuit of jil sander the brand before it being acquired by onward holdings, and now they have the designer herself.
prices aside, uniqlo for basics is fine, but the quality is still a few notches away.
what? omg! yay!
"Some of you [have known] me since I have been engaged in fashion but I'm not interested in the past. Let us talk today about the future" the designer, clad in a black knee-length coat, told journalists assembled at the Four Seasons Hotel. "I'm here in Tokyo for something completely different. The challenge for me is to establish a premium quality in a democratically-priced range."
oh this is exciting...
jil is so cute!
this sounds like a cool partnership
from the telegraph:
this is truly TRULY exciting!!!
I HAVE to see the results of this. Thank God there is UNIQLO in NYC.
Any thoughts on when can we expect to see a possible change in what's on the shelves at Uniqlo ?
perhaps more sander-esque tweed jackets and nylon-neoprene hybrid windbreaker?
well there are many uniqlo stores in hong-kong and its very popular with the masses. the last time i shopped there was for a series of London Pop Artist Tee Shirts
I'm curious how Sander will mesh with the company's design directors and their studios, (they have designers in London, NYC, and Tokyo), plus the trend and color researchers. There might be too many cooks in the kitchen. I imagine her presence will help push the fabric research as well as give Uniqlo some signature pieces and details that will help cement it's identity... to avoid the fate that The GAP ended up with.
