    The prices are actually going to be much higher that nymag supposes. Not that much lower than the main line actually.

    Yes, but how are they gonna cash on the success of +J if the pricepoints will be way higher than what Jil herself is designing at those radically low pricepoints for Uniqlo? The fabrics and the finishing on many of those pieces are quite outstanding for a fast fashion/designer collaboration and it definitely reaches to the same, fashion-concsious customer that mixes and matches designer pieces with low key essentials.

    Less of a secondary line, the new label seems to be more of a casual extension of them main collection. I'm skeptical, it sounds like Jil Sander is trying to become more "understandable. And if you've seen Raf Simons' more "understandable" RAF line....it could be a monstrosity....

    this navy line would get marketed to actual jil sander customers and not the fast fashion customer. while the +j line represents a godsend for the fast fashion customer, many wealthier customers still prefer secondary lines from higher end retailers than those more accessible offerings from the uniqlos, h+ms, zaras, and topshops of the world.

    This is amazing, they probably needed something to get access to a younger group of customers and the Navy line is beyond clever for that.

    I hope they'll also manufacture men's clothing.

    Those are some really nice pieces! I'd like to know if they've done menswear aswell, would be interesting to see what it would look like.

    hm i'm a little skeptical. like others said, it's pretty "raf" rather than "jil". i kind of like the outfit in the third pictures above though, the grey mesh looking dress
