Jil Sander for Uniqlo, +J, Takes Its Final Bow

With the kind of hoopla usually reserved for a Kardashian wedding, Uniqlo opened its second New York outpost—its largest store in the world—last week on the corner of 53rd and 5th. But what one hand giveth, the other taketh away. You may recall this season is the final collection of +J, the Japanese retailers’s collaboration with Jil Sander and the line responsible for denizens of New Yorkers queueing up for the perfect collared shirt. The gloriousness of the new flagship notwithstanding, we recommend skipping the line this time and dashing to Uniqlo.com, where the merch can be had starting October 20th at 1:00 am, before arriving in stores the same day. Men’s outerwear is the clear winner, but women will find it hard to click away without indulging in a slick, low-key turtleneck.
