[UPDATED] Shop the post: Uniqlo +J by Jil Sander is back



Jil Sander is back designing for the high street

[UPDATED – It’s launched! Click to shop below…]

I was brutally critical of the last Uniqlo X Jil Sander collection. I tried on a few pieces in store, found the cut and quality lacking and didn’t give it a second chance. That was 11 years ago. Now it’s time for Uniqlo +J mark two.

The men’s and women’s collection launches just launched in stores and online on 12th November and looks flawless. Prices range from £24.90 to £299. My standouts are the Hybrid Down Short Coat* (£159.90) and Hybrid Down Jacket* (£109.90), the Cashmere Blend Collarless Coat* (£199.90), the Fine Gauge Cashmere Crew Neck* (£89.90) and the Supima Cotton Stand Collar Shirt* (£34.90). The trousers sound promising but I can’t see them properly on the model.

Interesting, but not altogether surprising that there’s no athleisure or ‘bleisure‘ (business-leisure) wear included, as while they may be Covid-relevant, sweats were never a Sander thing. But overall it looks timeless and well made and should chime with the current ‘elevated basics’ zeitgeist.

Shop the post: AMI Paris womenswear AW20



AMI Paris AW20 womenswear

I’ve spent a good few years fawning over AMI Paris’s menswear, so it’s great to see the fully realised womenswear come to pass. This sort of ‘vetements‘ offering is what the French do really well. The perfect trouser, blazer, sweater etc to create your basic ‘garconne‘ wardrobe to personalise as you see fit. Watch out A.P.C!

Of particular interest to me is the outerwear. (more…)



Remember Mahabis? They’re back



Good to see the return (and improvement of) the OG Mahabis slippers.

These were all over my social media back in the early days and a huge hit with stay-at-home millennials. Until an unfortunate blip in 2018 sent the company hurtling into administration, to be rescued by Simba Sleep founder, James Cox.

Now the original slipper design has been revived as the ‘Curve’ model, a return to Mahabis’ signature silhouette with contrasting rubber sole and toe detail (more…)
