Fast fashion giants have been working with high-end designers for some time now. From capsules to full collections, appending the mark of high-end fashion has helped drive foot traffic into stores while putting designer names into consumer conversations.

In 2009, UNIQLO and designer Jil Sander began a three-year collaboration under the +J moniker. Considered by many as one of the most successful co-brands of high-fashion and consumer retail, the UNIQLO +J collection drew a cult following amongst shoppers for its minimalist approach to fits, cuts and color, and exceptional shapes.

Today, UNIQLO will certainly make fans of the collection happy with the announced re-launch of key pieces from past +J collections under the “Best of +J” name. The re-issued collection includes womenswear and men’s pieces including button-up shirts, wool sweaters and coats.

The “Best of +J” collection arrives in 15 UNIQLO markets and online come October 10. UNIQLO’s new Chestnut Street store in Philadelphia will get the collection early, on October 3.
