The Fall - Jil Sander To Leave Uniqlo

Jil Sander and Uniqlo are to part ways after a two-year collaboration.

The German designer has worked with the Japanese label since 2008 but her autumn/winter 2011 collection for the +J range will be her last for the high street store.

A Uniqlo press release said: "With the recent completion of the design of the fall and winter collection, Ms. Sander and Uniqlo agreed that they had fully explored the possibilities of their creative collaboration and accomplished what they had set out to do. Consequently, the two parties have decided to wrap up their design consulting agreement with this collection."

Jil joined the Uniqlo in 2009 - after a five-year break from the industry - and was appointed creative director of the brand's menswear and womenswear as well as launching +J, which focused on the designer's famously minimal, clean aesthetic.

Speaking at the time the collaboration was announced, Jil said: "I have always been fascinated by the original concept of high street fashion, by the idea of offering attractive, clean-cut clothes to everyone. When I started my own company, I dreamt of seducing women with a style of grown-up beauty, smart, great cutting, comfortable quality and a dynamic look. I am still on that mission, and I feel that there is a strong desire on the new worldwide market for clothes of my liking.

"If you want to make a real difference in the future of fashion, it makes a lot of sense to engage in a company that has the power to reach people on a global scale."
