+J: Fall/Winter 2011 Launch

A couple days ago I hit up Uniqlo to check out the final +J collection. There was a bit of line up in the store but nothing too crazy. The two new stores opening on 34th and 5th Ave will also carry the lineup so fear not in case you don't get a chance to check it out.

Overall - the collection is heavy on outerwear and there was a noticeable improvement in the construction of the outerwear over the previous fall/winter season - definitely a plus. The shapes of the jacket themselves also ramped up this season which was nice to see. Prices for outerwear range from $169.90 - $229.90.

Jackets seemed to be moving quickly - along with size selection so if you're looking to pick up some items now's the time!

If you're a fan of the puffer, there were a few of the quilted down parkas left and quite a few vests.
The jacket shown above left is one of the items on my shortlist - unfortunately, it's launch date is set for late October so for now I'll just have to wait. I love the simplicity of the jacket paired with the oversized collar and hood.

Plenty of blazers in tweed and wool were available including this flannel shawl collar piece (shown above left) and tweed blazer (shown above left). Prices on blazers run from $169.90-$199.90.

The other items that I thought were great were the pants. Slim fitting wool pants all going for $69.90 which can carry you from the office to happy hour.
