Uniqlo, Jil Sander Call It Quits

A look from the Jil Sander Fall 2011 runway.

Show's over, folks.

Uniqlo and German designer Jil Sander have announced that they are ending their design collaboration.

"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," the parties say in a joint release. "Consequently, the two parties have decided to wrap up their design consulting agreement with this collection."

Yep, the minimalist +J Fall 2011 collection will be the last, despite fetching a Brit Insurance Design Fashion Award earlier this year.

Sander, who first joined forces with the Japanese retailer in 2009, will also step down as creative director for the brand's womenswear and menswear ranges. With Raf Simons helming her eponymous fashion label, it's unclear for now what her next move will be.

Given its recent collaborations with the likes of Vena Cava and Costello Tagliapietra, Uniqlo no doubt has something in the pipeline. In the meantime, at least we have the Donatella Versace/H&M union to comfort us.
