Following her successful Uniqlo debut in October, German designer Jil Sander has launched her second '+J' collection for the Japanese retailer on January 7 in the UK, with the US to follow on January 14, and France on January 20.

Sander's new range is constructed around three themes ('Simplicity,' 'Natural Nobility,' and 'Clarity and Brightness') with Uniqlo describing the items as "functionally elegant," providing a focus on innovative materials and precise cuts, the designer's signature aesthetic. Additional care was taken to make the collection 'environmentally responsible.'

Colors will be muted, ranging from whites and ivories to pastels, so it is likely that Sander's new clothes will make for yet some more elegant basics rather than wardrobe stand-outs.

As with the first collection, the second +J range will comprise coats and jackets, pants and skirts, shirts, sweaters, cardigans and t-shirts, with prices from €19.90 to €149.90.
