We caught up with Jil Sander - the greatest living designer in Mitteleuropa - to learn more about her +J, her latest collab with Uniqlo; her view of today’s fashion and of her successors at the house of Jil Sander.
November was a fairly lukewarm month for Uniqlo chain in its domestic market, but at least Japanese sales didn't fall. In fact comparable sales, including online, were up 0.5% year-on-year, while total sales rose 0.8%.
Uniqlo owner Fast Retailing may have taken a 42% pandemic-linked hit in its latest year but it’s forecasting a 60%+ recovery in its operating profit in the current financial year that ends next August.
Fast Retailing is doing all it can to maximise sales opportunities for its brands and said Thursday that it’s adding sales space for its Theory and Comptoir des Cotonniers labels inside its Uniqlo Tokyo global flagship.
