Back in July, Uniqlo announced that it had already lined up a replacement for the soon-to-end +J collab. Undercover designer Jun Takahashi has joined forces with Uniqlo for a 105 piece collection that will debut on March 16th, under the name Uniqlo Undercover, or UU. The Shophound spotted the first campaign images on Uniqlo's website, which look pretty traditional—even, dare we say, hokey—in comparison to Undercover's edgy designs.
But what it lacks in craziness, it seems to make up for in overall wearability. Uniqlo describes the collection as follows: "The men's line matches gentle colors with darker tones, while Uniqlo Undercover's offerings for women are based upon an exciting palette of colors and patterns drawn from Takahashi's groundbreaking label." There are also children's clothes (27 items for kids, and 5 for babies), and it will all retail between $10.50 and $105. To see the rest of the campaign images—which include a movie theater scene and a family portrait, head here.
