TOKYO — Fresh out of fashion limbo, Jil Sander is dreaming about how to build a “new paradise.”
To do that, she said she can meld her unique fashion aesthetic of fine lines and precision with the consummate work ethic of Uniqlo, Fast Retailing Co. Ltd.’s fast-growing empire of low-cost but contemporary clothing. It’s a far cry from her attempts to make a success out of her namesake fashion label, which she famously left in 2004 after clashing with the brand’s then-owner Prada Group. But a visibly enthused Sander said she wouldn’t have it any other way.
