UNIQLO REVISITS +J. Remember the wildly successful marriage between UNIQLO and Jil Sander that gave birth to the +J collection? Well, UNIQLO is relaunching selected pieces that capture the essence of +J today. Look out for ultra-sleek and minimalist pieces such as coats, down jackets and sweaters for women; and slim-fit shirts, jackets and tapered pants for men.

The full collection is available at UNIQLO stores at 313@Somerset, ION Orchard and Suntec City as well as online, while selected pieces are available at Changi Airport and One Raffles Place outlets. Prices range from S$49.90 to S$299.90.

PERSONALISED FOOTWEAR. If you missed out on the chance to snag a pair of Prada’s Spring/Summer 2011 women’s espadrilles, you’d be pleased to know the label’s highly sought-after styles are back with a bespoke twist. For a limited time only, with Prada’s Made-To-Order Micro Soles, you can have a pair you can truly call your own. Select from 32 different colour variations in single shades such as cobalt blue and scarlet, or in two-tone combinations including black and white or mercury and white. Then, choose your material — brushed calfskin (S$1,790), python skin (S$3,250) or crocodile leather (S$3,980) — and seal the deal with your initials branded on the sole. It takes 60 days for delivery after placing your order.

Available until Oct 15 at Prada Paragon and from Oct 16 to 31 at Prada ION Orchard.
