Talks have reportedly broken down between specialty apparel retailer J. Crew and Uniqlo parent Fast Retailing, according to a report by Dow Jones that cited sources.

The news follows a report by the Wall Street Journal last month reported that J. Crew was in talks with the Japan-based retailer, in what was said to be a $5 billion deal.

Despite the breakdown, Dow Jones reported discussions between the two companies could still be rekindled.
