UNIQLO, the Japanese global apparel retailer, announced the opening of UNIQLO TOKYO in Tokyo’s Ginza shopping district on 19th June.
This store is a renovation of what was formerly the UNIQLO Marronnier Gate Ginza store on the 7th floor of Marronnier Gate Ginza 2 building, which after eight years has been expanded to the first through fourth floors of the building, and the interior fully remodeled.
LifeWear is the UNIQLO commitment to offer well-designed clothing that meets everyone’s needs for daily wear. High-quality, functional, affordable and innovative, LifeWear will be available in the new store in a variety of colors and designs for men, women, kids and babies across four floors.
UNIQLO TOKYO was created as the new global flagship store to embody the LifeWear ideal. Based on the concept of “All of LifeWear Is Here,” the store was developed by employing the talents of Kashiwa Sato as Total Creative Director, along with Herzog & de Meuron, the Swiss architectural firm that has received the Pritzker Prize, as well as Japan’s Praemium Imperiale.
The Ginza and Yurakucho districts are currently undergoing redevelopment, and the opening of a location in this prime area is an important and major part of the UNIQLO store development strategy. The company considers this to be a key store that will change the flow of customers in Ginza, conveying to visitors the latest LifeWear, and allowing them to experience the world’s finest products and services.
