Final preparations are well underway as Japanese retailer UNIQLO and its parent company, Fast Retailing, scheduled to open its 3rd global flagship at the world’s fashion capital, City of Paris. Housed within newly renovated Neo-Classical building, the new store will take on the name Paris Opera Store, a reference to the historical Palais Garnier (or commonly known as Paris Opera House) across the street. As in all major UNIQLO project, retail space architecture Masamichi Katayama (ç‰‡å±±æ£é€š) and his firm Wonderwall completely revamped the interior into a multi-level store, complete with a grand staircase and a mammoth skylight as centerpiece. Measured around 23,000 square-feet in interior space, the store will also be one of the largest. Plans are to coincide its opening on Thursday, October 1st, along with the global launch of new Jil Sander X UNIQLO – Fall 2009 – J+ Collection.
