Joining the 916 UNIQLO stores worldwide, and considering that UNIQLO has expanded far, far away from its homeland Japan, it seems like a good time to bring the expansion a little close to home, and fittingly, UNIQLO will be opening up its first Taiwan store in Taipei’s Uni Hankyu Mall. The new mall located in the trendy Xin-Yi district which is also an economic hub for the city, will not only play house to UNIQLO, but also to the new W Hotel.
The 150,000 square foot space designed by Japan’s WONDERWALL (who has also previously worked with UNIQLO, BAPE, just to name a few of its notable clients) will be hosting chic and affordable cashmere sweaters that come in more shades than your naked eye can distinguish, and adding a new dimension to the fashion market in Taipei. Competition wise, H&M will also be arriving in Taiwan at ATT’s New York New York mall which is located only a short walk away from Uni Hankyu. Set to unveil this Fall alongside the W Hotel and the new mall located at No. 8 ZhÅngXiÃ o East Road Section 5 in Taipei, those in Taiwan can finally get a dose of UNIQLO without needing a plane ride as transportation.
