As reported by Freshness earlier, ahead of its Taipei flagship’s opening, its 916th store to be exact. Japan’s retail brand, UNIQLO, created a dedicated website to bolster its tenets for success, from the valued “Created In Japan” quality (careful in it’s stipulation since the clothes are made in China mostly) to the rainbow assortment of colors available. Designed by interactive firm THA and Yugo Nagamura, the cheerily music and its Tetris-esque rendering makes it all the more palpable despite the abysmal retail scene in Taiwan. Hopefully, the new 150,000 square foot space designed by Japan’s WONDERWALL and the new mall to house it, Uni Hankyu Mall, will reverse the trend.
Set to open this Fall along with Taiwan’s first W Hotel, the new UNIQLO Taipei is located at No. 8 ZhÅng XiÃ o East Road Section 5 in the trendy neighborhood of Xin-Yi. For more information, log onto the new website for details.
