UNDERCOVER FOR UNIQLO’S FALL/WINTER ‘12 “UU” FINAL CAMPAIGN
Designer Jun Takahashi was able to bring his UNDERCOVER brand to a much lower pricepoint by collaborating with massive retailer Uniqlo, so it only makes sense that they would do one more collection!
Drawing on Takahashi’s post-modern UNDERCOVER design tendencies, this Uniqlo collaboration (featuring insane images of giant insects playing instruments) will feature a full range of contemporary garments utilizing and mixing top-notch Uniqlo performance technology and fabrics; the pieces will feature Heat Tech and Ultra Light Down, among other signature Uniqlo innovations. We’re into it!
FIRST LOOK: UNIQLO’S NEW FLAGSHIP STORE
I walked by this almost everyday while in NYC and was bummed that it wasn’t open in time for NYFW S/S 2012! The Japanese apparel retailer this week is opening a three-story, 89,000-square-foot flagship store on the corner of 5th Avenue and 53rd St. in Manhattan. The chain, which opened its first U.S. store in lower Manhattan in 2006, last year signed a $300 million, 15-year lease for the space, formerly the location of a Brooks Brothers store. It was reported to be the most expensive retail lease in New York’s history. Could UNIQLO become the next great American retailer? See those $9.90 jeans?! With prices like those, I sure hope so!
