UNIQLO sets up short-term shop in Galeries Lafayette

UNIQLO is to set up shop in one of Europe’s biggest department stores Galeries Lafayette. The outlets will be open for a limited period and, as with our concept shop in La Defense opened last December, we will be looking to boost brand visibility and send a message from UNIQLO to highly fashion conscious Parisians.

There will be two UNIQLO outlets on the 1st floor and in the basement. Garment displays will include our “manga” T-shirt range, one of best-known Japanese words around the world these days, and denim items. We will also offer our “Traditional Corporation series” T-shirts with traditional Japanese prints designed in collaboration with traditional Japanese firms, and T-shirts depicting the “kojien” or definitive Japanese dictionary. The novel store design incorporates genuine comic strips. The interior will display an abundant “manga” theme from March 20, a fresh version of our T-shirt flagship UT STORE HARAJUKU in Japan. The bold store design uses the UNIQLO brand color red along with some impressive manga pages. Add to this, the rows of unique UT bottle packaging, and the stores are bound to grab people’s attention within the Galeries Lafayette store.

These T-shirts are also on sale in our La Defense store, our first French store opened last December in Le Quatre Temps shopping mall in the Parisian suburb of La Defense.
