One thing that was on my list of things to do in New York was to shop at the only Uniqlo store in the United States. Uniqlo is a Japanese company known for clothing at reasonable prices. It has been compared to H&M and Topshop, but I think it is even better than its competitors. I think the quality is much better. I also think the design is much better. Uniqlo is a company that has expanded worldwide. I am a fan of Uniqlo’s aesthetics.
Uniqlo is known for collaborations with some well-known companies and designers. The graphic tees have images that are licensed to Uniqlo. The images include characters from anime, Disney, and other cartoons. Some collaborations are from a style standpoint. These t-shirts are very well made and I do like the graphics. I think they were chosen with a particular artistic style in mind. They are not just a t-shirt with a logo on it.
There is currently an Uniqlo store in SoHo in New York. Uniqlo is opening two more stores in New York in fall 2011: one on Fifth Avenue that will be a global flagship store and one on 34th street. There have been reports that Uniqlo may open many more stores in the U.S. by 2020. There has also been a report that San Francisco is on the list of cities for expansion. I really hope this happens because I would look forward to an Uniqlo store near me!
