UNIQLO has just opened the doors to one of its biggest flagships in Japan. Located in the Ginza district, the UNIQLO TOKYO location is a four-floor retail space designed by Herzog & de Meuron. Housed in the Marronnier Gate building, the retail space was originally built in 1984 to act as one of Ginza’s Paris-inspired department stores.
The entire building was gutted and removed of the excess so that shoppers and pedestrians can experience more spatial connection with each level of product. Each floor is also skeletonized with the removal of large concrete slabs, exposing concrete and steel beams for a raw and open atmosphere. The flagship currently houses men’s/women’s on the first floor, followed by women’s on the second, more men’s on the third, and finally a kids/UT/baby section on the fourth. There is also an exhibition space for collaborations, an “Ambassador Corner” for UNIQLO ambassadors like Roger Federer and Kei Nishikori, and a section exclusively for AIRism products.
Those in Tokyo can head over to UNIQLO TOKYO in Ginza where it is currently open from 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Check with the local office as opening hours are set to change to coincide with COVID-19 precautionary measures.
