Rajo goes to BENCH

Just before visiting Uniqlo, we made a quick stop at BENCH Mall of Asia to take a look at Rajo Laurel’s new scents and jeans line. At first the guard stopped us from taking pics, until she realized Rajo is actually part of the BENCH family.

First look: Uniqlo at Mall of Asia

I may have first heard of Uniqlo from my brother who discovered it in London and now flies often to Japan for work. From him I got to know this Japanese fast fashion brand that’s known for affordable basics for men, women, teens and kids—for home, work, play and exercise.
Uniqlo is also known for collaborating with other iconic brands—anywhere from Walt Disney and Hello Kitty to Laura Ashley, Lulu Guiness—all the way to Jil Sander and Undercover.
In Ginza, Tokyo, it’s a great place to buy pasalubong because of its price points.

UNIQLO, Ginza

I’ve been to Uniqlo in Singapore’s Somerset and ION Orchard malls—the latter has two levels and is always busy.
I’ve been to the one in Bangkok, which was great because it was spacious and no longer crowded. That’s where I bought the comfiest lounging pants I use everyday.
No matter what country, there’s never enough time for Uniqlo, because of its size and madness. I’m always stressed and in a hurry to shop when I’m there. But not anymore when it opens at Mall of Asia this June 15, 2012.

Uniqlo at MOA

This afternoon, I had the pleasure of going through the aisles and looking at everything it has to offer without the mad crowd and confusion of what to buy.
I was amazed to see merchandise with Philippine prices—so affordable! On its opening week, many items will be marked down, as jeans go for an unreal price of Php 590. I’m already scared of the pandemonium this is going to cause.
Not to worry, the 1,550-square-meter store has 15 cash registers ready for the masses, plus 14 fitting rooms.
What I don’t like about Uniqlo is they are very strict about the four-piece maximum in the fitting room. And you know me, I always come with an armload of stuff.

Uniqlo at Central World

Take a look at what’s in store when Uniqlo opens in Manila this Friday.
Our group arrived before 2 PM at Mall of Asia this afternoon. You’ll find Uniqlo at the 2nd level of the Main Mall where Kultura and Marrionaud used to be.
