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.

H&M announces exclusive Margiela collab for AW 2012

While H&M announces its collaboration with Maison Martin Margiela to be released five months from now, this early some of us are already thinking which country is best to fly to where the lines won’t be so crazy.

ANNOUNCEMENT_FINAL

H&M is proud to announce a collaboration with one of the most important brands of the past three decades, Maison Martin Margiela.
A cult label adored by fashion insiders, French house Maison Martin Margiela has long influenced the mainstream with its radical ideas and experiments with clothing.
The collaboration will immerse H&M in the playful world of Maison Martin Margiela, giving fashion lovers around the world the chance to wear pieces from this mysterious brand.
The collection for both women and men will be available from November 15, 2012 in around 230 H&M stores worldwide, as well as online.

“We are very happy to present Maison Martin Margiela pieces with H&M, offering a new interpretation of our vision. The democracy of our fashion has always been at the centre of our creativity, and the collaboration with H&M allows us to push this instinct further. We will bring together the contrasting universes of the two houses in ways that will surprise all.” — Maison Martin Margiela

The Blouse Blanche

“Maison Martin Margiela is one of the most important and influential fashion houses of the past three decades. I am so excited by this collaboration which will give fashion lovers around the world the chance to wear special pieces by Maison Martin Margiela. This collaboration will be a great and memorable fashion moment,” says Margareta van den Bosch, H&M’s creative advisor.

Maison Martin Margiela

Maison Martin Margiela is a fashion house which has always followed its own path, often outside the conventional fashion framework.
The Maison believes in the absolute importance of the collaborative nature of its team, rather than the individual, where its ideals are founded in the desire for concept and creativity.
Constantly questioning the norms of fashion and presenting its pieces through the technique of deconstruction and transformation, the collections reinvent volumes, modify shapes, change the original use and movement of garments and derail classic notions of fashion.
Maison Martin Margiela is the latest house to collaborate with H&M on an exclusive designer collaboration, following the likes of Versace, Lanvin, Karl Lagerfeld, Stella McCartney, Comme des Garçons and, most recently, Marni. Maison
Martin Margiela’s collaboration with H&M will be fully in the spirit of the Maison, creating a unique fashion experience when the collection reaches stores worldwide this November.
