Shinsoukaiten, Uniqlo! A bigger Uniqlo reopens in Davao

Uniqlo reopens with an expanded retail floor area and bigger inventory. Hello again, Uniqlo!

“This is a Uniqlo concept store. We doubled the floor area to more than 1,400 square meters from the first store we opened in 2017. It will have 500 designs on display, from the previous 300,” said UNIQLO PH’s COO Masayoshi Nakamura as he walked me around the store before it officially reopened its doors to a private shopping event, two days before the public opening.

Earlier in the day, before the private VIP shopping event, stylist Bea Constantino and Uniqlo image model Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach co-hosted a styling session at the mall’s atrium.

Uniqlo is known for its LifeWear, the brand’s innovative approach to design. Its aesthetics is rooted on Japanese values of simplicity, quality and longevity, which allows and encourages an individual to create a personal style according to one’s needs. While everyone needs evolve, so does Uniqlo’s designs. “It’s simple apparel with not-so-simple purpose: to make your life better.”

Yes, the basic and timeless pieces I have acquired made my better in a big way. Perhaps I am not alone in saying, “Don’t be surprised how much of the brand’s pieces occupy my closet.” I am not about to stop acquiring for some new ones.
