Uniqlo’s next collab will be with Jil Sander, in a reprise of a link-up with the fashion legend which first began 11 years ago - and a natural fit between the Queen of Less and the no pain at the cash register retailer.
The weather played less of a part than usual in sales at Fast Retailing’s Uniqlo chain during July with the company saying on Tuesday that its Japanese sales (including online) rose 4.7% year-on-year during the month.
Japanese clothing chain Uniqlo is likely to report strong same-store sales for June, taking the edge off a profit plunge for owner Fast Retailing due to store closures and weak demand amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Zara, H&M and Gap may be slowly reopening their stores but the coronavirus epidemic has had a devastating financial impact on the fast fashion sector, which needs a radical overhaul if it is to recover, experts say.
While no major fashion firms have been spared, Japan's Fast Retailing, owner of the Uniqlo brand and not far behind the world's No. 2 H&M in sales, looks well placed to cope with the crisis better than rivals.
Fast Retailing’s Uniqlo will open an expanded Uniqlo Tokyo on June 19 in the key Ginza shopping district. The company has renovated its store in the Marronnier Gate Ginza 2 building as the area is redeveloped.
