Its a shopping experience like none other … a huge store, a swanky yet sensible apparel collection with a universal and contemporary appeal as well as a price point that allows you to shop for more. UNIQLO’s brand new store that opened today with three huge floors of shopping at Ambience Mall , Vasant Kunj is going to be everyone’s fav store. Minister for textiles Smriti Irani was a special guest at the store’s launch.
Launched in this market for the first time, UNIQLO offers a new shopping experience to Delhi customers that showcases LifeWear, the company’s commitment to creating perfect clothing that meets the requirements of everyone’s daily lifestyles.
As Tadashi Yanai, UNIQLO Founder and Chairman, President & CEO of the Fast Retailing Group, said, “Fast Retailing has long wished to open stores in India in view of the tremendous potential of such a large nation. We began recruiting here at the end of last year, and have been impressed by the exceptional talent, ambition and diligence of the young people we encountered and welcomed aboard.”
UNIQLO Ambience Mall Vasant Kunj carries a full line up of LifeWear for men, women, kids and babies. This includes iconic UNIQLO products such as the innovative and functional Ultra-Light Down (ULD) and HEATTECH garments, as well as products featuring premium fabric like denim, cashmere, Extra Fine Merino, and more.
With a total retail space of 35,000 square feet, UNIQLO Ambience Mall Vasant Kunj woos customers with its stunning three-story high bay window façade. Interior designs vary by floor, moving from soothing elements with natural materials that integrate the Japanese and Indian aesthetic, to the high-energy LED ticker screen and stainless fixtures that convey a contemporary mood.
A large mural on all three walls facing inside the shopping mall captures the essence of daily life in the capital created by illustrator Dattaraj M. Naik, while local artist Johnson Kshetrimayum has worked with embroidery craftspeople to create an installation using UNIQLO lambswool. Both artworks are under the creative direction of Hanif Kureshi.
The Ground Floor, stocks a comprehensive introduction to the LifeWear concept with a showcase featuring the latest seasonal styles. Special partnerships are on display throughout the three floors, such as The Kurta Collection, UNIQLO’s first India collaboration with Delhi-based designer Rina Singh. Global collaboration lines include Ines de la Fressange and Hana Tajima, as well as the Uniqlo U collection created by the UNIQLO R&D Centre under Artistic Director Christophe Lemaire.
The store also stocks the UT (UNIQLO T-shirt) line, which transforms T-shirts into personalised canvases of art expressing the individuality and tastes of the wearer. UNIQLO has also launched the UNIQLO Ambience Mall Good Neighbourhood Guide, highlighting the hidden gems of local neighbourhoods.
