Uniqlo, the iconic Japanese clothing marque, has opened its first Bali store at Mal Bali Galeria, marking the brand’s 20th store in Indonesia since its arrival in 2013.
Catering to men, women and children, Uniqlo is located on the second floor in a 2,000 square meter space and will be one of only two Uniqlo outlets offering the brand’s Hawaii Collection in Indonesia.
Only available in Bali and at the Grand Indonesia mall in Jakarta, the Hawaii Collection consists of shirts for men, a bra dress for women, and Hawai’i shirts and jersey dresses for kids. The collection is inspired by kimonos made in Hawaii by Japanese immigrants using contemporary designs of traditional motifs.
“Simplicity, quality, and longevity are the cores behind our LifeWear products, and we sincerely hope that our products will fit nicely with the lifestyle of the people in Bali,” said Naoki Kamogawa, President Director of Uniqlo Indonesia during the store’s opening ceremony.
First customers on the opening day were treated to a performance of Taiko, a traditional style drum from Okinawa, by students from Taiko Club of Junior Japan in Bali. The first 100 customers were also treated to free coffee from Hungry Bird Coffee Roasters.
As part of the opening celebrations, Uniqlo has teamed up with several other local brand such as Alter Ego, Amplitude, Eat Well, Hungry Bird Coffee Roasters and Karakter Kopi until November 11, offering customers the chance to win Uniqlo’s LifeWear products and merchandise, gift vouchers, coffee vouchers, and other prizes with the Uniqlo Claw Machines.
