UNIQLO, one of Japan’s most popular clothing manufacturers, has made the Soho neighborhood home to its global flagship store and largest retail location. The brand, reminiscent of the Gap and J. Crew, focuses on providing shoppers with fashionable pieces made of quality materials (including cashmere and wool) at affordable prices. Pieces from UNIQLO’s men’s and women’s lines are simple, yet functional and are meant to be easily integrated into customer’s existing wardrobes and styles. The store itself promotes an enjoyable shopping experience; items are neatly folded and color-coded, so browsing is stress-free.
