Company: Fast Retailing Co Ltd

Location: Ambience Mall, Vasant Kunj, New Delhi

Area: 35,000 sq ft

Collections from global collaboration includes 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.

Store design | Interiors & VM | Fixtures: Spread over three floors, the store has 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.

The store also features large mural on all three walls facing inside the shopping mall 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.

In-house experience: When entering the store from the ground floor, customers are greeted by introduction to the lifewear concept with a showcase featuring the seasonal styles. The store also carries the UT (Uniqlo T-shirt) line, which transforms T-shirts into canvases of art. With the UTme! service customers can create personalised T-shirts with their own designs or with a range of Uniqlo stamps, including designs featuring Uniqlo brand ambassador Roger Federer.

About the company: Uniqlo is a leading Japanese apparel brand casualwear designer, manufacturer and retailer for men, women and kids. The company is a wholly owned subsidiary of Fast Retailing Co Ltd. The company operates in Japan and several other countries.
