2018 Fall/Winter

Sweden

UNIQLO Stockholm




On 24th August 2018, UNIQLO opened its first store in Sweden, located in the heart of Stockholm adjacent to Kungsträdgården, one of the most historical and popular areas of the city. The store occupies the building known as Sweden House (Sverigehuset), which was designed by Stockholm-born Sven Gottfried Markelius, one of the most important Swedish modernist architects.

2018 also marked the 150th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Sweden and Japan. As a brand with deep respect and appreciation for local culture, a special collaboration with Lotta Kühlhorn, a local Swedish graphic designer and illustrator, adorned the campaign to celebrate the store opening on this significant year.

Kühlhorn‘s iconic style of collage included illustrations featuring UNIQLO’s products, elements from Kungsträdgården, and Sweden House itself, all produced in three colourways.

Shown here are some of the designs created for the store opening campaign: sensu (folding fan) handed out to all the customers on the first day, the invitation to the opening reception (a furoshiki-style invitation inside a origami-style envelope), cashmere gift box set, exclusive shopping bags, and masu sake cups for the reception party.

LifeWear 2017 S/S Press Preview


UNIQLO used to hold a Global Press Preview twice a year, where they invite special guests to showcase their upcoming collection for the next season.

The new venue in Shibuya was the critical message to communicate to the guests, resulting in the design being based on a graphical interpretation of the streets of Shibuya.

In addition, the invitation was made in the style of a ‘furoshiki’, a traditional gift-wrapping cloth in Japanese custom, to showcase the DNA of the brand to the international guests.

Marketing Camapaign


Three seasons in, 2016 Fall/Winter was the official launch for countries outside of the ASEAN region.
The concept for the campaign was to showcase Tajima in a personal way. The visuals were taken in her actual home and neighbourhood in Upstate New York, and casted one of her oldest friends in the campaign.

As it was the first time to launch in Japan, a press event was held in the UNIQLO Ginza store, and received media attention both online and offline.
