News about Uniqlo heading to San Francisco has actually been around since last year, but continues to make the headline. Uniqlo, or what some call the “Japanese Gap”, is in full expansion mode. A sportswear line designed by Nicola Formichetti (Mugler designer & Lady Gaga’s stylist) will accompany Uniqlo, hitting the boutiques, and open three huge stores in October (two in Manhattan, one in London). The company’s planned openings besides the one in San Francisco, include flagships in Chicago & Los Angeles, and smaller shops in New York, New Jersey, & Connecticut, plus hundreds of stores internationally. No date yet when Uniqlo will open in San Francisco, so stay tune folks!
