I’m Uniqlo’s biggest advocate, so of course, to me, it’s Cool!
My first taste of Uniqlo was after being gifted with some camisoles by a friend, from Japan, over 10 years ago. I still wear them today, and they’re still in amazing shape. Not stretched, nor faded nor even worn, after being washed multiple times. They’re just as comfortable today as when I first got them. When I first visited a store, I was like a kid in Disneyland. So much to see! So affordable!
When Uniqlo first opened here, I was thrilled!
Uniqlo circular skirt – it’s midi-length, flare, and importantly, has pockets!
And then the aunties discovered it – Aunties always discover the stores with the good deals! I should know, coz I’m happy to be one! 😀 At one time, every time I mentioned Uniqlo, I’d get this “Oh my Mum/Aunt shops there all the time so I don’t!” It didn’t stop me – how else has my wardrobe become almost 90% from Uniqlo? – but I used to wonder if I was just being quite aunty in my dressing. Not trendy at all, me!
But in the 7 years or so that Uniqlo has been here, I’ve noticed that it seems to be more “cool” today, with more younger people shopping in it, than “aunty”. And it’s not just attributed to their Airism collection either! LOL! 😀
