Famed Japanese Brand UNIQLO Opens Shop at SM City Fairview!

Saturday, June 15, 2013

From the likes of CHINA, FRANCE, HONG KONG, INDONESIA, JAPAN, KOREA, MALAYSIA, RUSSIA, SINGAPORE, TAIWAN, THAILAND, UK and the US, UNIQLO has definitely made headway in launching new stores in the Philippines. With it's partnership with SM Retail since January 2012, they have created one of the most promising convergence of minds and retail power through Fast Retailing Philippines Inc. They have now put shop at the grand SM Fairview in the Novaliches district and this will surely delight shoppers from the North which the mall mostly caters to. 

I've been a fan of their fashionable, quality clothes since their arrival and now that it's quite near my area it'll surely be doubly fun to see what I could wear. I also hear they will have more branches nationwide!

One look at the store during their VIP/Celebrity induced opening had me gasping for my breath because this just looks like a mecca of all the greatest styles, colors and sizes that I have ever seen! The choices are unbelievable so I made myself ready for one heck of a shopping day! True enough, I had my eyes on some of the neatest stuff they have on the store.

The special opening price of 590 on most items had me wondering are they actually giving this away? How can something of this quality become so affordable? I did the next best thing and grabbed a basket, then tried on a couple of things.. I found very cute shirts, and comfy jeans too!

For ONE PIECE fans out there, this will surely make you giddy because they have different characters of the MANGA in their full glory. They are also available in very whimsical colors too! I wanted to have the yellow shirt but I found some other things I'll show you... get ready!

Who in the right mind doesn't like Mickey Mouse? Or maybe Donald Duck? I grew up with these characters and there's nothing like vintage cartoons to get me in the mood. I also saw some other great shirts beside these.

If you are into Japanese street fashion, these pieces are just the thing to take off the rack. It's a wonderful representation, and now that it's here in the Philippines, I wouldn't mind have this one as well! Fighting!

I grabbed one of these comfortable Easy Care Oxford Shirts because I needed it for work. It was light and got me so excited to try on a matching jacket right beside it. What makes it totally sold on me was the materials made for each piece.
It wasn't one of those boring things they wear in boardrooms that's too formal and too uptight. They had me at pink.

I also LOVED these classic jackets that I can pair with long sleeved printed shirts see above. I wanted something dressed up but not too formal and they've got me hooked on this look!

There were also some other prints available that would surely look good on men. If you are the adventurous type, try it on for a change. It'll surely get you want a more Japanese yuppie look at the sight of the florals, stripes and other color choices.

The AIRism section was really good. For ladies who want intimatewear that would be useful for all seasons, this is really one of the best collection. I'm sure some of the tops and those pajama looking pants in this section would run out in a couple of days. I hear people are hoarding it and I'm not surprised. It's one of the most comfortable materials I've ever seen actually.

For ladies, these Skinny Fit Tapered Pants would be a hit. Indulge yourself a pair or two if you drop by Uniqlo. You'll never regret it!

I am guilty of one thing... I hoarded some of the Straight Cut Pants because I find them quite comfortable and they got it altered to fit me perfectly. For Jeans that you buy 900 and up it's free so make sure you do that if you plan to buy some for your self. I had one style in different colors haha! So you might fancy to do the same in your size! :)

Don't worry about service because they've got a lot of their people standing by who can also give you suggestions if you ran out of ideas in what to wear. I simply asked if they had this on my size and they smiled back at me and said of course sir! Be prepared to also be greeted by them every time you turn a corner or transfer to another section of the store because they'll never fail to do that as courtesy to their consumers. They did that a couple of times while I was there =)

Shopping in UNIQLO definitely had me want to go back for more. Since this was a celebrity affair too, I saw some models and people you might know from showbiz!

It was a pleasure to see Carlo Aquino, Jen Rosendahl, Maria Isabelle Lopez, Janine Tugonon and my idol Gloc9 having fun shopping also at UNIQLO. I was shaking when I got the chance to be near Gloc9 haha. #FanboyMoment. 

Congratulations to UNIQLO on opening a branch in SM Fairview. Thank you for considering to bring more fashionable clothes and the best things in the world for Ladies, Gents and even kids! I will promise to shop at Uniqlo every month from hereon. You can count on that! :)

For those who want to shop, I suggest you go to their store now to avail of the opening discounts. You must buy a pair of jeans at least to feel how ecstatic I am about this store! It's LIFEWEAR!
