Uniqlo is planning to host a special exhibition in London during the city’s fashion week next month. The large-scale immersive, experiential event will showcase LifeWear via art, science and craftsmanship.
A boycott on Japanese goods in South Korea has had an impact on casual clothing chain Uniqlo’s sales in the country, highlighting the widening economic hit from a diplomatic row over Tokyo’s wartime role.
