We take a look inside Muji's first Sydney store
Japanese retailer Muji are masters of a tidy space. Whether you’re looking for a place to stack runaway scissors or lock down loose hair ties, Muji has storage solutions for things you didn’t know you needed. The minimalistic brand launched its first Sydney store in May with an expansive range of clothing and homewares. You’ll find cashmere sweaters in pastel colours, wool turtle necks, touchscreen gloves and corduroy skirts. Plus, so much flannel.
Prices range from $24.95 for simple styles and travel items, like a soft neck cushion – the kind you find at airports, except these are grey scale and somewhat chic – to over $100 for luxury fabrics. It’s normcore on a mass-production scale.
The large store in the Galeries also stocks kids’ clothing, toys and canvas tote bags that you can customise with fun stamps. There are shelves and shelves of crockery, Japanese teapots and willow tea trays. Styled zones display organic cotton bedding, stacks of rice bowls and skincare containers. It has everything you need for a perfectly ordered and understated lifestyle. We challenge you to take a look and walk away without buying a new notepad.
