Japanese store UNIQLO fills an entire corner of the mall with tables of meticulously folded polo shirts in every colour of the rainbow and rows of normcore crew necks and cardigans.
For the launch of the brand’s two new Sydney stores this year (see also UNIQLO in MidCity), the low-cost basics brand employed Aussie ambassadors including singer-songwriter Gossling, fashion blogger Margaret Zhang, Puberty Blues actor Claudia Karvan and Bondi lifeguard Hoppo to model everything from 100 per cent linen shirts to jersey jackets in the store’s classic cuts.
The Macquarie Centre store also stocks limited-run collections from guest designers like Vera Bradley, Sprz NY inspired by MoMA collections – including Andy Warhol designs – and Scandinavian designer Linda Larson, who is popular in Japan for her childlike animal prints.
