UNIQLO to expand into Italy
Japanese clothing brand UNIQLO has unveiled plans to launch into the Italian market next year.
The company will open its first store in the country in Milan next autumn.
Situated in Piazza Cordusio, the shop will be in the heart of the city and be within walking distance of Piazza del Duomo. The new store will offer the brand's clothing for men, women and children over three levels.
Tadashi Yanai, UNIQLO founder and chairman and president and chief executive of Fast Retailing, said: "We are extremely honoured and proud to be launching in Italy in 2019. Milan is one of the world's most important and well-respected fashion capitals, enjoying a long standing culture of craftsmanship as well as sophisticated and elegant design. We hope that the Milanese public and international visitors will embrace UNIQLO and make it theirs.”
Following the brand’s launch in the Netherlands in September this year and plans to open in Denmark in spring 2019, Italy will become UNIQLO's 10th market in Europe. UNIQLO also has a European presence in the UK, Russia, France, Germany, Belgium, Spain and Sweden.
