The Japanese retailer UNIQLO opened the doors of its first store in The Hague and second store in The Netherlands today at 10:00am. UNIQLO announces that it is proud to be able to offer LifeWear to the residents and visitors of this dynamic city.  

For the opening of the UNIQLO Grote Marktstraat store, the retailer partnered with various local talents in order to showcase their work. As part of this, two fashion students of the ROC Mondriaan school joined an upcycling project for which they created two entirely new designs using items of the UNIQLO Recycle program. The creations are on display in one of the windows of the UNIQLO Grote Marktstraat store for the month of October. In addition, a Limited Edition Eco Tote Bag has been created incorporating a unique design by local illustrator Wies van der Wal. The Tote Bag is available to purchase at UNIQLO Grote Marktstraat at a price of €1,90.  

On the first floor of the UNIQLO Grote Marktstraat store, a seating area has been set up in collaboration with Studio Perspective, who promote Dutch Design furniture items which are all locally produced in a sustainable and socially responsible manner.   

Honoring The Hague, known for being one of the greenest cities of the Netherlands, a real garden has been recreated at the heart of the UNIQLO Grote Marktstraat store. Inspired by the traditional Japanese Garden at Park Clingendael, the garden incorporates true Japanese elements such as bonsai trees and green moss.
