Global apparel retailer UNIQLO opens its first store in Luxembourg today, Thursday October 26th. The store is located in the heart of Luxembourg City on Grand Rue 22, a prominent shopping area in Ville-Haute. The opening marks the next phase of UNIQLO's growth across BENELUX, and becomes the brand's sixth store in the region.
"We are delighted to open our first UNIQLO store in Luxembourg, in the Ville-Haute quarter of Luxembourg City. We look forward to bringing our LifeWear concept to customers here, created from our Japanese values of simplicity, quality, and longevity, and designed to make people's lives better. We look forward to welcoming "frontaliers", local residents, and the many visitors to this dynamic and cosmopolitan city," said Kaman Leung, Chief Operating Officer of UNIQLO BENELUX.
Connecting Through the Culture and Art of Luxembourg
For the opening of its UNIQLO Grand-Rue store, UNIQLO has partnered with local creatives and institutions to showcase their work, as well as to connect with the local community.
As with partnerships between UNIQLO and major world institutions that make art accessible to everybody (MOMA-New York, Tate Modern-London, Louvre-Paris), UNIQLO Grand-Rue will also collaborate with Musée d'art moderne Grand-Duc Jean ("Mudam"), whose mission is to collect and conserve the most relevant contemporary art of our time, and make it accessible to all. Through this collaboration, UNIQLO customers will discover an exclusive, Mudam-curated reading area at the heart of the new store, where they are invited to take a quiet break from shopping. Curated from the opening by Mudam director, Bettina Steinbrügge, the reading area will be regularly updated with selections from Luxembourg artists and designers going forward.
Another notable collaboration featured in the store is with furniture designer Julie Conrad. Known for using recycled materials in her designs, Conrad combines functionality and aesthetics in her collections. For the UNIQLO Grand-Rue store, she designed the reading area and also a collection Loom Chairs located in the store. The Loom Chairs have a simple wooden frame and textile seat, developed in collaboration with local carpenter Norbert Brakonier. Each seat is woven from recycled clothing brought in by customers under the RE.UNIQLO initiative.
In addition, local illustrator, Lynn Cosyn, known for her colorful, imaginary world of whimsical, poetic characters has created an exclusive tote bag that will be offered to the first 100 customers upon opening.
Opening with RE.UNIQLO STUDIO
UNIQLO Grand Rue will open with RE.UNIQLO Studio, a dedicated space for pursuing a new future for clothes. The RE.UNIQLO Studio will offer services for customers to recycle, repair, and remake their favorite UNIQLO LifeWear items so that they can keep wearing and loving them for longer.
To date, UNIQLO has opened RE.UNIQLO Studios across the majority of markets in Europe, including the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Denmark. RE.UNIQLO Studios are also found in UNIQLO stores around the globe including the United States, Japan and Singapore.
