Let’s just call today the day of Major Retail Announcements: Word on the street is that Japanese fast-fashion retailer Uniqlo is opening up a location in the King of Prussia mall in spring/summer of this year. (This comes on the heels of our breathless-with-excitement announcement that it’s also coming to the Art Institute Building this spring.) Let’s celebrate with a list! Here, the top five reasons we’re excited about Uniqlo’s double-opening in the Philly area.
1. These down puffer coats. Be Well Philly editor Emily Leaman bought one and raves about it every single day. “It is shockingly thin and shockingly warm,” she says. I’ve felt it: It’s the softest thing ever.
2. These cashmere hooded sweaters. The most perfect weekend loungewear ever.
3. Adorable button-downs like this one. And I don’t even like button-downs.
4. This! Squee.
5. Novak Djokovic. Since he is the brand’s ambassador, perhaps they’ll get him to come in for the grand opening! (And then maybe he’ll bring Roger Federer along, and the whole city will be imbued with tennis hotness.)
