It’s taken its time, but popular Japanese clothing retailer Uniqlo has announced its first-ever South Australian store will open next year.

Due to be unveiled in late 2022 in the Myer Centre in the city, the brand’s first Adelaide shop will span around 1000 square metres – and the full line-up of Lifewear apparel for adults and kids will be lining its meticulously colour-coordinated shelves.

You can also expect seasonal collaborations with designers such as JW Anderson, Christophe Lemaire and Jil Sander as well as its UT (Uniqlo graphic T-shirt) range.

Uniqlo has earned a global reputation for affordable fashion staples. Its first Australian store opened in 2014 in Melbourne, followed by 24 more stores across Victoria, New South Wales, Western Australia and Queensland.

Uniqlo Myer Centre Adelaide will be the retailer’s 26th store in Australia.
