Uniqlo confirms August opening of first Swedish store

The popular fast fashion brand announced in January that it will be entering the Swedish market with a Stockholm branch, but remained coy about the details. Sweden's fashion fanatics reacted with excitement to the news that they would be getting the first Uniqlo store in the Nordics.

On Tuesday Uniqlo finally divulged the launch date of the shop, set to open doors at Hamngatan near the Kungsträdgården park on August 24th.

It will occupy the Sverigehuset building, built in the 1960s as the final project of modernist Swedish architect Sven Markelius, and the shop will “pay tribute to Markelius by exhibiting some chosen examples of his work” according to the company.

The opening will make Sweden only the seventh European country to boast a Uniqlo store.
