Muji in New York

Finally, Muji is taking a serious retail step in the US — their MoMA Design Store corner doesn’t really count — with the opening of two stores in New York later this year.

Muji are planning to open two new stores in NYC this year. The brand that has become synonymous in Europe for brilliantly simple Japanese design will open two outlets in the U.S. between July and December, stocking a full range of the company’s clothing, stationery and household products. Plans for the stores are not expected to be officially announced by February, so information is currently very limited. (fashion.psfk)
