Uniqlo will open its Wonderwall-designed New York flaghip on the city's venerable Fifth Avenue tomorrow. With 50,000 square feet of display space, it will be the avenue's largest single retailer, as well as Uniqlo's largest global flagship. Hot on its heels, the retailer will open its second largest outlet, just one week later in Manhattan's Herald Square, also designed by Wonderwall. In advance of the opening, Record took a tour with Masamichi Katayama, founder of Tokyo-based design firm Wonderwall.
