MUJI INVADES P.I.


What is MUJI?


Muji is derived from its Japanese Name "Mujirushi Ryohin", which means "no label quality goods". Launched in Japan in 1980, MUJI captured the spirit of the 90s with its no label, valued-led, less is more concept. 

Japan's superstore MUJI finally opened its door here at Bonifacio High Street in Taguig last October. Fashionistas and shopaholics alike flocked the store on its opening day.

Anyway, I was very fortunate to get invited to the press/media launch that was held during the day. There were actually two - one for the media and the other one for VIPs. How crazy right? Here's a look at the most anticipated store opening here in Manila since Forever 21.
