Uniqlo opened its latest flagship store in Hong Kong on Fri 26 April, 10 am. Located at Lee Theatre Plaza, Causeway Bay (with one of its 2 entrances just diagonal from Time Square), this is peak Causeway Bay retail space. I was scheduled to fly from Hong Kong on Fri, but figured that I had some time in the morning and would be able to make a quick dash to the Uniqlo store.
This HK flagship store has a UT store in store, Uniqlo's second UT store in store after its first in Japan. With its T shirt gallery, and the the latest collection on sale (Uniqlo UT Grand Prix 2013 Global T shirt competition), it was difficult to limit T shirt buying to a few. I ended up picking several for family and friends too. I managed to score a David Bowie T shirt from Uniqlo UT Grand Prix 2013 for myself!

T shirts galore near the entrance
I also bought a lot of children's clothes for DD and various family kiddies.

Naturally, being the flagship store, I did expect Uniqlo Lee Theatre Plaza to get some collections ahead of everyone. But I did not expect so many collections to be ahead of Singapore and ahead of its other outlets in HK!
Collections available in Uniqlo flagship:
- Lulu Guiness (supposed to be in Singapore in May, already available in other HK outlets)
- Karen Walker children's collection KW2 (supposed to be in Singapore in mid May, did not see in other HK outlets).
- Global T shirt competition (did not see in other HK outlets)
- plumpynuts children collection (no word on when it will come to Singapore)
