TOKYO—Fast Retailing said Wednesday that it will open its first Uniqlo store in Sweden this fall. The store, located adjacent to the popular park King’s Garden in central Stockholm, will measure 17,000 square feet across four floors.
The first Swedish outpost of the Japanese fast-fashion brand will carry men’s, women’s, and children’s clothes, centered around its LifeWear concept of everyday basics. It will be located in the building known as Sweden House, designed by Sven Gottfried Markelius and completed in 1969. The store will feature elements from the original architecture.

In honor of Rihanna’s 30th birthday, we took a look back at an interview with the Barbados-native when she was just 18 years old. Here, she talked about her second album, “A Girl Like Me” in 2006. “I want to be me. I want people to fall in love with who Rihanna is, and that’s why I want the album to be about me so people can really find out who this girl Rihanna is, because they only know the ‘Pon de Replay’ girl.” Fast forward 12 years, and she’s released six more albums and has become a powerhouse in both the fashion and music industries. Happy birthday, @badgalriri 🎈(📷: Pavel Antonov) #wwdarchive
