Uniqlo in the spring will open an 8,000-square-foot unit at the Mall at Bay Plaza, its first store in the Bronx. Since opening its inaugural U.S. store in 2006 in SoHo, the Japanese retailer has unveiled locations on Fifth Avenue and Broadway, and has been operating a pop-up shop in Times Square. There are also stores in Brooklyn and Queens. A unit at the Staten Island Mall was shuttered in 2016.
The retailer’s Bronx store will feature Life Wear for men, women and kids, and the brand’s products made with innovative fabric technologies such as Ultra Light Down and Airism, which has quick-drying and anti-odor properties. The store will also sell jeans made from authentic Japanese Kaihara denim, premium French linen shirts, and other essentials.
The first retrospective of Dior in the U.S. has landed at the Denver Art Museum — and though the exhibition is a continuation of the 70th-anniversary display that bowed in Paris in 2017, “Christian Dior, Couturier du Rêve,” the DAM show offers an entirely new look at the legacy of the house, and its relationship to the world, writes @leighen .

Norwegian musician Anna of the North (a.k.a. Anna Lotterud ) has had a rapid rise in the U.S., thanks to her song “Lovers” which was included in this summer’s Netflix hit “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before.” Next up, a show at Terminal 5. “I’ve never actually done promo or anything in the U.S. before so it’ll be interesting to see,” she tells @leighen . “Because of the Internet I’ve always had American listeners but never been here [playing music].” 📸: @jilliansollazzo #wwdeye
