The idea behind a poll on 3 “same same yet different” fashion brands came from a street interview that Miss Glitzy accepted outside the new Uniqlo Ginza store.

Miss Glitzy was in Tokyo for a holiday and happened to pass by the new Uniqlo store opening at Ginza. There was a lot of fanfare as staff were giving away Uniqlo balloons and there were opening specials! Miss Glitzy was also one of the early Singaporean birds to have caugh a glimpse of the new +J collection.


Anyway, there was a group of production crew standing outside the new store and sloppy Glitzy definitely looked like a foreigner amongst all the well-dressed Japanese patrons. The crew requested for a short street interview which Miss Glitzy gladly accepted.


The host asked Miss Glitzy some questions on she knew about Uniqlo and her views towards the new Ginza store. Here is an interesting excerpt of the not-so-short street interview:

Q: What other Japanese fashion brands have you heard of?
A: Errr, Swimmer! (The crew got a bit shocked.. ) Kawaii kawaii Swimmer! (The host and crew finally understood that Miss Glitzy was referring to this)

But Swimmer isn’t really a fashion brand..

A: (Pondered for a very long time..) Oh! BEAMS! (The host, translator and crew were beaming.)

The host even asked Glitzy how she knew of the word “Kawaii”..

After Miss Glitzy chatted a bit on Kawaii , the host fished out a little board with 3 rows and columns. The names on the 3 rows said “Uniqlo”, “GAP” and “H&M”. The 2 columns stated “Japanese” and “Foreigners”. On the foreigners section, there were a handful of green little stickers stuck on the brand Uniqlo.

Q: Can you choose your favourite brand out of the 3?
A: (Glitzy chose H&M). I like H&M because I’m of a bigger build, so their sizes flatter me better. In addition, H&M has more designs for work while Uniqlo is slightly more casual.


The interview ended well but Miss Glitzy wondered if the crew was upset by Glitzy’s forthrightness. She was the first person to pick a non-Uniqlo brand. One wonders if the foreigners that they had interviewed were too polite.
