As the final preparations go underway for the new store for Japanese brand Uniqlo in Paris we get to see an inside look at it’s new home venue. Set to be named Paris Opera Store, a reference to the historical Palais Garnier (or commonly known as Paris Opera House) across the street, architect Masamichi Katayama and his firm Wonderwall will completely revamp the interior into a multi-level store, complete with a grand staircase and skylight. Measured at 23,000 square-feet, the store will be one of the largest existing Uniqlo stores. Plans for opening are to coincide with the global launch of new Jil Sander for Uniqlo on the 1st of October 2009.
