Melbourne – welcome to the Japanese kingdom of high quality, low cost basics. Australia's first UNIQLO has spread its super-comfortable 'Life Wear' range across approximately 3,000 square metres in the heart of Melbourne's CBD, taking up three floors. Think non-branded jeans, cashmere jumpers, vests and T-shirts, all presented in meticulously-folded rows. The effect is like an endless display of paint swatches, and it's easy to get lost in the mix-and-match vibe of the collection. Well-trained staff are always helpful, friendly and ready to help you put together your own UNIQLO look. The clothes might be plain, but they fit together perfectly, and they're incredibly comfortable. Whatever your stance on puffy jackets, we're about to see a lot more of them.
