Update: Uniqlo Pushes Back Opening Date

At least it's just a couple weeks?

By Amanda Zurita September 24, 2015

This just in from Uniqlo headquarters:

"Due to construction, the grand opening of Uniqlo at Bellevue Square will be delayed until Friday, November 6."

Womp wah...The original date was set to be Friday, October 16, so it's only a three-week push back. On the plus side, the Seahawks have a off week that weekend, so perhaps our guy Kearse will make an appearance at the opening party?

It also gives us time to obsess over the Lemaire x Uniqlo collaboration coming out on October 2. I'll take every piece, thankyouverymuch. Cropped sweater. Cashmere turtleneck. Asymmetrical cape! Swoon.

Granted, it seems unlikely that this collection won't be sold out before the Bellevue store opens in November, so I'd suggest shopping online (like at midnight when it launches) to snag your favorite piece.

As ever, stay tuned as we keep up on on the Uniqlo latest. It is happening people. Really. Someday.
