You will also notice a couple of murals on the first level of the store in line with Uniqlo's campaign "Our Future Is Here." Uniqlo Manila tapped Plus63 Design Group to create artworks that show the vibrancy of diversity of everyday life in the country. There's even a headturning display with masks designed and styled by Filipino contemporary artist Leeroy New and Shun Watanabe respectively.
