Japanese-based retailer Uniqlo has recently updated its Soho store paying homage to manga with a line of manga-inspired t-shirts and displays to match. The displays include manga characters on the windows, manga covered floors and fixtures and a rotating t-shirt carousel. It looks pretty cool and I enjoy it when retailers really commit to a story and follow through in the merchandising. All the little details count. The manga-inspired shirts are a nice twist on a lot of the comic-inspired stuff we’re seeing out there and gives you a chance to wear what you read.
