—MIDTOWN—The ginormous Uniqlo Fifth Avenue flagship finally has a target opening time frame of Fall 2011, giving fast-fashionistas and jeggings aficionados a light at the end of the tunnel. To tide everyone over until then, Uniqlo has given the flagship's ginormous plywood wallscape an updated look. The new design features the upcoming Uniqlo "Made for All" ad campaign that will launch in the fall—simultaneously with the much-anticipated flagship opening. [Racked Wire; Previously]
