This weekend, Uniqlo is participating in Japan Week at its Fifth Avenue flagship. Bring your appetite, because the event includes treats from Momofuku Milk Bar, Brushstroke, and Kyotofu, as well as traditional Japanese green tea from Sugimoto Americafor to wash it all down. The designated snack times will be from 4pm—6pm today (Momofuku) , and 2pm—4pm on Saturday and Sunday (Brushstroke and Kyotofu, respectively).
In addition to that, Uniqlo has set up a specially designed Japan room, which will feature key items from the Designer Invitation Project, as well as UT collaborations with Hello Kitty and One Piece and, naturally, their made-in-Japan denim. Just make sure you don't get any cookie crumbs on the clothes.
