Make Time for MUJI

Or shall I say Make Room, since MUJI is now occupying that space on Bonifacio High Street, when it  opens this month!

Typical MUJI interior in Japan & HK

In case you haven't heard of MUJI, it just happens to be one of my favorite places to browse and shop at! I first came across MUJI back in the 1990s in London, incidentally, their first overseas outpost. Back in NYC (Boohoohoo, I miss you already! I'll be visiting as often as I can, promise!),   I often made pit stops at their 40th Street flagship, and the one on Broadway, even if I had no intentions of buying anything. It was also my go to place for uniquely Asian things - like a tabo (hahaha!) and mini washbasin! And back when I was pregnant with Berry, that's where I bought some of my maternity clothes!

I just loved MUJI's loose, drapey, relaxed and very Japanese aesthetic, and the fact that I could wear their clothes up until my final trimester!

Take note, these weren't meant to be maternity clothes, but they worked! And now, I can still wear their tops and shirtdresses! Sulit!

MUJI is short for Mujirushi Ryohin—which translates to “no brand, quality products" and that's exactly what their merchandise is all about! Check out some of the pieces (out of 7,000 SKUs that their shops currently stock ) that you can look out for in MUJI Manila!

Oh yeah, I have to warn you though. Make sure you have tremendous self-control when you go inside the store. It's not uncommon for people to go in just to browse, and end up buying something they don't necessarily need but have to have - just because, once they step inside the store! It's that addicting and MUJI brings out the compulsive shopper in you! Trust me, it can be scary! Scary because you can't stop picking up stuff! But sigh, so much fun!

In the Philippines, Muji is exclusively distributed by Stores Specialists, Inc. (SSI) and is located at Bonifacio High Street, Taguig City.
