Leading Japanese apparel company UNIQLO celebrate their arrival in Denmark this month by launching an new ‘Always at Home’ campaign, celebrating the Scandinavian balance of simplicity and innovation. To help them celebrate, UNIQLO invited a group of ambassadors to Copenhagen to showcase the brand and talk about their lifestyles. Coming from the worlds of literature, music, gastronomy, art and design, the ambassadors share UNIQLO’s outlook and Copenhagen’s entrepreneurial spirit.

“These ambassadors speak to each aspect of ‘LifeWear’,” say UNIQLO, “quality apparel for all occasions. It’s clothing suited for Copenhagen; a city that makes everyone feel comfortable and confident.”
Radio DJ and producer Nicholas Kjær Kawamura is UNIQLO’s most recognisable new ambassador, having presented shows on the Danish counterpart of BBC R1: DR P3. He’s joined by ceramist Asta Fjeldhagen, interior designer Josephine Akvama Hoffmeyer, restauranteur Frederik Bille Brahe and, fittingly, Denmark’s leading Japanese translator Mette Holm, who for years worked closely with celebrated author Haruki Murakami, a relationship that was brought to life in the 2017 documentary film Dreaming Murakami. Every ambassador is a leading entrepreneur in their field, embodying the joint Danish-Japanese sensibility of minimalism and innovation.

The shared Japanese and Danish values of minimalism, say UNIQLO, is what brought them to Copenhagen. “Designed to be of the time and for the time,” say UNIQLO, “‘LifeWear’ is made with such modern elegance that it becomes the building blocks of individual style. The collection is constantly being updated to bring more warmth and lightness, better design, and better comfort to everybody’s lives. We very much look forward to the opening, and are pleased to have five ambassadors who embody UNIQLO’s commitment to creating perfect clothing that suits daily routines.”
