These include men’s wear and ladies’ wear, MUJI Walker, a range of UV-resistant fast-drying clothing, and Homewear, a line of casuals. These underline that MUJI is clothing for everyone, for everyday wear. MUJI New Collection is being launched alongside the Autumn/Winter collection 2022 at every MUJI store from 26 August 2022 onwards.
Mr. Akihiro Kamogari, Managing Director of MUJI RETAIL (Thailand) Co., Ltd. commented that MUJI Is fully entering the apparel market with a target to expand its customer base on the proposition of clothing that anyone can wear comfortably on any day. The company is reaching its target audience with affordable prices, while retaining the quality which is MUJI’s hallmark. With the MUJI New Collection, MUJI has designed an exclusive special collection to meet the needs of regional customers for the first time, including Thais. The clothes have been improved to cope with local climate, and the designs have tweaked to be more formal, with the texture of the cloth itself promoting formality. The main fiber chosen is Organic cotton and Lyocell –a new alternative for sustainability made from high-technology Eucalyptus pulp with environmental-friendly production process. Cloth texture is smooth, durable, and best air flowable allowing comfortable wearing, cold touching which is suitable for warm weather.
MUJI New Collection will be manufactured and sold alongside MUJI’s Autumn/Winter 2022 Collection. On the same racks as clothing for warmth during the winter, this new collection focuses on designs appropriate for everyday wear in Thailand.
As for marketing communication strategy, it is the first time for MUJI to use a wider range of marketing tools with the goal of building awareness. This includes famous influencers and YouTubers to create online awareness. There is also a focus on communicating with new target groups. Going forward, MUJI will continue with integrated marketing tools on every platform to expand awareness of MUJI’s clothing products into new target segments.
“For this new collection, we have revamped the designs to better match weather, culture and trends at the regional level. For instance, shorts have been made shorter. Previously, MUJI stocked mostly casual clothing, so designs have now been adjusted in this new collection to be more formal. They can be worn for work or attending social functions. As well as improving both designs and fabrics, prices have also been adjusted downward while retaining quality to MUJI standards. It is a new start for MUJI in terms of providing customers with care drawn from insight into their behavior. The company is manufacturing products which better meet customers’ needs. It is underlining that fashion products on sale in MUJI are clothing for every person, which can be worn in comfort every day,” said Mr Kamogari.
