M.W Shopper: Giri-Giri Stuff~ Part 1

Our first M.Weekend Shopper – Giri-Giri edition! Why giri-giri? Giri-giri is an expression for English equivalents such as “just made it” & “close call.” We aim to slot various limited edition merchandise that we think are interesting in this shopping post.

Just a note: Most of the merchandise that we update you on are usually anime/manga inspired.

Hope you’ll find this helpful!

For Him:

Naruto x UT (UniQlo Printed T-Shirts)

M.W: I’ve only seen a release in the U.K & Japan, so it might be exclusive. Oh, it only has a men’s line. I checked out UniQlo in Regent Street London, the store nearer to Piccadilly Circus but the collection was not present. I’m not sure whether it’s in stores yet or whether a particular UniQlo stocks it, but it’s available online. It’s a very nice collection & UniQlo’s clothes are really comfy.

*UPDATE: I found the collection available in Hong Kong. By the way! MangaUK is currently having a lucky draw on Twitter. Participants must replace their Twitter profile picture with the MangaUK profile picture. You should then tweet them so that you can participate. It ends at GST 17:00PM 03/02/2011 – which is today. 10 lucky winners will get a Naruto T-shirt!

For Her:

Shu Uemura x Aya Takano

M.W: This make-up collection has been on launched at the end of last year as Shu Uemura’s Holiday 2010 collection but I’m bringing it up here as a reminder that the collection is still sold online. I’m not sure whether Shu Uemura brick & mortar stores still carry these items and some bits of the collection may be sold out online I’m afraid. Treat this as a little “close-call,” if you’re not aware, but still interested. I’ll be much prepared to update on these limited edition goods in the future since we now have a specific post to address these wonderful things.
