MUJI Takes Manhattan

muji_racked.jpg

This is the day that New York designers, and Michael Bierut especially, have been saving their paychecks for. The first stateside MUJI threw open its SoHo doors this morning with a little press preview, then got bombarded by the regular peeps at noon.

Initial reports are positive. Apartment Therapy‘s been stalking the scene, with reports of free bags. Racked (who we snagged that photo from) says lots of nice clothes but not so much furniture. Gothamist worries about sizing discrepancies, measures up the prices, and brings a nice slideshow. Now the countdown to the Midtown location, which should open in the new New York Times Building in time for the holidays. Better hurry up, Christmas is tomorrow if we’re measuring by how long the decorations have been up at our local mall.

UPDATE: There’s more! Core77 has photos and a haiku (free gift was pencils–sweet!) and Racked remains, well, obsessed.
