Uniqlo will bring its baby and kids’ collections — including mini synthetic down jackets for $29.90 — Stateside this fall to the chain’s 34th Street and Fifth Avenue flagships in New York City (sorry, Soho shoppers!) and to the Westfield Garden State Plaza location in Paramus, New Jersey. The retailer already stocks the pint-size styles in Japan and other countries.
