While it’s hard to believe that summer is more than half over, now is the perfect time to start getting excited about heading back to school.

Fortunately for shoppers, MUJI, the unique and diverse Japanese clothing, home goods, craft and decor store, is working to make life more pleasant for students and professionals with its renowned products.

And this summer, MUJI has something special planned for shoppers.

The Square One location will be partnering with local Instagrammer Paulina, who is known for her photography, study tips and stunning stationery flat-lays, for a Back-to-School workshop at the end of the month (more details to be announced soon!)

MUJI Canada will also be participating in this year’s Japan Festival, commemorating Japan and Canada’s 90th anniversary of international relations.

Everyone is invited to stop by and check out the exclusive outdoor lounge, featuring MUJI’s top-selling Well-Fitted Bead Sofa Cushions. Also, a limited-quantity Back-to-School coupon will be available to festival attendees, so don’t miss out!

Anyone interested in learning more can sign up for MUJI’s online newsletter, MUJI Mail, through the MUJI Canada website for more information about upcoming promotions and these special upcoming events!

But even though there’s still a few weeks left to enjoy summer, it’s time to start thinking about what to wear this fall.

Flannel Collection: $39-$129

Just in time for back to school, MUJI has brought back the organic flannel collection. This year, everyone can enjoy new colours and cuts (blouses, dresses, and stand-collar style shirts) that are available in great fall colours.

For a limited time only, flannel items will be on sale exclusively, starting Friday, August 17.

If you love organization, you don’t want to miss out on MUJI’s stationery collection. Make sure your shopping list includes MUJI’s ever-popular gel pens in a rainbow assortment of colour options and nib sizes (0.38mm to 0.7mm: $17.50), the bundle set of five notebooks ($4.50-$5.00) with multi-coloured spines (which are great for organizing notes for different classes), and a schedule planner to keep you organized and on top of your workload in the coming school year. ($7.00-$25).  

MUJI’s must-have Back-to-School Fall ‘18 coordinates, inspired by the hustle and bustle of Tokyo, feature an array of pieces that can be added into any wardrobe. Both ladies wear and menswear looks demonstrate MUJI’s commitment to accessible contemporary looks with clean lines, pleasant shapes, and most importantly, no “frills.”

If it’s clothing you’re looking for, MUJI has got you covered.

This fall, MUJI is offering womenswear looks that are perfect for college and university students.

For the youthful student, MUJI has something modern and vibrant, pairing a casual, pastel hoodie (Organic Cotton French Terry Pullover in Light Yellow: $49) with a striped long-sleeve tee (Organic Cotton Stretch Long Sleeve T-Shirt in Black Border: $25), balancing the silhouette with a trouser in a wider leg (Cotton Mix Easy Wide Trousers in Brown: $79).

Inspired by Japanese schoolgirl uniforms, but elevated for the keen scholar – a sweet, rounded collar button-down (Organic Cotton Broad Round Collar Shirt in White: $39) paired with a bright knit (Wool Silk Crewneck Cardigan in Smoky Mustard: $69) makes for a thoughtful pairing.

And there’s a lot for men, too!

Inspired by Instagram fashion influencers in Japan, MUJI’s Fall ‘18 collection for menswear shines a focus on pattern-mixing and fit detailing.

A classic look, pairing blue gingham (Organic Cotton Oxford Button Down Shirt in Blue: $49) and khaki bottoms (Stretch Polyester Easy Trousers in Dark Beige: $69), can be pulled together by a sharp yet casual, grey blazer (Wool Mix Blazer in Charcoal Gray: $189). Accessorize with some glasses for maximum professorial vibes!

For coordinates featuring contrasting textures and hues, MUJI’s button-down in an Americana-style denim (Organic Cotton Indigo Denim Stripe Shirt in Navy: $59) against bold stripes (Coarse Organic Cotton Long Sleeve T-Shirt in Dark Navy: $39), paired with pristine, fitted white trousers (Organic Cotton Stretch Slim Fit Trousers in Off White: $59) is perfect for the modern academic with a keen eye for details.

The styling and suitability of MUJI garments is for everyone. Classic in silhouette, with touch of the contemporary; the Fall ’18 collection is perfect for the student looking to start the school year with a functional, fresh look! Be it Tokyo, Toronto, or Mississauga, every day, MUJI is enough.
