Japan's Fast Retailing Co Ltd , the owner of the Uniqlo casual wear brand, reported a better-than-expected 80% jump in Q2 operating profit, as the company's efforts to improve margins helped offset flat revenues.
Uniqlo is getting busy on both sides of the Atlantic. Next week, the Japanese retail giant will launch a collection of T-shirts designed by noted French street artist and nightclub owner André Saraiva.
