Fast Retailing’s Uniqlo said on Friday it would expand its kids’ and babies’ collection by 50% as the Japanese casualwear brand pushes ahead to become the world’s biggest apparel retailer by 2020. “Until now, our offering, particularly for girls, wasn’t sufficient,” Shuichi Nakajima, group executive vice-president, said. Uniqlo said it aims to double revenues for the kids’ and babies’ lines this year but did not provide specific figures.

It will also expand the number of its Japanese stores offering childrenswear by 60% to 679.

It said about 600 overseas stores would also carry the expanded range but did not say how many of those stores would be offering childrenswear for the first time.
