Dazed, the London-based bimonthly fashion and style magazine, will unveil the launch of its Chinese edition with Yoho!, a Chinese media, e-commerce and event platform, on Tuesday, WWD has learned.
Mars Liang, founder of Yoho!, said: “This collaboration is not limited to media licensing; I believe with this opportunity, we can create commercial, creative and cultural synergy.”
The Nanjing-based Yoho! is one of China’s most influential streetwear platforms. Its business portfolio includes the magazine Yoho! Boy and Yoho! Girl; the annual festival Yo’Hood; e-commerce site Yoho! Buy; the brand incubator Yo’Hope, and retail boutiques Yoho! Store and Yoho! Blu.
