SHANGHAI — Declaring ambitions to create Asia’s most globally recognized brand, Japanese retailer Uniqlo on Thursday launched an online store for China in partnership with Mainland Internet giant Taobao.com.
“Just as everyone drinks coffee, and that has been turned into Starbucks, everyone wears clothes, and that can be made into a universal Uniqlo experience,” said Jack Ma, or Ma Yun in Chinese, chairman and chief executive of Taobao’s parent Alibaba Group.
