Licensing Matters Global has secured a new partnership across mainland China, Hong Kong and Korea for its client, Harvard University, a member of the Ivy League. The agreement with young adult, kids’ and family fashion brand, GU, will deliver a Harvard apparel range across the territory. 

The fall ’22 and winter ’23 collection, which launched in December, comprises 15+ SKUs and includes a sweat hoodie, sweat dress, padded varsity jacket, sweatpants, sweatshirts, hoodies and pullovers. The range is on sale online and in GU’s shops across the region.
