Urban Outfitters Launches Pricey Jewelry “Studio”

There’s a new jewelry section in Urban Outfitters‘ online shop called the Studio. There, you’ll find some impressive pieces like heavy-duty chunky necklaces, blingy gemstone rings, and conceptual design pieces by up-market designers Sabrina Dehoff, Lizzie Fortunato, and BJ by Jules Kim, among others. We’re definitely lusting over the offerings (check out Dara Ettinger’s natural mineral rings!), but are not so into the huge price tags. Prices start around $80, but hover more at the $200 mark. Some necklaces even go for almost $500! We have to wonder … would you drop a couple hundred on a piece of jewelry from Urban? [Urban Outfitters] Keep reading »

Urban Outfitters Gets In On The Beauty Game

Urban Outfitters knows that even hipsters need makeup. Following in the general direction of Topshop, the retailer has launched a mega online beauty shop. We’re loving the selection for the cute, niche brands like Paul & Joe, Anna Sui, and DuWop, but the best thing about this new venture is the stock of indie makeup labels you may have never seen before. Today, we discovered Japonesque, a line of super-slick eyelash tools; Girlactik, a collection of glam, shimmery makeup; and Cutler, a specialist in top-notch hair products. See what good Urban can do when they stick to what they’re good at (instead of, you know, telling us how to eat)? Enjoy! [Urban Outfitters] Keep reading »

Urban Outfitters Wants You To “Eat Less”

So, let’s review, shall we? Urban Outfitters:

  1. Wants to add “Obama/Black” to the Crayola box,
  2. Suggests it’s up to men to “preserve” their daughters’ virginity,
  3. Does not want to support gay marriage,
  4. And now thinks women should “eat less.”

You know what I want? Urban Outfitters to STFU. [via Hug Party] Keep reading »

Urban Outfitters Wants Dads To Protect Sacred Female Virginity

Need a gift for your dad for Father’s Day? Good luck with that, because I’m certainly not going to suggest you buy Pops this T-shirt from Urban Outfitters, even if it’s on sale for $4.99. Although, I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised that the retailer is rather wonkadoodle with their political and cultural point-of-view — they did sell a T-shirt in the color “Obama/Black.” While I suspect this T is supposed to be, ahem, “ironically sexist,” it grosses me out that Urban is happy to make money off of ha-ha-misogyny, but finds real social issues to be too “controversial” — they refused to sell a T-shirt that said “I Support Marriage Equality.” Lame, Urbs. Lame. [Feministing] Keep reading »

Urban Outfitters Necklace Closely Resembles Indie Design

Urban Outfitters’ rib cage necklace (right) bears a striking resemblance to indie designer Lillian Crowe‘s rendition (left), doesn’t it? The designer, who debuted the bone jewelry last March, thinks so and she’s trying not to be pissed. The fashion industry would have stalled and died a long time ago if designers couldn’t “be inspired” by other designers’ work, but copying a ruffled hem on a dress is entirely different from essentially knocking off a design entirely. Though Crowe’s gold necklace is more detailed (and cooler!) than the Urban Outfitters variety, something about this feels very David and Goliath to us. If this level of “inspiration” is OK, how can small designers even attempt to compete with huge retailers? Keep reading »

Put Charles In Charge Of Your Wardrobe

For the hipstertastic dressers out there who came of age in the ’80s, this shirt is for you. With retro stripes and a loose cut, the icing on the cake is a photo of dreamboat (well, maybe) Scott Baio screened onto the chest. OK, so if you don’t love Chachi, you might be appalled by this style. But for those who do, you can place this right next to your “I Love Steve Buscemi” tee (because we know you have one of those, too).
