Launched earlier this year, Urban Outfitters’ World Wide Brands series is the retailer’s curated collection of international streetwear labels, established in order to shine a light on brands from across the globe. From Indonesia to Istanbul, the concept, which introduces one to two new brands each month, has created a platform for clothing lines from countries often overlooked on the global fashion stage, as well as for smaller names from the clothing capitals.
