It’s 1970s West Philadelphia, and a young man named Dick Hayne opens a store called Free People; this store sold young peoples clothing and encouraged freedom. As the store became two the name changed to Urban Outfitters, and continued to grow on a worldwide scale. The Free People brand was kept alive, and developing since the early 80s; and this Autumn will be coming to the UK.
Shedding their junior image, Free People brands itself as clothing for the mid-twenties woman who is smart, confident, creative and adventurous. You can check out some of the vibrant items from the Free People catalogue in the video below featuring high profile stunners Karlie Kloss and Aline Weber wearing everything from cozy jumpers to edgy denim options, and if you want to get ahead of the game shipping from the US is just $7.95 (import taxes may apply) see the online store here http://www.freepeople.com
