Known for its retro, kitsch branding, Urban Outfitters sells clothes for both men and women, as well as stocking lifestyle and homewares brands.

Across its 240 worldwide stores, Urban Outfitters stocks an array of brands including Truly Madly Deeply, Champion, Fila and Vans, as well as a host of lesser known brands. So, we can’t wait to see what they stock in the Dubai store.

Urban Outfitters’ Middle East debut was first revealed in 2018, when retail group AZADEA announced that it had entered an exclusive partnership with the brand.

““As there continues to be a high demand for experiential concepts, we believe Urban Outfitters will be very well received by our customers across the MENA region,” commented Said G. Daher, CEO at AZADEA at the time of the announcement.
