There is no question that Australia and New Zealand are spilling over with talented fashion players—in the past few years, the world has been treated to such genius as Ksubi, Rebecca Taylor, Sass & Bide and Zimmermann, to name just a few. Happily, Urban Outfitters is now introducing two more Antipodean talents—Stolen Girlfriends Club, hailing from New Zealand, and Australia’s Shakuhachi—as part of its new Around The World boutique.
Stolen Girlfriends Club is the brainchild of Luke Harwood, Dan Gosling and Marc Moore. Originally established as an art project in 2005, the brand is now known for its relaxed separates, edgy silhouettes, sought-after denim and pop culture references. To celebrate the launch, Stolen Girlfriends Club has created a six-piece fall collection exclusively for Urban Outfitters that includes a cropped tee, fringed sweater, cable knit shirts and more.
Shakuhachi was founded by Bali-based designer Jessie White over ten years ago. Since then, Shakuhachi has become one of the most sought-after brands in Australia, thanks to its original prints, playful pieces and bold colors. Shakuhachi has tailored an exclusive eight-piece collection for Urban Outfitters that includes mesh shirts, acid-wash denim and maxi dresses.
Stolen Girlfriends Club and Shakuhachi will both be available in select Urban Outfitters stores, as well as online at UrbanOutfitters.com, on September 9.
