Urban Renewal is all about finding ways to make the old new again. Each piece is handcrafted in Philadelphia from vintage deadstock and surplus materials. Rooted in a love of vintage, Urban Renewal is our updated take on the style of the past.
I have been a fan of this line for some time. While I would love to shop exclusively in Anthropolgie, I sadly can not afford it. Urban Outfitters is the same company, but much more affordable. I steer clear of the things that I might have bought there in college, try to be more selective, and usually I have pretty good luck!
The clothes that I love are almost always Urban Renewal. I have always been a huge fan of vintage clothes, stealing my moms old Calvins and buying two pairs of vintage Levi corduroys when I was a sophomore at a Dover street fair......that was just the beginning. Urban Renewal has that retro style and look about it.
I was thrilled when I got the Urban catalog today and it was full of images from the line. I love it! While there is not a ton of stuff online......there is more in the store usually. Working on the post I discovered their 'one of a kinds'. Available only online these are pieces that are just great vintage finds. Check out the Marc Jacobs black tunic and Esprit dress above from the 90's....how fun!
