Another day, another Urban Outfitters designer collab. Label Corpus has released pieces from its fall byCorpus for Urban Outfitters line—a collection for guys and gals, ranging from $54 for a polo, $98 for bleach-splashed skinny jeans and $348 for vintage-inspired leather bomber jackets. The lookbook above takes a hanging out at college whimsy, but with an added edge from byCorpus' clean-grunge aesthetic.
In the video interview with Corpus' Jerrod Cornish and Keith Richardson, the designers discuss how they've been in talks with UO for three or four years about collabing. The two enjoyed the process, which "doesn't feel like a rigid, corporate environment." Cornish describes the byCorpus line as channeling a "darker, urban environment...not the beach...with slimmer fits...." and having an "eye toward a more youthful version of where Corpus is going right now."
