• UO Happenings: Connor Franta Celebrates Giving Tuesday with Common Culture Launch in L.A.

    We've been counting down the days until we could finally welcome Connor Franta into our stores for a mini-tour to celebrate the launch of the Common Culture + Urban Outfitters collection — and yesterday the wait was finally over. Launching online and in select stores (which you can find here) was the five-product line including a tee, crewneck, hoodie, and hats with all proceeds benefitting GLSEN, a nonprofit ensuring safe and affirming school environments for LGBTQ students. To show his appreciation, the collaboration's spearhead, Connor joined us at Space 15 Twenty in Los Angeles for a meet-and-greet with fans on Giving Tuesday and we couldn't think of a better way to celebrate. Re-live the excitement and tender moments here.

    As soon as Space 15 Twenty opened on Tuesday, fans filtered in to purchase Common Culture goods. The first 200 who picked up the gear got a chance to meet Connor that night.


    Wearing their new threads, the hundreds of fans queued up anxiously awaiting a photo op with Mr. Common Culture himself. 


    Each meet-and-greeter also walked away with a signed copy of the Common Culture musical compilation. 


    A creator's got to appreciate their work, right?


    Get your cameras ready, Connor's in the house!


    Every good meet-and-greet has dancing, snuggling, and flowers. 


    These Common Culture + UO collection sweatshirts are mighty cozy — and perfect for winter weather.


    Denim jacket wearers are true 'til the end.


    Thanks for helping us feel the love on Giving Tuesday. But the fun isn't over yet! Austin, you're up next: Be one of the first 200 to purchase Common Culture gear on Friday, December 2 at Space 24 Twenty and you'll get to meet Connor, too.

    The tour continues on December 7 in New York City and wraps up on December 9 at the Mall of America in Minnesota. Details on all the events are here.
