Available at stores in London, Manchester, Amsterdam, Milan, Copenhagen, Barcelona, Glasgow and Antwerp, the pop-up includes products featuring the Smiley logo reimagined by Paris-based Swedish graffiti artist, Andre Saraiva.

Shoppers can find key products featured in the store such as iets frans … x Smiley + 50th Anniversary collectors editions. 

As part of the campaign, Urban Outfitters has created a pop-up room environment for consumers to immerse themselves in the work of Smiley, from infinity mirror windows to branded changing rooms in the Manchester and Oxford Circus branches.
