Founded in 1992, Pennsylvania, USA, by current URBN chairman and president Dick Hayne, Anthropologie was named after his college major (with a decidedly French twist). Anthropologie, which now operates over 200 stores worldwide, has evolved into a leading one-of-a-kind destination for those seeking a curated mix of clothing, accessories, gifts and home décor to reflect their personal style. In 2009 the brand launched its first store in London and currently has 18 stores in the UK and 4 in Europe. Anthropologie Europe is owned by URBN, a portfolio of global consumer brands including Urban Outfitters, Free People, BHLDN and Terrain.
