Yay! Today is a very exciting day, the first Anthropologie store on this side of the pond is opening its doors on Regent Street in London. On the downside it will probably lead to me drowning in a sea of debt as I struggle to rein myself in when I set foot inside. I can't wait to loose myself among all the delights I know will be waiting within those walls. For anyone who is not already aware of Anthropologie, take a look at their US website to see what they are all about. Think gorgeous, inspirational clothing, accessories and home decor with a crafty/handmade, vintage aesthetic.
The brand is owned by Urban Outfitters and there are definitely crossover elements between them but where Urban Outfitters is young, hip and edgy I would say that Anthro is more feminine, sophisticated and aspirational. If there are any UK residents wishing to check out this new palace of general awesomeness and beauty, here is the address of the store:
158 Regent Street
London, W1B 5SW
A second store is also due to open on the Kings Road in Chelsea in early 2010. Be still my beating heart!
