SS14 previews: Anthropologie

I have been racing about these last few days visiting all the Spring/Summer 2014 press days.. Spring has sprung in Poppyville.. and it’s confusing. Because I’m wearing earmuffs.. but such is the fashion calendar and who am I to stand in the way of floaty fabrics and florals. No one. That’s who.

Throughout this week I’ll be focussing very much on all the pretty things I’ve been seeing from various brands, but today I thought I’d start with Anthropologie.

Gorgeous colours, fabrics, prints, patterns and aromas, (LOVE those candles) hit me as I walked in.. The Anthro experience is an emotional one and always seems to attack all my senses. It speaks to me in a way that other brands just can’t seem to crack. I’m a little bit in love with Anthropologie… and I know I’m not on my own.

Here’s a little Instagram vid I took of some of the stunning accessories..

I wandered through their three new collections and each had its own identity and its own share of detail, gorgeousness and special Anthro-touches.. Each collection also included some new brands, such as Blank, Tinsel and Denham.. (did you know Anthropologie supports all kinds of new, independent labels? They’re like the fashion leg-up for the little people..)
Stunning jewellery – see the little video for more sparkles…

My very good friend Miss Magpie Fashion Spy was there too, so we sat down, had a cup of tea (thank you Anthropologie – even your mugs are heavenly) and she did a spot of doodling. I showed her a couple of my favourite pieces and this is what she did. What a clever Magpie..

In case you were wondering – this is exactly what my legs look like.

And here she is at work…

Anthropologie have created a beautiful, soft feminine collection, full of pretty dresses, Summer whites, embroidery and adornments… a kind of ‘world traveller’ collection, with a modern European feel, packed with lush fabrics, Scandi brands and oodles of tassles and trims.. and a playful collection of jump suits, denims, (gorgeous, soft denim! Ding ding!) and culottes, in a Spring colour palette of indigos and blues.

Me, amidst it all…

I loved seeing what’s coming up around the corner in Anthroland and I may have already started writing my wish list… such a pretty place to be is Anthropologie. I wonder if they’d notice me if I pitched a tent and set up camp in their Regent St store… don’t tell them. It’s an excellent plan.

So yes, I'll admit it. I was dubious. Really dubious. I thought I'd be entering a sea of hen parties...
