honestly! you wait ages for your favourite stateside boutique to cross the pond, and then two go and show up within six months of one another!
so, i popped in to the preview day at the new anthropologie store on the king’s road today (official opening is tomorrow) and i have to say, i might even love it more than the flagship store on regent street!
the new shop is located in the 8000-square-foot antiquarius building, which was formerly a gentleman’s club. everything is housed on a single ground floor and lower mezzanine, so you are not constantly trundling up and down the stairs as you are in regent street, which i definitely appreciate. sure, there is no ‘living wall’ but this store has it’s own waterfall and a much more chilled-out vibe. it feels lighter and airier than the flagship, and clothing, beauty and homewares are mingled in a much more seamless fashion.
with necessary purse-pinching, i managed to restrain myself and only purchased this super cute necklace, which will go with everything in the coming summer months, and some adorable little luggage labels which i will use in a photo shoot soon i’m sure.
