Anthropologie’s State Street location recently celebrated its one-year anniversary, and I was on hand with some friends to attend the anniversary reception and spring line preview.
Snacking on the delicious antipasto and dessert spreads, we chatted and admired all the lovely things. I am a big fan of the Anthro aesthetic, and always gather inspiration from their whimsical displays, playful patterns, found object furnishings, and obviously the gorgeous garments.
Anthropologie’s spring collection continues its penchant for prints, ikat, floral, stripes, and the like, pairing them with a neutral color story of classic pieces such as shorts, scarves, and wraps to layer for the sunnier days ahead. Champagne and shopping are a winning combination, and the reception was a colorful retreat from Chicago’s cold winter work week.
Joyeux anniversaire Anthro!
