Anthropologie – welcome to the UK, baby

October 20, 2009

Oh, we’ve waited patiently. We’ve never complained. We’ve twiddled our thumbs and admired politely from afar on blogs and in American mags since 1992, with never a moan or a mutter. We waited for the genius Mr Hayne, of Urban Outfitters fame, to remember little ol’ Europe, pack his designer suitcase full of eclectic homewares, and pop over here to open a shop. And now, he’s finally answered our prayers. The UK’s first Anthropologie opens at 158 Regent Street, London, this Friday 23rd October, but I’m going to the sneaky peek press launch at the store tomorrow. Be rude not to really.

Picture 20There’s a Kings Road store planned soon, too, and the online shop is launching in spring 2010 to spread the love to the rest of Europe. I haven’t been this excited since 1987, at my 5th birthday party, when I had to be shut in a room to calm down because it was all too much fun and I was in danger of actually popping with joy. Anthropologie, welcome to the UK. We love you. – Ellie

    So when will they realize that Canada would like an Anthropologie store as well? I’m actually surprised that the UK got one before we did. Ah well, such is life! I’m sure our time will come, someday 🙂
