Shop Talk: Anglo-Anthro
After months of preparation, it's finally time for Anthropologie's first European store to open at 158 Regent Street in London's West End. The public is invited to see the vast new shop on Friday, October 23, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. (I've heard the garden wall is amazing.) Click here for details.
Shown above, textile artist Becky Oldfield works on her signature Union Jacks, which will be a key part of the instore design. See Selvedge, issue 30 for more, and click here for a related Sundance Channel video with Becky and Anthro's buyer at large, Keith Johnson. Episode six of Man Shops Globe, scheduled for November 11, will highlight Keith's adventures in London.
