Anthropologie has cemented its position as the undisputed king of everything bohemian-chic by winning a spot in our hearts, closets, and homes. Dick Hayne, the chairman and president of URBN, founded the US-based lifestyle company Anthropologie, the retail destination that comes from a trend-setting family with super-cool siblings. They, who? Oh, just the queens of streetwear, Urban Outfitters, and the earthy, soulful Free People. Yes, it makes sense that Anthropologie has a natural finesse given her genes.
There is no doubt that Dick Hayne has a sense of style. In the affluent Pennsylvanian town of Wayne, a store called Anthropologie—named after Hayne’s undergraduate major but slightly altered with a touch of French—opened its doors in 1992. In less than three decades, there will be more than 200 Anthropologie stores adorning high-streets all over the world.
Anthropologie has a distinctive atmosphere; in fact, its expressive products draw creative women who aren’t afraid to be themselves, whether they are city slickers like UO or earth children like Free People. Anthropologie is like an Alladin’s cave of discovery, so one should go in with no expectations and let the boho textiles, luxurious scented candles, and slouchy chaise longues guide them.
A visit to Anthropologie is very different from shopping at your standard department store since it offers an otherworldly charm and a look into the great diversity of our planet. But be aware that not everything is moons and mandalas (even though it is perhaps what they do best). In contrast, Anthropologie gets their design ideas from five different types of fashion: boho-chic, soft and delicate, easy-cool, exquisite classic, and modern sporty.So it’s reasonable to say that everyone will find something to enjoy.
A world of amazing products at your fingertips
The dressing area at Anthropologies is overflowing with all the hues of the Silk Road (and reams of silk pieces to match). Slip into everything from eye-catching printed dresses to handkerchief-style sundresses and even more formal, harder-edged pieces for black-tie occasions, weddings, and glittering galas.
You can discover easy-to-wear tiered midis, prairie-sweet puff-sleeve frocks, and chintzy shifts that would put Twiggy to shame at the go-to store for holiday attire and festive finds. Your ideal dress can be discovered among the opulent wealth of Anthropologie’s (and soon to be your) wardrobe selection, in short (and long, and midi).
Aside from dresses, Anthropologie has accessories that will improve your everyday look. You may accessorize any ensemble with anything from opulent leather to bold sunglasses, huge scarves, and floppy hats, all of which naturally emanate notes of genuine bohemia, true to tradition.
