Founded in 1992 and launching their first mail order catalogue and website online in 1998, Lifestyle Brand Anthropologie now operates Stores worldwide.
When I visited Los Angeles in 2009 (A very memorable Californian Spring) the store touched my arty farty side. The clothes, the interiors, the books, the quirky and colourful home and design items – it all expressed a certain “artful” lifestyle which I fell in love with. The clothes are probably not my style, although they are great relaxed pieces, clothes you know that you’ll be comfortable in no matter what – the books and the atmosphere are great – it definitely has a unique style !
Whilst Laying on my bed, surfing the net – recovering from surgery – I decided to have a little browse at their awesome online catalogue. I’m a sucker for books !! ESPECIALLY anything on fashion design and Paris ! VOILA ! Just the perfect book(that I’d also been wanting for awhile) – Ines de la fressange’s “Parisian Chic”. Impatiently waiting for my new book to arrive, I decided to add a lovely Turquoise Leather Journal to my Basket !
Date: Monday 7th November
Status: Overwhelmed with college work.
What?: Parcel arrives ! – And guess where it is from – YEP ! Anthropologie it is !
Sent over quick and easy – and the book – my god the book ! Read it in a day and I LOVED EVERY BIT OF IT. Short and sweet with great pictures and a sense of “fun” and inspiration highlighted throughout the book.
I honestly recommend it to every female out there who loves anything to do with fashion and style, travel and most importantly "Parisian Chic”.
Inés de la Fressange – who according to the blurb is “French’s icon of chic” shares her personal tips on travelling within Paris, listing stores and attractions for every occasion as well as tips on style, beauty and fashion – even something for the home. It really does have everything you need– hotels, restaurants, tiny tucked away boutiques, great places to buy things and unusual places. She allows us to be apart of her “ secret Paris”.
The book is short and sweet with great pictures and a sense of “fun” carried throughout it.
Intrigued ? Why not order a copy from Anthropologie now ?
