Liberty for Anthropologie {up a tree, K I S S I N G}

You know how certain things are made for each other; jam and cream, black and white, Liz and Richard etc etc

Well there is currently the most amazing collaboration happening — like two planets colliding — it’s a spectacular pairing.

Basically, my two very favourite  brands have put their heads together and created the most beautiful collection.

Liberty for Anthropologie

It makes me feel a bit giddy just to think about it, to be honest.

And even more giddy to see these beautiful images.

A symphony of colour and pattern; the most beautiful synergy of an iconic, much loved British brand with an American born company, over 100 years it’s junior.

Anthropologie Love

Anthropologie was founded in 1992 in Pennsylvania; and I vividly remember my first Anthro experience.

It was 1998 and we were in the states, visiting a friend. I remember walking into Anthropologie and  literally feeling as though I’d found my spiritual home. To this day, I’ve never been into another store that’s given me the same ‘kid in a sweetshop’ feeling.

The shop fittings were beautiful, the product even more so.

And every time we returned to the US, I managed to seek out the local Anthropologie and come home with a case full of goodies. At the time, the exchange rate was amazing — two dollars to the pound so everything was super cheap. I wish the same could be said these days!

Then, just over a decade later, they opened their first UK store. Happily, in Regent Street, which was about 500 yards from where I was working at the time.

I think it’s safe to say that I LOVE Anthro.

A British Icon

And I love Liberty too.

The most quintessential of British brands. Founded in 1875 and best known for the beautiful Tudor revival building it resides in; it’s glorious in-house florist and it’s instantly recognisable floral and graphic prints.

To have these two retail powerhouses coming together to create such a  gorgeous collection. Liberty for Anthropologie is the stuff that dreams are made of, to be honest.

And talking of dreams, I’d certainly sleep well in a Liberty adorned bed, that’s for sure.

My very favourite print is the one above, Feather Bloom. A dense floral motif, featuring a collage of berries, petals and leaves, inspired by an archived Liberty print from 1971.

1971?

Amazing how something that’s the best part of 50 years old can be so fresh and vibrant, even today.

A bit like me maybe?

    Ooh, looks good! I remember going to Dublin as a child with my mother specifically for her to buy Liberty fabric for a dress she was going to make for herself. I have offcuts of the fabric in a patchwork design.I made years later.

    Would you believe that despite being born and raised in London I have never been to Liberty. Terrible, I know, and something I plan on rectifying asap. (I’ve also never been to Anthropologie…. Or IKEA but that’s by the by). Gosh, I’ve lived a sheltered life. 😂 #HomeETC
