Anthropologie is the sister store of urban outfitters and is targetted at a more mature age group of late twenties onwards.
There are two stores in London, Regent Street and Kings Road. Each anthropologie store is different in layout and the layout of each store is such that the section seamlessly blend into each other, so you never feel like you are shopping but more of a relaxing browse in your own house. (if only my house looks like the store though). There is a comforting, cosy feel to the store and even a Living wall in the Regent street store with plants planted into the wall. The store does tend to be quite green and the design of the store is excellent in my opinion.
The store carries homeware, clothes and furniture. The furniture are one off pieces (not sure if they are vintage/antique but they sure look like though). The clothes are also sourced mostly from independent designers and also London designers for the London store, hence the difference between every outlets. The online store carries about 70% of what is carried in the store (from what the store assistant told me or it could be the other way round) but I do find the online store more attrractive in terms of trying to find available sizes and items. The store offers the chance to check out the material of the clothes though. With anthropologie as the clothes are quirky, sometimes, you really need to go in store to try on the clothes and feel them for yourself. It is a sensory experience shopping in there. Shipping from anthropologie is £5.95 (from what i remember) and no free return. The site is very clean, very simply to browse through. There is enough zoom on the clothes to make sure that you can see the details. As the collection is made up of different brands though, it is a good idea to step in store and try as I do noticed that i buy different sizes across the same collection.
The anthropologie card also allows returns without a receipt (i am not sure if there are any points etc). Possibly it is used to track the spending pattern of a person but I am not opposed to that if that means that they can bring in even better things. :)
have sale periodically and the clothes are a bargain then, otherwise, this is a shop to treat yourself when you need a bit of pampering (at least on my income).
I love shopping in the store. The shop assistants are very friendly, the dressing room spacious and attractively presented, and the I love the layout. The clothes are quirky and fun and I feel so different wearing them.
The negative side is that the clothes are priced higher than in US. And they do carry a much smaller range of clothes on the European site.
Summary: A store to treat yourself to
