i love how the retail world embraces each new season so enthusiastically and so exceptionally early. it gives us consumers stuck in the dry-skin-dry-hair-dry-fashion-spell dead of winter something to look forward to. and you know what else i look forward to? the onset of each season brings anthro designers new inspiration and each store is ripe with gorgeously clever why-didn't-i-think-of-that? window and store displays. and anthropologie spring 2011 windows are no exception. i personally love the way their designers consistently repurpose everyday items in to something beautiful. how very creative and how very green of them. it's a good way to look at life - finding beauty in the simplest things. here's what anthro has to say about their spring looks:
georgetown, dc store (see image at the top of post as well) - quite possibly the best and most creative anthro store i've ever visited. this looks very queen victoria to me. and i bet if you told queen victoria that she would look cool in clothespins, she would have had you beheaded.
in charlotte, zippers can be cool, too, apparently.
i think i may steal this idea and get crafty with a zipper to make a big pin. we'll see how that goes...
in marleton, nj, they've really got the hang of things. get it? i crack myself up.
my future children (maybe?) will never wear anthropologie clothing because i refuse to let them drool and spill kool-aid on them. (or whatever you're supposed to feed kids?) however, the tiny little clothes - like that little tiered skirt - are really sweet to look at.
more clothespins in skokie, il. this reminds me of the scene in cinderella when the birds and mice make her ball gown. there's a part when the birds fly around and lift up all the layers of skirt fabric and it looks just like this.
it's like a rainbow. except the gold at the end is very very stylish and expensive.
