Since the temperature has dropped about twenty degrees in the last week, it doesn’t seem too silly talking about autumn 2012 ranges, in particular the lovely things we saw at Anthropologie. The bought in ranges for autumn (the ones Anthropologie buy in to beef up its own-made styles) have gone all Skandi, which pleases us no end as we are partial to some Scandinavian style, as you all know. The highlights included dresses by Danish brands Baum Und Pferdgarten and Rutzou and this lovely top (below left) by Swedish designer Filippa K.
Non Skandi influences included the intricate cardigan from British brand Crumpet, with a beautiful back detail, the cute floral fronted sweater from Parisian brand I Love Leon and the highly covetable paisley printed trousers from Paige denim in ivy. Anthro’ clothes are expensive, but we still love getting inspired by the great way the retailer puts together its looks. This season the range was shown at Elms Lesters Painting Rooms and its boldly colourful walls really made a great backdrop for next seasons colours and textures. Most styles in store/online from July/August.
