I’m addicted to Anthropologie. I fell in love years ago when I first started travelling regularly to the US for work. Needless to say, when they opened up on Regent Street, then around the corner on the King’s Road, I thought all my Christmases had come at once.
Speaking of Christmas, I reckon that you could gift me anything from Anthropologie and I’d be ecstatic. It’s almost like the buyers have braved crawling inside my twisted melon and pulled out all my sartorial and homeware needs and wants. Walking through those hallowed glass doors is like a healthier hit of cocaine (not that my credit card would agree).
As usual, I digress. On a visit to the King’s Road emporium last week I got faced by Chloe Harrison‘s Call of the Wild exhibition (the space has a small gallery just off the main entrance – another big fact tick in my book).
Chloe’s work is simply amazing – using recycled fabric, she creates these lifelike animal trophy heads*. Sounds weird, but the results are awesome (in the true sense of the word). Here are a few pictures, but I strongly urge you to visit – and while you’re there, feel free to pick me up something nice.
* No animals were harmed to create these amazing pieces. Obviously.
Not in London? You can shop online too.
Chloe Harrison also has a website.
