Just had to share this. Anthropologie does it again!

This fabulous feathery display is on show in the Regent St store….well it was a couple of weeks ago. In my former life I used to make feather fascinators and these guinea fowl feathers were always my favourite to work with. They take dye very well with the colour filling the white spots.

…anyway…I digress…. Here is the feathery installation in all its glory!

On close inspection it seems that each feather has been pierced with a needle thru the center spine and threaded by hand onto nylon thread. That’s a lot of hours work! I hope you get a chance to see it. And of course while I was in the store I took a few more images from around this palace of joy and inspiration. Enjoy!

And when you’re exhausted take a wash and brush up here! But before you go home walk down to Trafalgar Sq and take a peek at this fine specimen!….

  1. Hey, saw you at the party! Hope your head doesn’t hurt as much as mine. I was just passing on my way home and was attracted by these lovely photos. I used to design for Anthro and still love their product. That’s usually a sure fire way to turn yourself off a company, I’ve found, but not this one. Now if you could draw the curtains I’d lay my pounding head down on some of those lovely feathers…
