ANTHROPOLOGICAL FIND FANTASTIC FOUR


Our pick of the most exciting, intriguing or important local business stories right now


STROLL ALONG New Bond Street from 30 May, and you’ll discover a real find – Bath’s new Anthopologie store, the fifth in the UK, on the corner adjoining Newgate Street. The store will offer customers 8,700 square feet of exclusively sourced Anthropologie homewares and fashion, and as with its sister stores, it has been carefully crafted to seamlessly fit in with the city’s rich heritage. The colonnaded storefront is skinned in Bath stone, and the overall design respects the existing building’s character.


The product range selected includes an exclusive edit of local artists and designers, including Hatchet and Bear, a designer and woodworker from Frome who uses traditional


methods to create her range of spoons and kitchen gadgets out of locally gathered wood; and textile designer Penny Seume, who has created a collection of beautiful furniture and cushions using photos of Bath’s landscape. Anthropologie will also be stocking some exclusive designs from Meticulous Ink’s Athena Cauley-Yu, a stationery designer and typesetter, and Charlie Cumming, dedicated illustrator and printer, and hosting a calligraphy workshop later in the year.


Events planned for the store include local artist Sally Muir in store sketching pup portraits, where customers can take away their own dog’s portrait with proceeds going to charity. For more www.anthropologie.eu
