Into The Deep-Anthropologie’s Spring Windows

Okay, so today is “Anthropologie, Take Two” here at Style Meganzine. I was absolutely floored when I saw their spring windows! I come from a very visual background and Anthro has some of the most talented visual merchandisers and display artists in the industry. The theme is “Earth Day” and honors the company’s partnership with the Wyland Foundation, a non-profit working to promote ocean stewardship. Did you know that 60% of the world’s coral reefs are expected to suffer major damage or vanish completely over the next 30 years? The windows are a celebration of life under the ocean and are filled with jellyfish, octopi, sea stars, and other ocean creatures. They are truly amazing and eye-catching windows.

    Thanks for sharing, Megan. Living in rural MN it is likely I would never see these windows. The displays are truly a remarkable accomplishment.
