Earth Day 2013 Windows
This season they have transformed their store windows into snow-covered forests, all a-scurry with critters peeking through the trees. Layers and layers (and layers…) of finely snipped paper!
Their new windows aren’t just inspired by the beauty of nature, but in many cases, they borrow directly from it. Crafted of organic elements like fallen leaves, found rocks and broken branches—along with a host of handmade touches—the installations are celebratory of all things earthy, green and growing.
Blueberries, blackberries, beets and turmeric—these delicious edibles (and many others) played a big role in Anthropologies newest windows, featuring flower gardens colored with natural dyes. What did their store teams love most about working with plants? Says window guru Erika S., “The beauty of natural dyeing is in the unknown. A color result could be completely different from one day to the next. To enjoy the process, you need to let go of all you know about dyeing and the idea that you can control the colors.” How did their perfectly imperfect creations turn out? Dig into their photos to see.
