Newflash: Anthropologie coming soon to Europe
The US retailer is tipped to head our way after the recent appointment of James Bidwell to managing director of Anthropologie Europe. Bidwell joins the company from Visit London, and previously the London Tourist Board, where he was chief executive from 2005.
"We are excited that James will spearhead Anthropologie's growth in Europe and the UK," said Urban Outfitters (Anthropologie's co-brand) chief executive Glen Senk.
The first flagship store is said to be planned for Regent Street, alongside that other US retailer giant, Abercrombie & Fitch. Rumours suggest that Anthrolopogie is eyeing up store spaces between between 10,000 and 20,000sq ft.
It makes sense... America gets Topshop, it's only fair that we get Anthropologie, yes?
