It feels like only yesterday that we were telling you about Anthropologie's expansion to Europe, in fact it was waaay back in January. The American retailer's first European store will open this Friday with a mega 10,000-square-foot space housing clothing, accessories and homeware.

Despite hailing from Philadelphia originally, the new Regent Street flagship reeks of English eccentricity. Stocking a mixture of cloth-bound classic novels such as Jane Eyre with English and American fashion labels including MiH jeans, Ruffian and Sara Berman. Another highlight is Eley Kishimoto's capsule collection for the brand, EK Jam Factory for Anthropologie.

It really does look lovely inside - you must get down there to check it out!
