Exclusive Special Feature: Anthropologie Introduces MADE IN KIND

Florence Balducci

“Though technically an illustrator and designer by trade, Florence Balducci is a professional imaginer. Her illustrations are whimsy defined and her collection of one-of-a-kind embelished jackets suggests a magpie’s eye for all things charming, peculier and chic.” ~ Anthropologie
Madeline Army Jacket-Madeline Army Jacket

“My Father’s collection of military jackets inspired me to create these. Every element is vintage, and I balanced the military world with romantic floral and eyelets.” ~ FB

Gregory by Gregory Parkinson

“British designer Gregory Parkinson has been evolving his namesake line from his adopted Southern California home since its launch in 1996. Fitting, then, that his trademark mix of beachy colors and hand-dyed patterns is the wearable equivalent of year-round sunshine.” ~ Anthropologie
Anona Blouse-Anona Blouse

“Each collection evolves in a different way. It all starts with the fabric or a concept, and both revolve around color.” ~ GP

Cambria Jacket-Cambria Jacket

“I think women who say, ‘I never wear print or color’ will be surprised when they try on these items.” ~ GP

HI THERE from Karen Walker

“Karen Walker has been designing clothes since she made her first circle skirt for her Barbie doll at age seven. She’s come a long way since then, expanding her creations to a full line of clothing, accessories and decor, all based on an underlying love of patterns and color mixed together every which way.” ~ Anthropologie
Basque Floral Dress-Basque Floral Dress

“I start with a moodboard - movie stills, vintage wallpaper, color ideas and the like - and then grow some killer dresses from that.” ~ KW

Koto Bolofo

“Having worked for Vogue, GQ and Vanity Fair and with a slew of books under his belt, Koto Bolofo is justifiably revered as a photographer and filmmaker. Now he can add ‘inspired clothing designer’ to his resume. You cannot help but be enamored by his collection of one-of-a-kind garments crafted from vintage French linen sheets. This limited-edition line is based off those very designs, and it embodies the same reverence for material and craft as his spellbinfing originals.” ~ Anthropologie
Devonshire Linen Dress-Devonshire Linen Dress

“The Anthropologie team and I worked together to get it right, down to the textures of the linen - even the buttons.” ~ KB

O by Organic

Today, he continues to push the envelop with O by Organics, a line of effortless pieces that meld ethics and aesthetics more beautifully than ever.” ~ Anthropologie

"The materials are meant to speak to you first.” ~ JP

Place Nationale

“Husband-and-wife team Amanda and Doug Butterworth got their start selling a curated collection of vintage clothes in London’s Portobello Market; their new line builds upon the encyclopedic knowledge of throwback fabrics they acquired as a result. Each piece is an assembly of antique and vintage materials, and a single design can be a real history lesson: one camisole alone is comprised of antique embroidered French cotton, 70s cutwork tablecloth fabric and vintage English lace trim.” ~ Anthropologie
Reassembled Crocheted Tunic-Reassembled Crocheted Tunic

“Over the years, we’ve hand-picked tens of thousands of vintage items, so we know fabrics, styles and shapes. But this experience has given us a whole new appreciation for them.” ~ AB & DB

Longfellow Shift-Longfellow Shift

“We know almost instictively that we’ll be able to create something beautiful once we’ve got great fabrics.” ~ AB & DB

Crocheted Table Tunic-Crocheted Table Tunic


“Dustin Horowitz has creativity in his bones. With a degree in fashion design from FIT, a fine art degree from Parsons and over a decade of design experience to his name, he launched Pipit in 2007 on an undeniably solid foundation. Each piece from the line marries themes of industrial design and traditional American craft in a wearble, truly modern way.” ~ Anthropologie

Rachel Rose

“Rachel Rose began her career as a print designer, creating stunning motifs for other people’s clothing lines. In the early days of 2011, however, she realized she could create entirely on her own terms and her eponymous line was born. Hand-painted silk is the line’s hallmark, and understandably so: Rose exclusively studied silk painting at FIT, and her aqueous, dappled designs are the captivating result.” ~ Anthropologie
Teresa Silk Tank Dress-Teresa Silk Tank Dress

“I’m in love with silk and color, and with the endless potential the two can have together.” ~ RR

Azure Inkblot Silk Tee-Azure Inkblot Silk Tee


“It’s a lucky flea-market trinket that finds its way into the hands of Leslie Oschmann, an American artisit and designer who now calls Amsterdam home. Never taking for granted what many pass by, she sees old canvas mailbags, discarded fabric scrapes and oil paintings as the means to her artful ends, and transforms each into a work of functional, wearable art.” ~ Anthropologie
Kunstenaar Jacket, Lake Atitlan-Kunstenaar Jacket, Lake Atitlan

“Brainstorming how I will recreate an object and make it more beautiful and useful is a challenge I enjoy.” ~ LO

Kunstenaar Jacket, Gal-Kunstenaar Jacket, Gal

“I appreciate the natural age of an object and how it might continue to age with use and wear and tells its own story as time passes.” ~ LO

Kunstenaar Jacket, Windmill Acres-Kunstenaar Jacket, Windmill Acres

TREASURE by Samantha Pleet

“Samantha Pleet has honed in on the effortless cool of New Yorl’s most enviably dressed. With a degree from Pratt’s fashion program in hand, she launched her eponymous line in 2006 and hass been turning out collections of covetable, feminine-yet-modern clothing since.” Anthropologie
Paradox Dress-Paradox Dress

“This line was inspired by gifts from the earth. The palete is mined from precious metals like gold, silver, gems and oxidized copper.” ~ SP

Oracle Tieback Dress-Oracle Tieback Dress

ZOOLOGIST by Charlotte Linton

“Dueling childhood dreams of becoming a fashion designer or an archaeologist have both come to fruition for Charlotte Linton, the England native whose namesake line is something of a marriage of both. Each collection is based upon the travels of a fictional muse named Ermantrude, a zoologist who fearlessly globetrots and wears her travels on her beautifully patterned sleeve. Linton’s background in print design is on display in every piece, delivering a souvenir of Ermantrude’s imagined sojourns to every wearer.” ~ Anthropologie
Laguna De Paca Dress-Laguna De Paca Dress

“I hope this collection will inject some life into the wearer’s wardrobe and introduce color and humor to one’s daily uniform.” ~ CL
