Fashion and lifestyle retailer Anthropologie is launching its inclusive-sized line, APlus by Anthropologie exclusively online in the UK this month.
The UK debut on March 5 will feature four APlus by Anthropologie collaborations for spring/summer 2021 including Let Me Be, Peter Som, Othilia and Whit Two.
Each of the collections will be available in UK sizes 6-24 and will include an “exciting assortment of styles in Anthro’s signature charm,” explained the retailer in a statement.
With the tagline “Inclusively sized. Exclusively ours,” APlus by Anthropologie was first launched in America in spring 2019, but this marks the first own-brand plus-size collections to be available in the UK.
There are four collections, with Anthropologie’s collaboration with designer Peter Som being a highlight for spring/summer. His 10-piece collection inspired by Greece features separates, dresses, trousers and jumpsuits in Mykonos blue.
Commenting on the collaboration, Som said: “A partnership with Anthro is like coming home – I’ve had such fun working with the team on our collections. Really, we just get each other. Print, pattern, colour – happy clothes – is what I love to do and it’s what Anthro does better than anyone else.”
The other collections include ‘Whit Two’ filled with relaxed summer looks and ‘Let Me Be’ a capsule that aims to celebrate “you, just as you are” with pieces designed in the finest fabrics and embellished with handcrafted details. Key pieces include a print mini dress with puff sleeve detailing, a twist-front top, and a colour-blocked dress.
The final collection is ‘Othilia’ with cascading ruffles, artisanal prints and eyelet flourishes that the retailer states make “these classics-in-the-making all the more modern”. Styles include an eyelet blouse and print dresses.
