Anthropologieâ€™s Earth Day windows display 2014
Every April, the windows of our stores become more than a showcase for artful installationsâ€”they become a platform for our Earth Day efforts, a means to raise awareness of causes near and dear to our hearts. This year is no different, as we pay tribute to the monarch butterfly, whose annual migrationâ€”one of natureâ€™s greatest spectaclesâ€”is at risk of disappearing due to vanishing habitats, extreme weather and increased use of herbicides.
In honor of these small but mighty creatures, weâ€™re transforming our storefronts into fluttering exhibits, crafted of paper, fabric, wood, screens and more. â€œEvery window we work on is special, but our Earth Day ones are even more so because they educate,â€ says our display director Erika S. â€œThe monarchs have such an inspiring story, and that we get to help pass it on through beautiful displays, well that is truly humbling.â€
From basic materials to winged wonders, the creative metamorphosis is happening nowâ€”stop by your local store over the next two weeks to see the windows being made, but first, hereâ€™s a peek at a few already-finished designs.
