Port Eliot seems like months ago altho, in reality it was only three weeks back. I still have a huge pile of photos to edit, (which is why I was quite diligent about posting during the festival, as I knew it would take me ages to go through everything), but I wanted to show you the inside of the fabulous Anthropologie tent.
It’s always pleasing to see a big brand come to an intimate event like Port Eliot, and really just get how it all works. Of course it helps that Port Eliot’s hippy-meets-luxe-meets-chattering-classes-meets-art-directed-loveliness atmosphere perfectly matches Anthropologie’s raison d’etre.
Not only did Anthropologie send in their VM team to make sure that the marquee interior reflected their brand with forensic accuracy, but they ran wonderful workshops over the weekend with some of the designers with whom Anthropologie in the UK has collaborated. (More of this later.)
Oh that all tents looked as chic as this one did. We were really quite tempted to just curl up on one of the sofas with our hangovers – , and one of the brand new book releases that were loving placed around the tent. Maybe Saska Graville’s excellent London Style Guide or Mr Norman’s Polpo…
And to add the cherry on the icing on the Anthropologie cake, all the Anthropologie girls looked beyond fabulous.
Many thanks, yet again, to the lovely people at Cornwall’s independent St Austell Brewery, a Port Eliot sponsor, who brought me & Rachel to the festival.
