Break out the bubbly: Anthropolgie has come to Cambridge. Billed as “a destination for the creative, worldly woman”, the US-born brand has just cut the ribbon on what was Cath Kidston on Market Hill.

Loved for its artful curation of everything from clothing, jewellery and accessories to gift and homewares from designers and makers around the globe, a visit to an Anthropologie store is about more than shopping - it’s an experience.

Employing artists to create one-of-a-kind displays for every store, the Cambridge showroom is home to a vast floral installation, 440 hours and 7,000 pieces in the making. Fitting the theme, Cissy Bullock of Wildstems, the South Cambridgeshire cutting garden and floral design studio, is also showing and selling at the store, alongside East Anglian painter Mary Romer, famed for her land and sky-inspired abstracts.

I’ve been a regular visitor to Anthropologie’s online shop for decades, so the thought of being able to browse and buy in bricks and mortar is a real end-of-lockdown reward. First purchase? A bright and breezy dress for sunny summer days.

Anthropologie is at 31-33 Market Hill, Cambridge and anthropologie.com/en-gb
