Man Shops Globe

Sundance's new show Man Shops Globe chronicles the shopping adventures of Keith Johnson, the buyer-at-large for Anthropologie. Traveling the world from London to Tunisia, Johnson is in search of decorative objects, furniture and textiles, as well as artists and craftspeople, bringing back ideas and art pieces for the store’s 123 locations nationwide. It is a clever alliance of travel porn and furniture porn... set your Tivos for Oct 7th at 10pm.

In honor of the show, here are some of my favorite Anthro displays. They don't always have the best clothes (the fit can be weird) but their merchandising is always stunning.

PS Not only does Johnson date Glen Senk, the CEO of Anthro's parent company Urban Outfitters Inc, but according to the New York Times they've been together since they were teens. "'I moved next door to him, at age 9, and the first day I saw him, I fell in love with him,' Mr. Senk said. 'It was otherworldly. I felt sparks all over my body. Literally, I saw stars. He was the kindest, sweetest, most wonderful person. I feel like that 44 years later.'" As for Keith Johnson: "'It took a few years to convince me,' Mr. Johnson said. 'He didn't convince me until I was 12.'" Congratulations, Anthropologie: You are still the most adorable brand in America.
