Anthropologie introduces “Made in Kind” designer collaborations featuring Karen Walker, Samantha Pleet and more!

Anthropologie is the latest to join the designer collab trend with its own assembly of partnerships, only this time bringing established, lesser known, and first-time designers together in a curatorial series to be showcased online as well as in-store, similar to a gallery presentation.

The rolling collaborations, presented under the name “Made in Kind,” will launch this Thursday, and will feature a hodgepodge of designers: Karen Walker, Gregory Parkinson, John Patrick, Samantha Pleet, Charlotte Linton, Pipit , Rachel Rose and Place Nationale. While some designers will be available at Canadian stores such as Pipit (Ontario), Charlotte Linton (Vancouver) and Samantha Pleet (Toronto), all the collections can be scooped up online.

Keeping true to their arty customer, the collabs also includes collections by artists such as photographer Koto Bolofo, illustrator Florence Balducci and former Anthropologie visual director Leslie Oschmann of Swarm.

We already have a few items on our must-have list (“Treasure” by Samantha Pleet might be our favourite), but with a $120-$300 price range, our list is sure to grow!

New “Made in Kind” collections will be introduced each month and be available for eight to 10 weeks.
