Habitat's Dramatic A/W Collection 2011

At the start of the summer I headed to preview the forthcoming autumn/winter collection from Habitat - a few days later they announced the closure of all of their stores, bar a handful in central London. As well as these stores, they continue to operate the brand online, which is now owned by the Home Retail Group, so I'll be really interested to see their first collection under the new ownership. Back to this season's offering and we find a range of products designed to help create a modern meets country style space. The collection feels cosy with a classic mix of old and new - and an expanded armchair offering. The copper and oak textures of their 'pantry' offering certainly appeal, and I love the updated Ella armchair in the dot fabric. What catches your eye?

  2. Oooops, my fingers stumbled on the keyboard. Should have written "that" and not "tha" and "too" instead of "to"...

  5. @modern-eve - Thanks for dropping by. The Home Retail Group only bought rights to the brand in the UK, I think, so stores in Barcelona should be staying open, along with the three in London and online. Hope that helps!

  12. See I think their catalogue and stylism is always fantastic, however I never found that the shops were a reflection of the brand creativity. If you look at Anthropology, you get the same vibes online and on the high-street, whereas it didnt happen with Habitat. If their shops were as styled, cosy, creative and inspiring that the photos you've shared with us, I think it would have been a complete different story.
