Anthroparadie

At Anthroparodie, we provide the elite and fashionably adventurous dreamers and artists with an illusion of a Bohemian lifestyle, while still promoting bourgeois decadence. Offering found vintage items that we design ourselves (and assemble in sultry third-world locales) our 153+ retail shops are a one-of-a-kind boutique.

Here’s a thought: I’m probably not alone in that a lot of my cultural exposure comes first through its being parodied. When I want to catch up on the news, I will watch back episodes of The Daily Show. If I want to learn about pop culture, I scan places where people can comment cynically.

Sometimes, I reflect that I don’t know who the first-order cultural consumers are.
