november catalog chapter three: the sketchbook

Post image for november catalog chapter three: the sketchbook

“beauty begins when pencil hits paper… the sketch comes alive with swatches and trims, transformed into an enchanting ensemble. the muse is awakened. each design idea is created with the beauty of the free people girl in mind. she’s special, one of a kind.”

this is my favorite section of the book. i love the simplicity of the layout – studio shots against a white backdrop, highlighted by sketches of the designs and swatches of fabrics to draw you in.  i adore the little sketches – i wish i could draw like this!

swatches

this section features models suvi koponen and jessica mau, who were photographed in a new york studio by the amazing dan martensen – he also shot our february 2010 catalog in california and our april 2010 catalog in morocco.  these are two of my favorite shots in the entire book:

his portraits always manage to exude so much grace and simple beauty.  here are some from his portfolio that i love:

So pretty, and thanks for always representing your photographers.
It’s the best, they totally deserve it.
