River Rose

Post image for River Rose

Gentle green river, be kind… from behind the woods you’ll soon be seen…

When Dan Sartain said he’d work with Free People to create a music video, we were so very excited. Dan is a gritty yet playful and magical songwriter from Birmingham, AL, and the opportunity to work with him “at home” became something out of a dream or classic rock song. The backwoods between Birmingham and Tuscaloosa served us well. We made peace with mother nature and unsettled morning skies before accessing a sleepy portion of the Cahaba River, where Dan and a brood of gorgeous ladies – some of whom work at our local Birmingham store – accompanied us on the water in inner-tubes and good fun.

Thank you to all involved for a day straight out of our dreams.

Gorgeous imagery. I love the shots on the carpet, but then I’m always a sucker for rich patterning.

Intensely dreamy. I love the old southern belle look, very cool against the motown feel of the song.
And parasols!!!

What a beautiful shoot. I wish we’d get more pics to see. I bet they take hundreds of pictures and all we see are a dozen or so.

I love the white, dreamy, vintage-inspired, lace-lingerie look that the dresses give off in the video!
