Post image for August in Venice with Guy Aroch: Catalog Sneak Peek!

Our August book was shot in Venice, Italy by the one and only Guy Aroch, featuring models Marloes Horst and Darla Baker. It is romantic, dreamy, sophisticated and full of intrigue – everything I imagine Italy to be. The book drops next week, and here’s a little preview!

Post image for FP Spun Houston Style

Check out these amazing photos from our Houston Galleria store girls, showcasing the FP Spun line! The photos were taken by Houston Galleria’s senior store manager of the assistant manager, and they did such a beautiful job! The photos really draw attention to the delicate details of the Spun pieces and the model looks gorgeous :)

The FP Spun Daily Chord Pointelle Tunic worn with the Kelsey Mule Wedge and lots of layered necklaces.

So beautiful!! View all FP Spun.

I love to see the shots of the people that wear free people everyday. Now, if you could just get these people to actually help you when you go into the store, that would be great. I've shopped both locations in Houston, and both times not ONE associate actually acknowledged me and offered to help in any way. Such a contrast to the spirit of free people....... Just sayin... Show some love ladies!
paola -Jul 26, 2011, 8:22PM
I love these pics!!! I love to see the clothes in people thta are not necessarily models and in natural light...it really gives you a sense of them- and they are gorgeous!!! I want it all! great job FP! Love FP Spun! It's just a little pricey to what I can afford...

Post image for From our Catalog Team: Shooting in NYC

Our catalog team sent along some more photos to give you guys a little peek at what they’ve been up to! Enjoy :)

We arrived in New York City on the 19th and had a nice bonding dinner to start the shoot off right at Frankie’s on the Lower East Side. We stayed at The Bowery – the rooms are beautiful and some have lovely private terraces. We got up early the next morning and headed to Splashlight Studios where we were shooting with one of our favorite photographers, Guy Aroch, and model Julia Stegner. She is very beautiful and even more so behind the lens! I love the 60’s Marianne Faithfull vibe she brings to the table and felt really inspired by it. During the shoot we listened to Carly Simon and munched on Sushi. It was a fun shoot and the perfect time to be in NYC – while there was a stifling heat wave in Philly, New York had a cool breeze circulating the summer air. It was a great shoot, we are all very proud of it and can’t wait for everyone to see!

i love her cute, off-duty style!

Although I like the catalogs where there is an actual place you go, like the Hawaii catalog, or the Texas catalog, as opposed to the studio shoots, I am looking forward to seeing the boho style you have set up for fall in the August catalog. The model is too cute! I love the first picture of her. She has such a relaxed, laid-back, casual style, and I love her shorts! The place you guys stayed with the terraces is not too bed, either! xoxo

Post image for FP Spun by Free People

A couple of weeks ago we introduced you to our new line of specialty pieces called FP Spun. The line features garments made with fine Italian yarns, shiny silk blends and nubbed soft linens, accentuated with intricate jacquards, stitching and details. The pieces range from short and flirty to slinky and long to shaped and sculpted, each portraying a different personality. Learn a little bit more about spun and the lovely designers in this video!

paige -Jul 26, 2011, 8:51PM
this is a pretty amazing concept, I love the fact that you are working with luxury materials and vendors. Its nice to see more conceptual crochet and knitwear instead of the typical vintage inspired pieces..definitely stepped it up a notch in my book :)

Post image for Style File: Edition 3

Quirky, creative, lovable, giggly, cool…these are all words to describe the assistant designer for Meadow here at Free People who is also this week’s Style File Girl. And boy does this girl have style. I envy how creatively cool she looks each day, and it never appears to take her much effort.  She alters pieces in unique ways, thrifts like it’s her job (okay, it partly is), and throws in unexpected extraneous items to pull an outfit together. It’s tough to explain why exactly it all works, so I’ll just let the photos speak for themselves. Check out what she wore this week…

Wednesday

thursday

Even though her look changes from day to day she certainly has her favorite accessories. I’m a big fan of the watch she always wears.

IMG_2129

And what about those tattoos?

Her favorite is the acorn (far left) inspired by her childhood self who made her grandmother watch Peter Pan twice a day, every day. The acorn is from the version with real people in which Wendy asks Peter for a kiss, but since he’s just a boy, he doesn’t know what that is and gives her an acorn. Later on in the movie she’s struck down by an arrow, but you later come to find out the arrow pierced the acorn instead. It saved her life.

tattoos

The creative spirit that she uses in her appearance is just as apparent in her job as the assistant designer on team Meadow. She pumps out awesome piece after awesome piece, often inspired by vintage clothing that she picks apart, blogs, and her coworkers. This Wednesday she was working on updating sketches she presented for setup to meet the buyers’ and head designers’ requests. She now has to show the garments in flat form along with fabric swatches, body, and any artwork to be used in the piece. At the end of it all, she puts it together into a nice presentation so buyers can decide exactly what they’ll buy and how much.

The coolness doesn’t stop there. Her work space and home are just as one-of-a-kind as the outfits she wears and the creativity she brings to her job. I mean, who has a pregnant Barbie to accompany them at their desk every day? Safe to say, the space she inhabits is never boring.

And of course, I wouldn’t leave you all without a fun questionnaire. Time to let the woman speak for herself

Post image for Office Style: It’s HOT

It is hot as hell here in Philadelphia today – advisory warning and all. It’s the kind of heat that makes you not even want to get dressed, but, of course, that’s not socially acceptable. One has to put something on to go to work, and these ladies (and gentleman) did quite a good job of it today. Today’s office style is all about how we’re battling the heat – crop tops, billowy fabrics, light colors, and shade. How are you staying cool?

Post image for Thursday Poll: Vintages Loves Graphic Tees & Tanks

I’ve been on the hunt. The hunt for the perfect vintage graphic tee that is. Little did I know – there’s a whole pile of them sitting in the vintage loves section on our website – and they’re selling out fast!

Vintage tees have become a must-have wardrobe staple over the past few decades – taking on a role as the perfect throw on item since there are so many ways for them to be worn. They can look cool and relaxed, edgy and vintage, all at the same time. Throw one on with denim shorts for a casual look, or pair them with (vegan!) leather pantswedges, and loads of jewelry for a night out.  Now, just to decide which one I like best…..help me out?

Where did that polka dot blouse come from? It is not the new mink pink one because the dot's are too small and too many. I love her shirt and would love to know where I can pick one up to wear with my ivory scalloped hem lace shorts!!!

also the polka dot top is super cute!

Post image for Boutique Fashion from Jen’s Pirate Booty

Calling all “sandy” girls! We have an exquisite collection of pieces by Jen’s Pirate Booty on our website right now that scream summer and beach!  The timing is perfect as we just launched our Endless Summer shop and these pieces are the epitome of summer styles that can be worn and loved all year long.  In addition to being the perfect beach cover-ups, they can be styled in different ways to wear as casual weekend attire or even dressed up to wear out on the town.

Our buyer told me that she fell in love with the brand because of the soft, flowy fabrics and amazing silhouettes that are bohemian but in a modern way.  The pieces are undeniably summery, right down to the fabric they are made in – light and gauzy, or peek-a-boo patterns with sun-like shapes. Most pieces come in one or two sizes, with the idea that they will look different on each girl that wears them.

On that note- here are some of our home office ladies wearing Jen’s Pirate Booty in ways that could totally work beyond just the beach!

The perfect outfit for a casual summer day. Denim cutoffs and the janis crop top – the color of this one is amazing!

jens-pirate-booty2

The warrior robe looks awesome worn over top of a dress and would look just as cute over a bathing suit on the beach when you need to cover up!

jens-pirate-booty3

Our buyer loves the eclipse babydoll tunic because the silhouette is unexpected in this type of fabric.  It looks adorable styled with cowboy boots and a floppy hat!

jens-pirate-booty4

The poetic kaftan is my favorite – I love the dusty rose color and the fabric is so light and soft! It looks really cute with one of our floral bralettes peeking out from underneath.

jens-pirate-booty5

The treasure tank is super cool – it has two very long tails on either side that you can leave hanging or knot together to create different shapes.

jens-pirate-booty

shop all jen’s pirate booty.

which of these pieces is your favorite?

Ramona Cruz -Jan 05, 2012, 6:43PM
Love these looks as beach cover ups ! just throw on a pair of sandals with any one of them and youre set for a day at the beach and shopping after!
BohoQueen -Jul 19, 2011, 10:47PM
I love these, but some of them I would have a hard time getting myself to wear. My favorites are the Janis Crop Top (the color is so refreshing!), the Warrior Robe (it is so flowy and gorgeous, I almost have no words to describe it!), and the Treasure Tank (so unique and fun!). Oh, and BRING BACK THE GAUCHOS!!! xoxo
