looking through our january catalog, i’m sure more than a few of you were wondering… who’s the handsome guy? his name is gauthier and he is a french model – our team found him on the street! we asked him to give us the insider scoop on his favorite places to eat and hang out in paris.
have you guys checked out our january lookbook, featuring french blogger miss pandora? i love it – it doesn’t hurt to have the beautiful city of paris as the backdrop :) which look do you guys love most?

i’m heading to new york tomorrow for our april catalog shoot and i am beyond excited – the photographer will again be the amazing guy aroch and the model is sasha pivovarova! we may have a few other tricks up our sleeves as well…;)
i will check in from time to time and maybe give you a little sneak peek so stay tuned…
ever wish you could take a peek inside the home of a fashion blogger? i always imagine what their homes look like, what they surround themselves with and what inspires them – the way people decorate their place is so indicative of their personality – i love checking out peoples’ music and book collections in particular :)
our stylists snapped some photos at louise ebel’s home in paris and isn’t it charming? i love the little knick knacks everywhere – you can tell she’s a sentimental person who holds on to gifts, treasured items and dried flowers, which i love! i’m the same way.
in order to capture the magical feel of paris for our january lookbook, our stylists returned to the city to shoot it with french blogger louise ebel, also known as miss pandora! a parisian beauty with striking red hair and eclectic style, she wears the clothes from our january book perfectly. here are some shots of our stylists in paris, and behind the scenes of the lookbook shoot, which was photographed by louise’s friend chloé le drezen who often takes the photos for her blog.
Leopard is the type of print I have a love/hate relationship with. I can’t decide… I look at it and think naaaaaaaaaah, and then my conscious slaps me in the face and says “hang on a minute this can be cool”. Then, I bounce around with ideas of how to wear it.
I’m consciously seeing it everywhere lately, and I think it’s growing into a big trend.
I think the way I would wear it would be… in chiffon. It would have to be muted. If I were to go bold with the print it would have to be in sneak peek accessories.
I like seeing people wearing chiffon leopard maxi dresses and shirts too. Ahhhhh, see my mind is all over the place with this print.
I’m very intrigued to see if any of you Fp girls would wear animal print and if so how??
it’s a miserable day in philly and after thawing my car out of a block of ice i am stealing the energy and warmth of these behind the scenes pictures from our latest special shoot. the shoot was for the mixed print trend on our website right now – we love how fresh this trend feels going into spring. to get the amazing special shots our team went to the home of our creative director, which they turned into a bohemian lounge full of rich prints and bold colors. looking at these photos (taken by our talented videographer) my breath was taken away…they look like they’re in a caravan on their way to a festival… with puppies of course :)
so yesterday i was walking around the building taking random photos and saw our office coordinator wearing this adorable scarf as a turban. i’ve seen people wear scarves like this before but i’ve never been able to figure out how to do it – luckily she was kind enough to show me!
if the scarf is square, start by folding it in half into a triangle shape. this scarf was particularly large so she folded it over a little bit to make it smaller.
next drape the scarf over your head with straight edge at the back of your head and the triangle point hanging in front (it’s ok if it hangs over your face, you can fix that later).
take the ends in your hands and bring to the front as pictured, and make one knot at the front of the head:
wrap the remaining fabric back around your head and tie in a knot at the back:
tuck the knot and extra fabric underneath the turban, and do the same with the fabric hanging in the front.
voila! thanks for the tutorial, A.!
now i just need the loving leopard scarf so i can re-create this look:
