I love the yellow dress in the bottom right! I want it! How can I find it, because I've been looking for it and can't find it anywhere?!

we had so much fun giving names and personalities to the different free people girls! (if you missed that blog post, check it out here). we also loved hearing which girl you all think you are!  so as an extra special treat, we wanted to share this video one of our talented fpgirls made using some select images from our past catalogs – it gives a little more context to each girl: sandy, meadow, lou, candy & ginger!

i’m a mixture of sandy and meadow myself :)

art wall

a couple of weeks ago i got an email from a reader named katie, who wanted to tell me about a website she started called art wall. i wanted to share this cool site and a brief interview with you…

a lover of art with a background in display and visual merchandising, katie always felt that there was something missing from the experience of shopping for art online: the “wow” factor that inspired display can add to the equation. with art wall she saw an opportunity to bring the two together. read on for a brief interview with katie about the website.

wall

what inspired you to create art wall online?

if i think back it was really out of a desire to showcase special picks and finds for a fan-based site i run: savegocco.com.  i wanted a way to feature and highlight my picks:  enter the “studio” room.  it was going to stop there as just a page in the save gocco domain, but then i thought: why not make a whole website with pages dedicated to different rooms in a house?  i have a total crush on art walls, i find them fascinating and think it takes a special skill to create them in a way that looks interesting. i’ve studied them in magazines for years so it was only natural that i used that type of display to highlight multiple pieces of art that worked together…i used my own home as inspiration.

ArtWallMasterBedroomShot

the website features different rooms- an entryway, dining room, master bedroom, etc. – each with a selection of artwork displayed on the walls. viewers can click on the artwork to see an image of the piece, and information about the artist.

i read on your blog that february’s master bedroom had a “love” theme – do all the rooms have themes?
all the rooms have a very subtle theme in the sense that each one has at least one piece that relates to the room.  read: a key lino print in the entryway, the gocco prints in the studio, a sultry portrait in the bedroom.  i don’t love themes for rooms in general but i do appreciate that different pieces may work better in specific rooms.

family-room-set
i love all the artists you feature on art wall – do you select who you’re going to feature, or do people submit their work to you?

the displayed pieces are a mix of artists who have submitted their work to me and artists i’ve invited to display.  i want the site to continue to have a specific look and feel so i think it’s important for me to keep scouring the indie marketplaces for that look.

if you live in austin or are heading there for sxsw, be on the lookout for the wondercraft!

it’s a vintage airstream trailer (named “stella”) stocked with arts & craft supplies! the wondercraft is the brainchild of four creative ladies who had a goal of bringing supplies to wherever there was a need for artistic expression.  they offer  mobile classes, parties and events and keep their trailer stocked with a unique selecton of inspirational products.  i love it! such a great idea, and the vintage trailer just makes it even better :)

Post image for thursday poll – edition 85

last week’s poll was all about feather accessories and the winner, with 28% of the votes, were the lovely feather earrings – nice choice!

this week we have an awesome selection of patchwork items that i am loving…i think it’s really cool how a couple of these styles are one-of-a-kind – each with their own unique wash and patches of fabric collected by our designer in india. which do you like best?

Post image for flower girl

our lazy daisy floral jumpsuit made an appearance on cocorosa’s blog today!

she says, “i simply couldn’t resist the free people throwback romper. i love the bohemian vibe and it’s so easy and comfortable to wear… i could totally visualize myself standing between meadows and wildflowers…… hmmmmmm summer…..”

i love how she’s paired it with a vintage blouse underneath and platform shoes. she looks like she stepped right out of the seventies!

you can find the jumpsuit online, here.

flower girl -May 28, 2010, 2:28AM
Hey this romper is really comfortable and easy to wear .I have tried this before it is really easy and comfortable to wear having full sleeves and this is specially for winter i had tried this in winter season... really nice

Post image for march catalog drops tomorrow!

…and it’s a beauty.  says our creative director: “we wanted to keep it simple on a set rather than on location because we wanted the clothes and the outfits to shine on their own.”

and shine they do- this book makes me so excited for spring flowers and warm sunshine. i could totally see myself wearing any one of these outfits at a concert or music festival!

i’m dying over that outfit on the far right in the middle – the flare jeans, ruffle top and headband – sooo cute. shop the march catalog here!

Post image for fp loves…sarah lewis

sarah, a long time member of the free people family, used to work with us here at the home office as an accessories designer, but more recently she has launched her own line of jewelry.  she has a shop in philadelphia called adorn, and her work has won several awards and has been featured in juried shows and exhibitions.  we are so excited to welcome her back as a featured jewelry designer!

a lover of nature, sarah was introduced to metalworking and lapidary (the process of taking raw materials like stones, minerals and gemstones and transforming them into decorative items) while living in arizona.  she loves crystals and minerals and creating simple settings that showcase the natural beauty of the stones, as well as combining materials like glass, silver and stones in unique ways. the result is a small-scale wearable sculpture that is earthy and bohemian, but modern and fashionable.  the use of raw, earthy materials, stones, feathers and dream catchers make her jewelry a perfect fit for the natural, free-spirited girl.  sarah appreciates the preciousness of jewelry, and most of her pieces are one-of-a-kind, making them even more special.

sarah also draws inspiration from everything around her and everything she does, including fashion, travel, music, her family and friends – we are inspired by her and all that she has become!

check out sarah’s jewelry featured throughout the march catalog, and on our website.

shes on etsy too. :)
marrie -Mar 10, 2010, 3:31PM
Seems a bit overpriced to me. I've seen better pieces on ETSY.COM for more reasonable prices. Beautiful nonetheless.
