a reader sent me the link to these beautiful photos taken by katie stoops, using some of our clothing! i love the outdoor setting of the photos but i think my favorites are the close-ups because they really show the beautiful details of some of our pieces. check out more of katie’s work here.

the free people items pictured are the stitched boho tank, embellished tube dress, lacey insets dress, ends in sequins dress.

speaking of details

Post image for morocco in the sixties

during the 1950s and 1960s, morocco was a refuge for writers and musicians from abroad, including the rolling stones, jack kerouac and william s. burroughs, who wrote the legendary naked lunch while staying at a hotel in tangier.  morocco was to the rolling stones what india was to the beatles – they traveled there in the late 1960s in search of musical inspiration and found that and much more.  the fusion of berber, african and arabic music had a huge influence on the rolling stones’ sound but they were also enthralled by the atmosphere of the country – especially the somewhat seedy city of tangier – home at the time to spies, smugglers, expatriate aristocrats and writers-in-exile.  they arrived in the british mod style and left in billowing shirts, weighed down by bracelets, necklaces and various trinkets.  about his experiences in morocco, keith richards said “we enjoyed being transported. you could be sinbad the sailor, one thousand and one nights. we loved it.”

the stones were part of a large crowd of swinging londoners who regularly visited morocco in the 60s.  one of the most iconic photos representing morocco and the bohemian culture of the 1960s is of talitha getty, wife of paul getty, shot by patrick lichfield on the roof of their home in marrakech.   our team was inspired to recreate this photo when shooting our catalog in morocco- here is our version!

Interestingt posed pics ...you wouldnt find a native Moroccan woman attired as this gal is ...Nor a native Moroccan man who's wearing jeans under his cloak........I should know. I was a GI stationed there in Rabat and Casablanca Morocco in 1959 - 1960. We flew relief supplies to the victims of the Agadir earthquake in 1960.....quite an experience....

Post image for meet lou!

lou is our guy’s girl – a tomboy with a feminine side who can be sexy without losing her rough and tumble, rock n’ roll edge.   she’s the type of girl who can roll out of bed and throw on cutoffs and a t-shirt and walk out the door without any makeup. the key to her style is being ready to hop on her skateboard or bike at a moment’s notice and disappear in a cloud of dust, because she’s always moving – with the wind in her hair and her beat-up sneakers or boots on her feet.

to capture the gritty style and energy that is lou we went to FDR park in philadelphia, a perfect location with its mix of grunge and beauty.  it winds around a scenic lake with ducks and blossoming trees and ends under the highway with a skatepark, where the sound of wheels grinding on concrete made our ‘lou’ right at home.  here are some of our special shots to give you some insight into the spirit of lou!

scout - she's actually one of our stylists and she's beautiful, she was the perfect lou, especially since she's a real girl!
scout -Feb 25, 2011, 3:20PM
I wish you guys had chosen a better model to fit this role! love the concept of this all but definitely need to find a girl who is truly lou to rock this look!

Post image for twisted classics

She grew up building dams in rivers and climbing trees. She’s been nurtured into one of the boys. She’s adventurous and not afraid of the outdoors.  Spontaneity calls to her and Skate parks are where you’d find her, swinging on bars, teasing the air around her. This girl likes to twist her favorite classics – fedoras, cargos, pinstripes and retro sneakers until they are out lived. Say hello to Lou…

I’ve been trying to get into this mindset ever since I watched the Lords of Dog town film starring Heath Ledger and Emile Hirsch (2005) however I don’t think I have the attitude!

As soon as I heard about this trend I jumped straight to Erin Wasson for inspiration (who wouldn’t… right?)

She’s at the top of the hierarchy when it come to skater cool. I take a note out of her book when it comes to styling.

“Bring your spirit into your style”

items pictured above: 1. pucker up corset cami, levis lvc 1933 baggy 501; 2. short sleeve voluminous v-neck tee; 3. we the free collectors tee; 4. leopard bralette; 5. reed runner by frye; 6. old english boot.

Post image for castles made of sand…

4284588587_e6d1d4980e

about a three hour drive through the desert to the west of marrakech will bring you to the seaside town of essaouira in morocco.  from the pictures you can feel the laid back vibe of a quaint fishing town, but essaouira also has an artistic culture that is very much alive- its medina houses several arts and crafts businesses, the beach is an ideal location for kite and windsurfing, and for the past 12 years the town has hosted the gnaoua festival of world music.  often referred to as the “moroccan woodstock,” the festival lasts four days and attracts close to a half million spectators.  one of the city’s most famous landmarks is the castle made of sand- said to be the inspiration for the jimi hendrix song, although he hadn’t yet visited essaouira when he wrote it. several images from our april catalog were shot in essaouira, and in looking through these photos i can certainly see why our team was drawn there.
