yesterday the beautiful chantal of cocorosa just so happened to be at the urban headquarters in support of her friend who is a shoe designer, so we invited her to stop by the free people office! she is such a lovely person and i always admire her style. i had a great time hanging out with her and playing dress up – she picked some of her favorite items and modeled them while i took photos!
last week i asked which of our 3 trends for fall you loved most out of 70s groupie, sports utility and underwear as outerwear. 54 % are digging the underwear as outerwear trend, 29% 70’s groupie and 17% sports utility.
Yesterday here at the office the lovely ladies from our NY showroom stopped by for one of our meetings.It’s always so lovely when they come to visit us as they bring so much energy with them.
Coming from one of the biggest fashion capitals in the world — NY — they always turn it up a notch when it comes to style!
My eyes were drawn to this perky ensemble…
Her look reminds me of a slightly hippified Jane Birkin while the glasses give her a modified Annie Hall Look.
Here shes been pretty creative with our Free People clothes. She’s wearing one of Fp floral rompers with the crochet top worn casually over the top and… why not, a little peek-a-boo of our lace bandeau.

fall picks by fp julia:
for fall i am loving basic items that i will LIVE in – skinny cords, thermals, maxi skirts or dresses and a cozy scarf and beanie. i am also longing for those shearling-lined boots and an amazing leather jacket!
bewitch my fall by fp jemma:
for fall i’m into dark colours, lightened up a little by silver jewelry. I like to be comfy when its cold so no heels… it’s all about the boots and sneakers adding a little sensual factor with peeps of lace to my outfit.
now go start creating your collections right here! have fun!
good morning! let’s get right to the thursday poll… this week we’ve been telling you about some of the trends we love for fall, so i thought i’d ask which of these trends you all are most excited about!
This feels really new for FP, although we’ve always loved our comfy, easy, beachy pieces, we recognized this season that they could be worn in a cooler more edgy way.
How we’ll be wearing it
There’s a street style feeling to this trend, so it’s really about wearing this look with your own attitude and plenty of confidence. The key item is the knit pant, but styled up so they don’t look like everyday joggers. We love them cropped at the knee and worn with a wedged statement shoe or chunky military boot for a fashion twist.
The fabrics are super soft and in muddy heathery colors that feel like the end of summer and have that cozy feel to take you into fall. It’s slouchy and sexy so we are loving the oversized tops and sweaters and anything worn off the shoulder to get this look spot on.
From maxi length and shaggy coats, mesh and boudoir details as outterwear, and fashion’s new sporty mood, these are Free Peoples trends to get to know this Fall. What are they? How to wear them? here’s where to find out…
We want to inspire you before Falls sneaks up upon us
Here’s details from the people behind the scenes:
Why we love it
“We’re all excited about the maxi length and believe it’s gonna be HUGE for A/W 10, whether its dresses, skirts or trousers, It’s our bohemian girl and a very traditional free people trend that we are excited about”
How we’ll be wearing it
“We love it updated into fall with shaggy fur coats and platforms or clogs. It totally reminded us of Penny Lane from the movie Almost Famous. We wanted to update our Boho roots with a bit of rock and roll and so we love this trend to mix in cool graphic tees, beaten up leather and worn in jeans. Like shes been hanging out on a tour bus all summer with the band and is coming home with an eclectic trunk full of clothes she picked up on the way. Jewelry is really strong in here, especially rings on every finger and long pendant necklaces have a 70’s hippy vibe about them that’s always cool”
Stay tuned for two more trends we’re loving right now!
in the time i spend searching the web, i find a lot of really amazing artwork… but every once in a while i stumble upon an artist who really blows me away. this is one of them. i am completely in love with eibatova karina‘s work… not only are the images beautiful and exquisitely detailed, but the messages behind her work make it even more meaningful to me. plus i’m a sucker for pretty much anything that has to do with john lennon…
the last two are from a series called “trees make us feel better.” they really do make me feel happy! view more of her work here.
