Post image for 01 magazine group exhibition

we just opened a store in toronto, and for all you readers that live there, here’s an art exhibit definitely worth checking out! it’s a group exhibition presented by 01 magazine – we’ve posted about a couple of the artists involved before (david horvitz, jennilee marigomen) and they’re ridiculously talented. today i wanted to post some of the work of alexander binder because it reminds me so much of our tangerine dream imagery…and it’s just pretty awesome:

I need to look at it when I don't have a headache. It is beautiful but it triggered my migraine further

i picked today’s featured band for a few reasons- their new album came out today, they’re playing at SXSW, and they also happen to have a show in philly tomorrow night!

they are the morning benders, a san francisco band who make sunny melodic pop music reminiscent of the beach boys. the album, big echo, was produced by grizzly bear bassist chris taylor, who helped give the songs a sort of fuzzy, vinyl-like sound. i really like the song “excuses” – check it out below!

the morning benders have a few shows during sxsw – you can find the full list of shows on their myspace page, here. and if you’re in the philly area, you can check them out at johnny brenda’s tomorrow night!

Many thanks for getting some time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and adore understanding much more with this topic. If doable, as you acquire expertise, can you mind updating your blog with far more info? It’s extremely helpful to me come to think of that , i never considered it in that way before.

I really like the song. I"ll have to check out their new album!

Post image for tangerine dream

i am in love with the theme for our website right now – tangerine dream.

“a dreamy trippy notion, like walking on a rainbow…drops of sherbert color pops are drenched in a hazy daze that feels fresh and cool and ready for the sun.”

its time to ditch the winter blues and lighten up with shades of pink, aquamarine, and of course, tangerine …and capture the essence of a beautiful spring morning.

here are just a few of the many inspirational images…

hi luana! i asked our photographer, here's what he said: "I used an old 70's 5-image filter. It can just get very repetitive so you've got to use it sparingly. If you cant find the filter, try shooting through a kaleidoscope, different types of velum, or glass surfaces."
Luana -Mar 09, 2010, 11:35AM
I love that photograph where her face is layered several times. How was that done, was she moving with a slow shutter speed or is it Photoshop?

Post image for canada here we come!

very exciting news! we just opened a new free people in toronto’s hudson bay flagship store – the first fp in canada!

free people officially launched its 1,000 sq. ft. hardshop on the much talked about contemporary floor, which houses brands such as opening ceremony, McQ, LnA, halston heritage, tucker, catherine malandrino, vena cava and doo ri.

reflective of our creative roots, this shop is truly one-of-a-kind.  it is a beautiful blend of modern and vintage, mixing the earthiness of our teak tables and cane globe lanterns, with linear designed wood and metal racks.  our fabulous team of artists worked their magic, painting columns and back walls with gorgeous green flora and fauna, creating that special free people experience that keeps our girl coming back for more!

canada is big country, so stay tuned for more exciting free people launches where hockey may be golden, but sparkles and crochet will always be the way to a girl’s heart.

xx

I also saw a few fp items in the Bay on Rideau st in Ottawa. Would love to see some more.
Nora -Jan 10, 2013, 2:54PM
There is the FP line on St.Catherine's street at The Bay in Downtown Montreal since over a year ago, which nobody seems to talk about for some reason, even though Montreal is one of the world's most fashionable cities! I now live in SW Missouri, where there is no FP stores (or even Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie stores) so I really appreciate visiting The Bay when I fly home :)

what was your favorite dr. seuss book?  mine was always the cat in the hat…i loved thing 1 and thing 2  :)

I like "the Lorax" very much. Theres a quote I thought would go good on this site. My friend told me about it a while ago and we cried when we heard it. "Today you are you that is truer than true there is no one alive that is youer than you"-Dr. Seuss
Marilyn -Mar 03, 2010, 9:19PM
My favorite was The Five Hundred Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins. :D Its the best! Its about a kid who tried to take off his hat for the king but there is always a hat underneath. Most of the book is the king trying to take his hat off.

so last week i asked about some of our cute sandals and the results were very close between the tahoe bootie, mindy beaded, and folklore sandals, but the tahoe bootie sandal came out on top.  those are my favorite too! i think i definitely might have to get them.

this week i’ve been eyeing up our rompers, and i want to know which one you guys like best…
