Post image for A Love For London – From American & British Points Of View

London can have different impacts and hold different feelings for different people. I went around the office and asked a British person and an American person what London means to them, but first here’s what comes flowing back to me when the word “London” is spoken.

I love this article, almost as much as I love London! It completely sums it up for me, so many different people in one place who are literally in love with the place they inhabit, I love the people on the tube who say bless you when you sneeze, I love the trees on every street that blossom in the spring, I love the music scene and the fact you can go out without a plan and have the best night of your life, I love the fact you always meet someone new and exciting, and I mean always, I can't remember a night where I went out in London and didn't end up at least having a random conversation with a stranger, let alone making a new friend, I love the coincidences, for a city of 10 million you would expect not to bump into long lost school friends quite as often as you do, I love the history, and the sunsets, and the pidgeons, and the ridiculous mayor, the free newspapers and the talkative vendors, the multifaceted multicultural face of London is a smiling open beautiful sight. One pet peeve, you talk about the coffee houses of the 19th century when referring to the Troubadour (which incidentally is also another spot of London I adore), I think you mean the 20th century as it was started in 1954 in the 20th century and the same for Jack the ripper of the 1870s, the 19th century. Sorry, I'm a historian and it bugged me.

I see all sorts of crazy goings on when I wander the city streets, in and out of shops and I think 'yep. This is London'. It's a really strange feeling but I fee so complete and at ease in London. Is it possible to actually be in love with a city? Because I think I am.

You can almost feel the sadness of losing summer pushing itself through the words and into your consciousness.

It’s been awhile, so I thought I’d check in with our BLDG 25 blog team to find out even more about this creative, inspiring group of women. Brigette, Jemma, and Julia sat down to answer a few questions about themselves and things they love, and once you read them you’ll have even more insight into what makes our bloggers the people they are. Plus, I love conversations that go beyond small talk to find out really cool, intimate details about individuals you admire, the things that set them apart from others. Read below to find out where my interview led us…Read More

The birds singing in the trees, the smell of the grass, the sound of the wind dancing through the branches of the trees – the park is one of my favorite places to be. Time slows down whenever I’m placed inside its oasis.Read More

This Friday we are opening our second store in Calgary, located at Chinook Centre, and it will feature an all new cottage-inspired store design concept. To celebrate, this Friday we are having a grand opening event!  Read More

Post image for September Catalog Sneak Peek: Who’s That Girl?

Our September catalog was shot by Guy Aroch, who captures model Martha Hunt on the streets of London in a paparazzi-inspired style. Based around the concept of the modern “it girl” whose every move is documented, Martha dodges the camera as she does everyday things like taking out the trash and going to yoga, working on set and going out at night with her boyfriend, played by model Danny Fox. We love this book and the story it tells, and can’t wait for it to drop on Tuesday along with our new site for Free People UK! Here’s a sneak peek. :) Read More

Janet -Jan 03, 2015, 8:58AM
I remember there was a lot of talk on Free People's facebook page when this catalogue came out, with customers expressing concern about Martha's weight. Having seen her modelling other campaigns since then, I believe the concern was well-founded. But Free People just dismissed it; their facebook page admin wrote some bland and defensive comment about how 'they love Martha just the way she is.' THAT IS NOT CONSTRUCTIVE. It's also not constructive to assume that anyone expressing concern merely has body issues, or is jealous, or some other crap. As well as being blatantly untrue, it shuts down debate and becomes a form of apologism for dangerous weight loss. It's not constructive for anybody. Including the models. Martha herself has said: ' For me, it's a relief to have a company that is down with [curves]. Most of the time, you always feel like, "I could be thinner." As a Free People customer, I would like to take this opportunity to remind FP of their responsibilities to both their models and customers. And I hope that if customers express concerns in future, they will be treated with more respect.

What is Free People doing to promote a realistic body image for women? As far as I've seen, not much. HEY, FREE PEOPLE, how about choosing some healthy and curvy models?
