i was so excited to discover some new collages by brandi strickland the other day…i love her work! she uses mixed media, paint, ink, colored pencil and other materials to create these incredible collages that are like little worlds full of stories. these are from her latest series, “the other is looking in on you.”
It’s always such a treat to see the pups of Home Office that the girls of Free People Brooklyn thought we’d introduce some of our local customers! All dogs are welcomed with shakes, treats, water, and love :)
Lalo! (He’s recovering quite nicely)
Waffle loved our mannequin outfit so much he collapsed in front of it :)
Huahua (as in Chihuahua) and mom!
Lemon (with Huahua in background – they’re best friends!)
Last but not least, Chewy!
so cute! i love all their names…especially waffle :) thanks for sharing ladies!
Yesterday was such a lovely day. the temperature had dropped a little from last week’s heat wave, and there was a cool breeze in the air making us all dreamy. Light crochet piece wear, great cover ups and fun jeans were perfect for the ideal weather.
While our buyer and lingerie designer wore the perfect cover-ups – a chiffon button up shirt tunic and a one shoulder dress.
It was sure a day dreaming day at the office yesterday!
“sweet as can be, she shows off her inner romance with pretty neutrals and feminine lace styles. dreamy sheer fabrics and off the shoulder shapes embrace her soft, sexy demeanor on the haziest summer days.”
i may be a “lou” girl but i still love our pretty in pink trend on our website right now- the shots are so beautiful and calming! which of these items from the collection is your favorite?
behind the scenes pics from our june e-catalog shoot here at the navy yard in philly! as i’ve told you, day one we shot with martha hunt in our web studio, with her boyfriend as hair stylist. it was such a fun day- he was doing the coolest stuff with her hair, and martha is always a blast to be around – we love her!
our senior photographer showed us this cool camera trick – tape a piece of cardboard over your camera lens with the tiniest little pinhole in the middle:
the result is this cool ghostly effect:
day two we worked with andreea diaconu and shot outdoors in the wilderness of the navy yard :) there is a lot of abandoned land down here that used to be used for military barracks and such, so we went to one of the fields and had a pretty entertaining time fending off deer ticks and tending to a few cuts and bruises… andreea was a trooper and looked beautiful as she danced amidst the grass.
group huddle around the computer to review shots :)
so much inspiration around the office today…the paint splatters are the floor of our dye room, i think it’s so cool. and one of my co-workers made that amazing bracelet in the last pic – would you guys be into a tutorial on how she made it?
