springtime collages

These collages by Anna Kunz may not be intentionally spring-y, but they sure do look wonderfully springtime to me! I love the colors she used, as did Dear Ada, where I saw the collages! She actually painted the papers first, then cut them up to make the collages. They’re so appealing…

fabric easter eggs

Believe it or not, Easter is already around the corner, and Retro Mama made these awesome little fabric Easter eggs! I love them! Even better, she posted a how-to make them on her blog – it looks like it will be really easy! Worth checking out if you want to make some cute Easter treats!

Hi Free People, Im from the UK and I love your brand! I am currently studying Fashion Marketing at University and I have chosen to look at Free People for my next assignment. I wondered if you could help me with my research and give me some ideas about your target consumer and also about the brands tone of voice ? If you could provide me with any infomation it would be really helpful and very much appreciated, Thanks, Charlie

I can hardly believe these are line drawings, they’re so detailed and patterned! They are the work of Japanese artist Kosuke Ikeda, who uses gel ink ball point pens to create these unique pieces. He has many other visually interesting works on his site as well, worth checking out!

blow up hoodie

How about this hoodie made partially from a blow-up doll by Mama Anders? I first noticed it because I thought it was funny to have a face on the back of your head, I didn’t realize it was a blow up doll until looking closer.
Mama Anders: I customize existing tracksuit tops with parts of the blow-up dolls…These dolls are so ugly and vulgar that turning them into something beautiful has become a challenge for me. The doll is a means to convey something else. Interesting!

Hello terrific blog! Does running a blog such as this require a large amount of work? I have virtually no understanding of computer programming however I had been hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyhow, should you have any recommendations or techniques for new blog owners please share. I understand this is off topic nevertheless I just had to ask. Thank you!

Running the Numbers is an interesting set of photos by photographer Chris Jordan, in which each picture has a specific quantity of a mass-consumed item. For example, one photo features fifteen million sheets of office paper (five minutes of average paper use), and another shows 106,000 aluminum cans (about thirty seconds of can consumption). As you might imagine, in real life some of these pictures are huge, like 10 feet by 25 feet! Below are a couple of shots from the set; see more here, they’re amazing!

Okay so I know this is slightly old, but I just found out a little bit ago that Christian Siriano, who won Project Runway a while back, designed a bunch of shoes and bags for Payless ShoeSource! Those are some of them above, and for only 25-45$ a pair, they look darn awesome! I’m pretty into this – and I think I will have to get a pair of the chained up shoes in the upper right corner. What do you guys think? Like or no?

Lindsey -Apr 08, 2009, 2:12PM

inside her closet!

Check out this cool video in which model Noot Seear shows off the inside of her closet! She has so many awesome items – I can’t get over it! She has very ‘boy’ taste – lots of plaids and studs, chains, leather, distressed denim – she’s like a We The Free poster girl! And speaking of, you may recognize Noot from our current catalog – she’s in it a whole bunch!
Enjoy!

Pruitt mentioned a Bleach Black DIY yesterday, and of course we love Kristin and Val! So we are a little sad that we don’t live in LA. The Bleach Black girls will be hosting a DIY session at Space 15 Twenty this Sunday! I hope someone gets some pictures!
If you go, make sure to stop by our We the Free store and say hello to the girls.

I adore these prints by Joseph over at Biscuitlove! Our Web Marketing Manager, Heather, bought the top print the other day and hasn’t stopped talking about it! I can’t blame her, they’re all so cool!
