The above photos are scans of the film from the December catalog. And some info from Elsa from the creative team…
For the December catalog shoot we decided to go to Bermuda. We used a really great production team called Volcanic Productions , who put on all kinds of music events and photo shoots in Bermuda. Crackerfarm shot the book for us, and the greatest part of the shoot was getting to take photos underwater.
One of the guys from the production team (James Cooper) takes beautiful underwater shots so he was able to lend us the waterproof casing that goes around a regular camera to shoot underwater. It was challenging to get good poses, faces, hair, and clear shots of the suits underwater, but it was REALLY fun.
Bermuda is a really cool place, and catching amazing sunrises and sunsets was so easy because there is a lot of beauty to be had there.

I love these photos by Rune Guneriussen – I can’t stop looking at them! The phones look like they are watching for phone predators… And the first picture is so perfect for wintertime, the lamps look so cozy and cute in the dark of winter!
See more pictures here on Livejournal, and even more on Rune’s site!

chandelier of excess

This chandelier is intense, right? But so lavish! Designed by Erickson Beamon, the Glam Rock Chandelier costs $32,500! Out of my price range for sure, but it is definitely cool to look at! Read more about it here, on Yatzer.

Dreaming of vacation? Get ready for the beach! Our new December catalog is online and will be in your mailbox soon. Check back for behind-the-scenes info to come…

Hi Mushroom Moon! Thanks for your comment! We did an entry a while ago about our relationships with our factories. You can get some first hand information from one of our designers that worked from Hong Kong. View it here.

Planning on going to a Free People store soon? Starting this Monday, December 1st, customers who bring in their old Free People shopping bags to use when they shop will receive a free gift! You could receive a Free People Measuring Tape, a set of Free People Hair Clips, or one of our other fun treats! (Note: One free gift per customer per day.)
This promotion will run until we are out of gifts, but we would like to encourage our customers to always reuse their bags each time they shop at Free People!

Hellooo fp blog! I was wondering - do your boutiques ever display independent artists works up in the store? I am a photographer and I do a lot of alternative process techniques that revolve around nature. I was just picturing them next to all the beautiful artworks of clothing fp offers and got excited, so I thought I'd ask!

FP Holiday Playlist!

We have yet another fun holiday diversion for you! I recently went around and asked everyone here at the home office for their favorite holiday or wintertime songs! We have put them together on a playlist for you, which you can access by clicking here. Please note however, that you need to have iTunes installed on your computer to be able to view the playlist. We have been experimenting with different ways to put up playlists for you, so we of course welcome any feedback!
At any rate, check out the playlist! It includes over 30 songs, including this awesome classic sung by Eartha Kitt below…

It’s the day after Thanksgiving, and the holiday season has officially started! We are already getting excited, and our graphic designers have created a little holiday card for you to use! Click here to be taken to a page where you can download and print it! Once you print it, simply cut along the dotted lines, then fold it in half, and half again! Presto- cute little holiday card!

This is the most adorable card. I will print mine out by the hundreds! I love the Free People hand-drawn style!

carrot flowers

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I had a fabulous one, with friends and fun, and of course, plenty of delicious food! We did not, however, have these cute carrot flowers! Yum! They would make about any dish using carrots look a bit more special! I saw them on The Kitchn – for real simple step-by-step instructions, click here!

In preparation for Thanksgiving tomorrow, we passed around a couple sheets of paper and drew or wrote down what we are thankful for, just for fun! The papers ended up looking really cool, and it was neat to see what everyone put!
What are you thankful for?

it's so nice to give thanks...

What is your job here at FP?
web producer/nerd/sarcastic jerk
What is your current state of mind?
I sort of feel like crawling under a rock today, but also I’m excited about Thanksgiving.
Who are your heroes?
Conan O’Brian. Bob Dylan. I know I have plenty, but my mind is blanking.
If you could choose what to come back to life as, what would you be?
I might be a hawk, so I could fly but not be afraid of being eaten. Or maybe a gibbon. So I could sing all day and swing through the trees.
What or who is your greatest love?
My mom.
Name one thing necessary to your happiness.
Animals, hugs, pizza – oh crap, that’s 3 things – oh, and laughing, sleeping… I need a lot of things.
What do you hate the most?
People who are unable to see the world though other people’s eyes. Also, people on cellphones.
What would the name of your band be and what genre? What instrument do you play in this band?
“expired medicine” – I don’t remember why, but I remember deciding that. I’d play the drums, even though I don’t know how to play…
What color are you?
What is your motto?
It might sound hackneyed, but really I believe deeply in The Golden Rule. Although “Get Over It” is a close second.

This is actually part of an advertising campaign for HSBC Bank! Their ad company had an aerial photo of city skyscrapers attached to the bottom of this pool, in attempt to raise global warming awareness. I just love the idea! It makes me wonder what other pictures would look really cool at the bottom of a pool!
Find a tiny bit more info here.
