elmo shoes

One of our designers just got home from Hong Kong, and with her came these incredible shoes! She got them at a store there called IT, and said she noticed that “teddy-bear fur” like this is popping up on all kinds of clothing over there! You can bet all of us at the office are just dying to get a pair of furry sneakers like hers- they look so cool and fun!

Come check out the band of one of our accessories designers, Danielle! This Friday night at the Khyber, on 2nd and Market streets in Philadelphia, The Midnight Beat will be playing with Dark Horse & the Carousels and Federale! It starts at 9pm, and looks to be a real good show! Come hang out if you’re in town!

space 15 twenty

Our third We the Free store will open this Friday in an exciting new space on Cahuenga Blvd in LA. More on the We the Free store later, but here is some info about the new space created by our parent company, Urban Outfitters.
A new retail experiment in Hollywood, CA, Space 15 Twenty creates an opportunity for Urban Outfitters to collaborate with creative brands we find inspiring and interesting.
A courtyard leads from each store to an outdoor performance space and adjoining gallery. Both of which encourage designers and artists to become part of a curated environment. Working with neighboring music, film and art establishments, both courtyard and adjoining gallery will present a rotating cast of local musicians and artists.
The Urban Outfitters store will feature one-off installations by a new designer every few months. Alongside the 11,000 square foot Urban Outfitters store, Space 15 Twenty will host a selection of vendors. The revolving brands utilizing these spaces will reflect and compliment Urban Outfitters and present our customers with an overarching view of people and brands which are excited to be aligned with.
Check out the space15twenty for info on the other tenants and the great events the space will host.

I hear that the Urban Outfitters has amazing installations inside the store. I was told about a wall made of prom dresses inside that was a must see. How do they keep doing it season after season!? My staff and I can't wait to visit the space on Friday night!

coloring wallpaper

This looks like so much fun! This wallpaper is perfect for those of us who are tempted to write and draw all over our walls, or who have children prone to do the same. It was created by Jon Burgerman, and can be bought from this store in the UK.
See some other cool wallpapers we’ve come across in our internet travels here, here, and here!
I saw this coloring wallpaper on Freshome.

Aren’t these pictures so pretty, and oozing with the Free People aesthetic? Free People girl Erica, of Santa Cruz California, went to gorgeous Wilder Ranch and took these shots of her two best friends! She was kind enough to send them our way, partly because everyone she knew commented on how “Free People-y” they looked! I agree, don’t you? I especially love the one with the horse in it! Awesome!
To see the rest of the shoot, have a look here on Erica’s site!
Thanks for sharing these with us Erica! They are so beautiful!

I happen to live in San Francisco and contacted Erica to shoot my Senior Collection for Fashion Design. The shoot was last weekend at the Palace of Fine Arts and the outcome is impressive! Check out some of the shots on Erica's blog http://ericasergio.com/home/2009/2/10/davia-schwind-fashion-shoot.html To design for Free People is my dream job! So expect a mail-out soon!

Free People...so, i've seen previous catalogues and of course the photography is beautiful...but this is inspiring and refreshing...I wan't to be inspired by a catalogue not only by the clothes, but through the eye of talent, like this girl. I wish the best for Erica and hope you use someone like her (or her) who is genuine in her love for this art.

yuken teruya paper art

I was introduced to Oh Joy!. The tree shapes are cut from toilet paper rolls and then mounted on dowels on the wall creating the forest and shadows.

Browsing the artist’s site I found the Notice-Forest made with a McDonald’s Happy Meal bag. At first I wasn’t sure what I was looking at. I thought this was the inside of a room, and the McDonald’s graphics were projected with light or something. But the photo is actually take INSIDE the bag, and the tree has been cut out from the top of the bag and stood up inside. It’s amazing!

okay i want my room to be EXCTLY like ALL of this! but one thing i have been searching for is the garlands in the stores. in the San Antonio shop (which i was in a week or two ago) they had the most beautiful garlands or maybe streamers attached to the ceiling and I'm almost certain that they are the same as the ones draped around the top row of socks on the third photo from the top......CAN ANYONE TELL ME WHERE THESE CAN BE FOUND?! or ANY other decor in these fabulously eclectic stores!! thanks so much, Anna

The new intimates catalog brings me to ask where free people gets their fabric. i'm sure they design all of it, but in a perfect world there is a website i can visit and purchase the rose patterned backdrop from the cover of the latest issue, etc. etc.

I love all these different kinds of tape! I was thinking about our post about decorated tape from the other day and did a little search for adhesive tape and found I love sticky tape! It’s a blog which is, as you might imagine, devoted entirely to tape, and it has many cute and cool types of tape featured on it! I especially love the tinsel tape – it gets me in the mood for the holidays!
