underwater

thelightnessofbeing_9.jpg
These images by Alinka Echeverría are just amazing! They are from a series of photos and video that she has done called Lightness of Being, which features, as you can see, stunning shots of synchronized swimmers underwater. I really love that the waterline is at the bottom of the picture – it gives a whole different perspective than one usually sees in underwater photos. Awesome! If you have a moment you should totally go to her site and watch the video – it is like the pictures, only even better – just incredible!

I love this posting of the synch swimmers and reading on and on fell in love with the diversity of your posts and the cleverness of those who work at FP. My daughter who is 17 just bought a little bikini from you guys and after not giving up after it was too small, like the three bears story it came yesterday and fits "just right" so she is happy to both wear the clothing and now I will send her this link. She is a great etsy artist and I am including her url if you like. She designed the cover of the lit mag for her high school, see it on her store"the brain"! I am going to check back often for your posts as they are so cool, love the horses and cookies and wel.. my daughter loves your clothing and so do I. We moved to Sedona from APtos CA where the aptos shoe co first introduced your line to Rita, now she is a life long fan and always checks the site to see what is new. here is her unusual art store Animalgam http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5503205

These two pictures are some candids taken at a shoot we did for next week’s freepeople.com homepage. In the second picture they were trying to avoid getting her tights in the shot so she just pulled them below her knees. Looks more like she couldn’t wait for the bathroom!

Canadian artist Janet Hill remarks in her Etsy store description, “As a result of living in a cold climate for six months of the year, I’ve developed a strong interest in the beauty of interiors.” I can tell, and I love it! Her paintings are so glamorous and soft! Be sure to check out her blog if you enjoy the paintings above, as she has lots and lots of her work posted there!

One of our designers brought the picture below to my attention – it’s so fun to see people out and about wearing FP! It came from a Perez Hilton post about Kate’s new brunette hairdo – but check out her shirt! It’s our Printed Dreamweaver Tank in Purple Sun!

Ryanne, who designed the tank, was really psyched! And what’s extra cute is that she happens to be wearing that very tank, in that color, today! So random!
Here she is being happy and cute below!

These lovely pieces by Eugenia Pardue are in fact paintings! I would have never guessed it – I thought they were molds or something like that. But as it turns out, these are paintings, acrylic on panel. They’re also pretty big! Most of her work is at least 2′ by 2′, or bigger. I’m trying to imagine how she built up the designs with the acrylic paint, because they are so carefully crafted and textured. I’m totally amazed! See more on her site.
Thanks Dear Ada for another great find!

I love this dreamy editorial from Harper’s Bazaar UK that I saw on Coco+Kelley! I especially love all the billowy layers in the first shot – that is an outfit for me!

These pieces by Ulrik Martin Larsen are so carefully made and interesting! They look really intricate and delicate and yet the chains give a lot of them a very tough feel! They’re so inspiring – people have been doing such great things with chains lately! I also really, really like the one in the second picture down because of those little wood fingers along the edges! What do you guys think?

cross-stitch cars

When I first saw these pictures I immediately liked the beautiful cross-stitched design on the cars – but I didn’t realize until I looked a bit harder that the designs are literally cross-stitched into holes in the hood of the car! How amazing! They were created by Lithuanian artist Severija Incirauskaite-Kriauneviciene for Berlin art show Strich Und Faden. Cool, right?
