To my delight, last night there appeared this little camper in our lobby! It was created by our display team to go along with our current outdoorsy-themed trends. The frame is made out of bamboo, and they enlisted the help of a local girl out of West Philly to create it! The binding for the joints of the frame is made from old bicycle tires! Other than the frame, everything else on or in the camper is made from paper or cardboard! It’s incredible, and totally adorable! It makes me want to climb right in…. :)

Lately around the home office I’ve been noticing a new trend – everyone’s wearing menswear lately! It looks really great, and people are wearing it a number of different ways – check it out!
(On the far left in the first picture is our other lovable blogger, fpgirl!)

Anthro’s Paper Dress

The other day I was walking through our cafeteria building and I saw this gorgeous dress! It just appeared somehow – I did some snooping and found out it was created by our sister brand Anthropologie…. Stunning!

Awesome! Tetris-shaped tiles for your floor or wall, in any colors you like!


koons at versailles

If you’re not familiar with American art star Jeff Koons, I’m sure the balloon animal at least rings a bell. Koons has been granted a solo show exhibiting in the gardins and interior of Versailles. Check out the New York Times for a slide show and notes on the exhibit.
(There’s also a beautiful photo of the exterior of the palace reflected in one of Koons’ metallic golden sculptures!)

Woah, his work looks so crazy in contrast to the traditional styling of Versailles! I love it. He had an exhibition at the Wexner Center for the Arts here in Columbus, Ohio on my campus at the Ohio State University. I'm fortunate and grateful for the Wex because it brings in such innovative new art. There's a Warhol exhibition going on there right now!

Check out some of the additional photos from our September catalog; the inspiration we titled Rocker in the Park. The amazing photography was done by Cracker Farm.
For our September book we didn’t have to go far from home; we found the best park for any rocker, Central Park. For two days in May we rented a big trailer and parked wherever we could find space, one time right next door to Sheryl Crow’s much nicer trailer!
We arrived each morning before sunrise and ran around like crazy both days looking for new and interesting ways to showcase Central Park, and avoid getting too many bystanders in the shots. We saw Kramer. We had a great group of models and an awesome photography team that worked hard with us to avoid too much green grass for this fall book.
We had dozens and dozens of balloons delivered to us and brought along some fun bikes belonging to our photo team. We just really wanted to convey a fun crazy couple of days in a park in the middle of a big city. It was actually quite challenging; using man-made structures and populated areas always seems to pose more of a creative dilemma than simple beautiful nature shots.
Shooting in New York was fun for us, we even made time to stop by the Free People store. And in case you ever need it, we found out that you can have pizza delivered to you in the park. It was tasty.

it be awesome if Free People would showcase independent & upcoming "amateur" photographers. Perhaps a photographer contest too vs illustrator contest. After all, isn't Free People all about independent artists? Just a suggestion. Fan all the way!

I used to have a bike like the one on the left years ago. I would love to have it now to give to my daughter.

So, I’ve been noticing fringe popping up on lots of our latest accessories, and I’m liking it.
There are so many different ways to fringe it up!
Check out our Fringe Belt.

Here is a shot of our Fringe Moccasin Boots.

We also have a cute Glittered Fringe Scarf.
Finally, we have a Mezzo Fringe Clutch – and that’s not even everything!
Which do you think is the best way to wear fringe?

christina -Sep 13, 2008, 9:44AM
I am SO in love with the moccasin fringe boot but it's not available in my size (6).... will it ever be coming back?!
CC -Sep 12, 2008, 11:09AM
Hey Pruitt! You haven't put up a new wallpaper design for my desktop in awhile!!! I'm still using the last one that was posted and I'm getting kinda tired of it!!! Anything new would be much appreciated!!!

Pomme Chan

Since we’re in the midst of our Fashion Illustration Contest, I’ve had fashion art on the brain lately. The stunning illustrations above are by Bangkok-raised Graphic Designer Pomme Chan. All of her work is really interesting and gorgeous! If you’re looking for somewhere to web-surf, be sure and browse the work on her site – tons of goodies for the eyes!

kate hutson -Sep 11, 2008, 2:51PM
WOW. extremely impressive. so dynamic! keeps the eyes entertained for more than just a quick glance. yum.

steampunk workshop

Maybe the aesthetics of modern technology just isn’t your thing. Do you ever wish your computer looked a little more at home with the rest of your vintage and antique decor? Maybe a Victorian style all-in-one PC would look better. Or a how about a pretty brass LCD frame?
You have to check out the Steampunk Workshop, chronicling one man’s adventures of making the new look old, or the old look different. One of the first project he ever did was outfitting an old school bus, and there is also a tutorial for doing tin etchings on old Altoid boxes.

migration mural

Migration / Part 01 / London / By Hellovon from Hellovon on Vimeo.
This video will show you the installation of a mural at the Truman Brewery in London called Migration. The incredible bird illustrations were done by London-based artist Hellovon. This month, the idea will “migrate” to a second exhibition space, the side of the Epeis Gallery in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Makes me want to fly…
