rice paddy crop art

These amazing images in rice crops are located in Japan! They are made with careful planning, strategically planting different colors of rice plants so that they grow into a picture. The town of Inakadate in particular is known for its skill in creating rice art, but you can find rice pictures all across the country in the summertime! Check out many more photos of amazing rice paddy crop art on Pink Tentacle.


I love the colors in these dreamy collages by Eleanor Wood. And I wish I dreamt of polar bears!

You may be aware that haute-couture fashion designer Christian LaCroix recently filed for bankruptcy. However, yesterday he showed a really lovely and rather dark collection in Paris in what might have been his last show. Sad! Reportedly a lot of people cried at the end of the show! Still, the clothes were gorgeous! Check out many more of the looks here on Jezebel and here on The Cut!

petal umbrella

Above is a prototype of the cool Calyx Umbrella, which is inspired by flower petals! It’s ribs expand sideways as well as radially, and it looks really cute too! Check out the little video they’ve made for it!

Such a clever idea! Make a bit of a larger one, and I’ll take it!

I need to get my hands on these awesome laser-cut acrylic rings by Plastique! The set comes with the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Eiffel Tower, Big Ben, and the Space Needle! See more pictures here. Fun!

It's not a "space needle" That's the CN Tower, in Toronto - Canada.

July Catalog!

Hooray! Our July catalog drops today, and should be hitting your mailboxes any time now! We are so excited about this book because of the wonderful photographers we used! Lina Scheynius is a Swedish photographer who shoots with a free form, sometimes using polaroids! The more close-up studio shots in the catalog were taken by Crackerfarm Photographers, (who often work with us in our web studio as well) and these shots focus on the apparel that we love!
The locations we used for this book were an old brownstone house, and a photography studio in New York, NY. The old brownstone had fabulous old wallpaper, so the walls became a lot of the backdrops in the catalog!
As for apparel themes, jackets are a big part of this book – we love them layered with many items, or even over a simple top or dress!
Click here to check out the online version of the catalog!

it seems like FP is trying to go in a more edgy punk direction. this catalog reminded me a lot of how urban outfitters styles their looks. not sure i will buy much from your new collection but i have to say that the catalog was pretty great.

Oh my gosh! Free People, you've done it again! I am in looooooove :) I have to say--my favorite outfit is the outfit on the left on page 27. (The short haired woman in the fedora and black skinny denim leggings.) That outfit is cute, boyish, and totally new wave!! I ordered the outfit right away, even the fedora. I am so excited to wear it!! :) Thanks FP! I love you!

Aren’t these pictures lovely? The pretty girl is Johanna, one of our Sales Associates at our store in Torrance California! She sent me the pictures today, with this little note:
During a recent shoot in Santa Barbara, California, I donned the gorgeous sequin mesh tunic in white. The setting sun managed to perfectly capture the light from the sequins, making for some luminous and beautiful photos!
I agree, they look so gorgeous! Thank you so much for sharing them with us Johanna!

amazing eclairs

These colorful eclairs are from the super-fancy Parisian shop Fauchon! I would be interested to eat one with frosting looking like peas and carrots, though it might be a shame to destroy such a carefully made confection!

This beautiful necklace was designed by Marc Newson for Boucheron. It’s called the Julia Necklace, and that’s what I like the most about it – it’s design was inspired by the Julia sets of fractals discovered by Gaston Julia in the early 1900′s. Below, a picture of a Julia fractal. (Via.)
