I couldn’t resist posting this video of the Thames River in London in 1935! The film is an early color video; it used Gasparcolor, which is a very rare and old way of adding color to film. You can read a very detailed and admiring article about Gasparcolor here.
I find old color pictures and videos like this very intriguing, because one seldom gets a glimpse of the reality of life back then… it’s like a visual history lesson. If you are into stuff like this too, be sure to check out this old post about autochrome pictures.

For whatever reason, I was kind of surprised to see that Louis Vuitton has come out with this skateboard, which comes in its own little LV case. It’s cute though, right? I do like it, but at a price of $8,250, I don’t think I’ll be seeing one in person any time soon!

The new BLDG15 Threads is out today, and this month it’s all about Home Office Style! We asked six different Home Office employees to go the racks and pick out a Free People outfit for spring, and to tell us a little bit about their own personal style! We made a really sweet little video of our endeavors, and got really inspired to keep making up fun outfits! To watch the video and get inspired yourself, head over to BLDG 15 Threads!

My friends, it’s time again for our Thursday Poll!
Last week I asked for your opinion on a number of harem pants we are currently selling, and the majority of you responded that harem pants are not for you, with that option getting 283 votes! Very interesting! Those of you who did like the look of harem pants favored the We The Free Crinkle Jersey Harem Pants, with 95 votes!
This week, I’ve been thinking about drapey, voluminous tops. I love them right now, and I actually have not yet talked to anyone that does not! They are definitely a major trend right now! I think it may be because they are flattering on so many body types.
We have a number of drapey tops in our collection right now, and I’d be interested to know which one you find most appealing!
First, take a look at our Angel Dolman Top shown here in white.

Next, check out our Double Drape Tank, also shown in white.

Shown below is the Embroidered Floral Hoodie in oatmeal.

Finally, have a look at the Drapey Muscle Tee, here in black.

Which one of these do you like the most?

The talented Portuguese carpenter Carlos Alberto created the awesome wood Mota and wood Vespa shown above. Aren’t they beautiful? I want one! His ‘normal’ carpenter work is also very impressive. See more pictures of all at his site.

As the admin of this site is working, no doubt very rapidly it will be renowned, due to its feature contents.

I've been absorbing you're website for a few days now, from page to page, not wanting to stop until I see everything you've posted. I was truly amazed by all the ideas that you have here and I was planning to send you an e-mail asking when are you going to extend this "diy-philosophy" to Portugal. I would love to have a place like Free People to share this kind of things and even more, to work in a place like that. After 30-something pages I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw a post about a Portuguese. I'm so happy that we get some recognition for our artists! Congratulations on all your work. :) Mia

These delicious-looking candy plants are really pleasing to the eye, don’t you think? I can’t tell if they’re photoshopped or not, what do you think? I know they’re by Joachim LaPotre, but I can’t find too much on his site of how he makes his photos. Either way, they sure are appealing and inspiring!

Joetta Maue is making beautiful statements with vintage textiles and needlework. She also makes these encouraging banners (ok, some are not so encouraging) that are inspiring me to make a permanent banner to hang in my apartment!
Any suggestions on what my banner should say??

I really like this silverware by Habitat. It’s so pretty! What do you think?

Hey guys! So good news! Megan, who works on the Direct Marketing Team, mentioned that our sister brand Anthropologie is selling a very similar style of silverware! I checked it out and it's really cute too! See it here: http://www.anthropologie.com/anthro/catalog/productdetail.jsp?_dyncharset=ISO-8859-1&_dynSessConf=3914138893027712401&id=78110&parentid=EAT_TABLE_UTENSILS&pushId=EAT_TABLE_UTENSILS&popId=EAT_TABLETOP&sortProperties=&navCount=7&navAction=poppushpush&fromCategoryPage=true&selectedProductSize=&selectedProductSize1=&color=sil

Aww I'm sorry guys! I'm not very proficient in French myself! I only put that site up with the silverware because it is the company that makes it, and it was the only site I could find that related to the silverware! I searched when making the post, but alas, no websites with any helpful information about the silverware, or really even mentioning the silverware at all! I wish I could help you find a set or an English website! If you guys find one, please post it! Also, Google has a translator that you can use on websites, if anyone felt like trying it on the silverware's website... Good luck! xo p

it reminds me of the video projected onto the lobby floor of the 21C Museum Hotel in Louisville, one of the coolest hotels around.

I loved it. That was so cool and it makes me feel all wonderful feeling inside.

Inspired by Marcel Duchamp’s Eau de Voilette and starring Michelle Williams and Natalie Portman, this short art film is an advertisement for a ficitional perfume and sure to be beautiful and interesting. If that doesn’t already get you thinking, the film is directed by Roman Polanski and was conceived by Francesco Vezzoli. I can’t wait for the online screening on February 6th on Dazed Digital.
Head over to Dazed now for the trailer, and then mark your calendar for the 6th!
