Sadly that is the last of the September catalog behind the scenes, but next week I’ll have a sneak peek of the October book which is one of my favorites this year… can’t wait!

September Catalog: Behind the Scenes with the Dogs!

As you may have seen by now, we had a very special cameo by one of our beloved home office pups in the September catalog – Toby! I caught up with Toby the other day to ask him about his experience shooting his first Free People catalog :)

Were you nervous about being a part of our September catalog shoot? I was a little nervous, but once we started shooting, I relaxed.

What did you do to prepare for the shoot? Well, I’m a natural so I didn’t do much. I had a bath and made sure my paws were extra clean.

What did you think of Bambi, the model you posed with? She was great! I think we complimented each other well. At first, she was a bit scared of me, but after she realized I was a gentle giant, she had fun.

What was your favorite part of the shoot? Being showered with cookies and attention from all the ladies :)

Do you get stopped on the street now that you’re a famous catalog model? Not so much…

Will you be doing any more modeling in the future? I hope to. I am available :)

Do you have a favorite item from the September catalog? I love the Americana Sweater Jumper.

What’s your favorite thing about Fall? Boots and the cooler weather!

Toby wasn’t the only pup on set at the September shoot! He had a bud to hang out with – Ace!

Ace lives on the farm in New Tripoli where our catalog was shot. He lost his leg when he was hit by a car but he is doing just fine now! He had a blast during the shoot and LOVED all the attention from the ladies :) He is one happy dog!

Free People September 2011 Catalog Video

Free People – September 11 catalog from FreePeople on Vimeo.

 

To end the day, here is our September 2011 catalog video! Shot by our videographer, featuring models Bambi Northwood-Blyth and Martha Hunt. Bambi and Martha prance through fields like forest nymphs with flowers in their hair, wrapped in cozy fabrics and textures and the golden light of the Autumn sun.

Song is “All We Ever Wanted Was Everything” by Bauhaus.

September Catalog Sneak Peek!

Looking through our September catalog you can feel Fall emanating from its pages.  Cozy knits and texture, plaid and lots of layers – all things that I can’t wait to wrap myself up in as the temperature drops.  Shot at a beautiful old mill in New Tripoli PA by Yelena Yemchuk, the book features models Bambi Northwood-Blyth and Martha Hunt. Here’s a sneak peek…I can almost smell the crisp chilly air and hear the crunch of leaves beneath my feet…

From our Catalog Team: Shooting in NYC

Our catalog team sent along some more photos to give you guys a little peek at what they’ve been up to! Enjoy :)

We arrived in New York City on the 19th and had a nice bonding dinner to start the shoot off right at Frankie’s on the Lower East Side. We stayed at The Bowery – the rooms are beautiful and some have lovely private terraces. We got up early the next morning and headed to Splashlight Studios where we were shooting with one of our favorite photographers, Guy Aroch, and model Julia Stegner. She is very beautiful and even more so behind the lens! I love the 60’s Marianne Faithfull vibe she brings to the table and felt really inspired by it. During the shoot we listened to Carly Simon and munched on Sushi. It was a fun shoot and the perfect time to be in NYC – while there was a stifling heat wave in Philly, New York had a cool breeze circulating the summer air. It was a great shoot, we are all very proud of it and can’t wait for everyone to see!

i love her cute, off-duty style!

July Lookbook: Behind The Scenes With Bambi Northwood-Blyth

Our july lookbook features one of our favorite fashion icons, Australian model Bambi Northwood-Blyth! She is such a joy to be around – from her endearing accent to her magnetic charm, we all fell in love with her. For our july lookbook she showcases our pre-fall collection full of layering essentials like leather, denim, crochet, tights, bed jackets and sheer fabrics. Here’s a peek behind the scenes!

Bambi told us the story behind her cute ankle tattoo: she and her boyfriend were traveling together and got beaded anklets that read “dan and bambi.” She decided to get a tattoo of the anklet so that she would always have it :)
