Illustrated: The Elements And Our FP Girls

The Elements — believed to mirror the most essential foundations on which all matter is built; Earth, Fire, Air, Water (not pictured here)… and what I like to think of as the fifth element, Spirit.  The fifth element (in both Buddhism and Hinduism) is said to represent that which is beyond the physical or material.  The Spirit goes far beyond our grasping or understanding in a scientific matter, extending to a realm that cannot be measured or quantified.

Office Style: Meadow

Today, I went around the office and captured Meadow looks. Sadly, I think that the true, true Meadow comes out in warmer weather, so I didn’t find a ton of it on this rainy Philadelphia day. There were hints of her though! Even in the dreariest of conditions, we can’t help but pull out our bohemian touches – flowing bed jackets, paisley prints, lace detailing, and cozy knits among our favorites. Now, if only it were nice enough to lie outside in a sunny field…

Meadow loves intricate detailing like fine-touched eyelets. Pick up our Daisy Eyelet Button Down if you’re into the look.

When Meadow wears cardigans, she does them long and flowing. Get the look with our Ribbed Long Cashmere Cardigan and Jenny Floppy Hat.

A New Free People Girl: Meet Molly

Molly has that classic retro look – it’s preppy and sophisticated but in a cool modern way. She takes signature styles and makes them fresh again; her clothes have details such as tipping and pleating and she loves the Peter Pan collar like no other. She’s reserved but her personality exudes confidence… you’ll see her walking elegantly in a city, perched in an old library or quietly sitting in a coffee shop soaking in her thoughts.

Molly is our new style girl who was inspired by the retro things in life; she gives vintage a modern twist! To celebrate Molly’s debut online and in our catalog, we did a special photo shoot featuring FP Jemma, who embodied Molly perfectly – we want to thank the lovely people at One Shot coffee shop in Philly for letting us take photos, be sure to check out their place it’s pretty great – a wonderful atmosphere and delicious food and coffee!

Office Style: Ladylike and Cool

There’s a distinct trend in fashion that has been extremely noticeable around the office these past few months. Employees are embracing their feminine side with a look marked by retro-inspired blouses, peter pan collars, and oxford shoes. The flouncy shirts of the 40’s and 50’s are getting their second life – coming back styled with the coolness of inspirations like Alexa Chung. The retro look couldn’t be more refined and sophisticated, yet adventurous and hip at the same time. We like to pair the lady-like retro pieces back to jumpers and floppy hats for a look that we love so much, we’ve launched a new FP Girl inspired by the trend. Stay tuned next week to learn all about her, but for now, here’s a bit of ladylike and cool inspiration from around the Free People home offices…

Get the look with our Eyelet Godet Mini Skirt, True Grit Denim Top, London Opaque Tights, and  Covington Ankle Boot
