Free People in Vietnam: March Catalog Sneak Peek

For our March catalog, our team traveled across the globe to Vietnam, embarking on a journey that would take them on planes,  boats and night trains, through rice fields and mountains and across ancient bridges, capturing it all on film as they went. It is one of my favorite catalogs to date – in every image there is so much to look at, from the colors and the clothes and beautiful models to the breathtaking landscape and atmosphere of Vietnam.
