This week marks the first of Spring!!! Can’t wait until it’s warm enough to ditch the socks and slip on these Havaianas, so perfect with our Indian inspirations…

I wear them since I started to walk!!!!! They are really cool.

I love these sandals a lot! They're functional like most flip flops you could find anywhere, but they've got that great fp twist to them that make them so much different than anything I've seen before! I can't wait to buy one in every colour!

Check out these two web-only magazines. I posted about NEET before, and Amour just launched this month. Of course both of these are from the UK. Anyone know any crafty DIY fashion zines produced in the US???

cracker farm

drawing by Scott Avett
We would like to introduce you to the talented photography team that has recently been working with us on both our website and catalogs. They call themselves Cracker Farm and they are super fun to work with! We asked them to tell us their five most favorite things, and this is what they had to say…
1-Daz, their poor doggie that is no longer with them.

2-The Avett Brothers
3-Langhorne Slim
4-Morrocan Sleeping Pants… they got these amazing pants in Morocco when they did a photoshoot for Free People last year.
5-Envoy Gallery

And this is Chief Butter, a favorite photo that they took.
So check out their links!!!

hand painted

It’s all about the handpainted accessories! Check out our Pool Party Nailpolish with cute color names like Rockets are Red and Shocker in Pinktown. Handpainted hairclamps and sunglasses too! Both the nailpolish and sunglasses were handpainted by local Philly artists. Remember when I asked for crafty girls in the Philly area?

don -Jan 10, 2011, 11:38PM
i agree. i painted them.
andrea -Apr 27, 2010, 10:31PM
hello! i know this was three years ago but i think the floral painted sunglasses [and everything floral painted] should come back in stock!!! i'm dying to get my hands on a pair of these sunglasses and would love to see them back at free people <3

Wanted to show you a little “behind the scenes” on the photography process from our India shoot. A bunch of the photos were actually taken with a Polaroid camera. The film had this really cool black black border with punctured holes. Stay tuned for more info on the photography, as I will introduce you to our photographers!

fpgirl -Aug 08, 2007, 11:00PM
Hi Kaya, Do you have a portfolio online? Send us the link and we'll check it out... Thanks!
Kaya -Aug 06, 2007, 6:46PM
What do you suggest doing to become a photographer for free people? I understand that for a model, they need an agent. Is that correct?

In preparation for our March catalog, the creative team gathered tons of images for inpiration from India. The book drops this week, so check your mailboxes and stay tuned to the web for the digital version. Check out the “behind the scenes” video!

Hi, I blogged about you today on my Philly-based design blog. I love your clothes and your blog--and also your choice of music for the behind-the-scenes video :). Caroline

Good choice of music! The cure!!!

These are the perfect tights for when the weather starts getting warm (if that ever happens). The big open crochet will keep you cool, and they’re made of mostly cotton so they will breathe nicely. Won’t be hot and sticky like nylon tights…
We like these worn as regular footless tights, or styled pulled down over your heels. It continues the line of your legs and makes them look longer, instead of being cut off at the ankle. We’re calling this look the “open toe” tights. Sounds better than “toeless” tights, right?

This sounds like an exotic camping trip. Rent one of these vintage Airstream trailers on the Isle of Wight off the southern coast of England. The five girls that run vintage vacations are operating 5 trailers and counting on a working rural farm out there. And each trailer is decorated and stocked with vintage accoutrements, complete with old school reading material tidley winks.

We have been working on these for a long time, and they are finally ready for you! We fell in love with a vintage umbrella we bought on ebay and have worked to replicate the shape, and then of course add those special Free People touches…

The umbrella is really great quality, made by a fantastic umbrella company. It’s smaller than your typical umbrella, but supported by 16 ribs instead of 12 (that gives it the vintage look). We designed the screen print on the heavy weight nylon and here in Philly, we added the strips of fabric woven through the inside.

I think the natural color makes a perfect parasol for sunny days too! Check em out here

Very cute umbrellas! I especially love the beige color the best. I have the pink one and it is really cute but very pricey! But, I am glad that FP still had this to purchase online!
Kathy L. Maxwell -Mar 30, 2007, 1:40PM
LOVE this umbrella!!!- Thing is , I've received 2 of them missing the tassels on the end of the handle!!! Thats part of the "cute"!! Hopefully 3 is the charm and it will come with tassels!! Anyone else have this problem?? Thanks! Free People ROCKS!!! LOVE you guys!!!

This basket is so perfect for the city girl with a bike. Called the “Carrie” designed by Marie-Louise Gustafsson for Design House Stockholm, it’s available this spring. They sell to quite a few design stores in the states, so maybe you can call the one closest and beg them to order it. The best part is, the basket is easily removable and doubles as a shopping basket. Very handy for grocery shopping or the farmers market…

new mag alert

Preen is a new fashion mag that just launched and will be produced on a bi-monthly basis (that means once every two months, right?). So far, I’m into their aesthetic and like that it only costs $5.99. Because all of the other good magazines are $20. They seem to get that free spirited fashion enthusiast that’s not so into all the “high fashion” glitter. After I get through it, I’ll be sure to share some of the treasures I find among the pages. For now check out this short video intro they did…

Lara -Feb 22, 2007, 10:32AM
Ooh, lovely! I'm still wishing Lula was more accessible in the states.

A Free People coworker introduced me to this blog Dirty Sugar Cookies (thanks Heather!) and I just think it’s hilarious. You may know Ayun Halliday from her monthly columns in Bust or her quarterly zine, East Village Inky. But it turns out she has some culinary skills and a few books under her belt as well. I like that she posts random photos loosely connected to the recipe she’s presenting, and her “borscht on tumeric” color scheme truly burns your eyes.

camelOne -Oct 22, 2007, 10:38AM
Very nice this blog =)

Looks fun! I love the new Amy Sedaris book about entertaining too, with the Todd Oldham pictures of her covered in sprinkles. http://www.amysedarisrocks.com/ilikeyou.htm
