April Catalog Sneak Peek: La Dolce Vita Issue

For our April catalog we wanted to take a different approach and divide the book into three chapters, each with its own distinct story.  “A Free People Family” features one of our favorite and most talented families, Guy Aroch, Anna Palma and their adorable children, photographed by Anna Palma.  “Sweet as Candy” explores the darker side of the romantic Free People girl we call Candy, featuring stunning model Crystal Renn photographed in studio by Billy Kidd. Lastly, “The Girl in the Bikini,” shot by Guy Aroch, is an ode to summer, sunshine and swim. Model Ieva Laguna (also featured in the first chapter) is transformed with Brigitte Bardot-inspired hair and makeup and vacation-inspired retro styling. We love how different these chapters are and can’t wait to share lots more with you in the coming weeks! For now, enjoy a sneak peek at our April book – and let us know which chapter is your favorite so far!

This is such a tough call, but I need to go with the dark haired model – in the ruffled skirt and also the lace dress…<3

I like the Family chapter a lot! Cute kids!

For me Crystal was a great model fighting for curves in fashion industry. I loved her book and everything. But it feels a bit strange to see her so skinny. Also she is still beautiful!


This whole thing is AHmazing!! Can’t even chose a favorite. Obsessed!!
