We couldn’t be more excited to announce that the first Free People store in Tokyo will open tomorrow! We will have a free standing store and showroom in Harajuku as well as a shop-in-shop in the Lumine Est shopping center in Shinjuku. We fell in love with Tokyo when shooting our October catalog there, and are thrilled to have a presence in this amazing city. Much like the city of Tokyo itself, the store is a mixture of old and new design – a sleek white building is brought to life with colorful gardens and twinkling lights, and the store interior incorporates many of the vintage-inspired, handmade touches we love so much.

It has been frigid in Philadelphia this week…temperatures are the lowest they’ve been in a couple of years, and it’s a harsh reminder that spring is not coming just yet. Read More
One of the things I’m most looking forward to when our Philly store opens on Friday is seeing our new spring store displays! Our display team has transformed the entire atmosphere of our store from rich, sparkling winter to a light and airy spring.
*UPDATE 3/14 – congrats to our winner, fariza from california!*
i love everything about our spring store displays, but my favorite part are the amazing fabric covered suitcases. so i was very excited that our display team brought this beauty over to me for us to give away on the blog! can you imagine waiting for your luggage at baggage claim and seeing one of these come around on the conveyor belt?! talk about one of a kind!
underneath the fabric is a durable plastic suitcase, so these can be used although i’d recommend being gentle with it, due to the delicate nature of the hand-sewn fabric and embellishments.

our new summer store displays are up and i am in awe!
for the garlands, our visual team drew inspiration from holiday decorations they saw in india:
here are some pics of the displays going up in our king of prussia, pa store!
the plexi art was done by hand by our display team members…stay tuned because we have a video of that for you!
the bikes are by far my favorite…they were designed by one of our visual display team members while she was in india.
aren’t they beautiful? i want one to ride around at the beach this summer!
