What’s better than a good movie? Showing up like clockwork, the Free People January 2016 catalogue is finally available, and we can affirm in hindsight it is as much thrilling as gorgeous! For this month’s catalog veteran Free People model Constance Jablonski meets Ophelie Guillermand and Josh Upshaw, and the trio jaw-droopingly re-creates some classic cinematic scenarios that will make anyone have the strong desire to spend at least one night binge-watching many timeless iconic films. The good news is that you can already shop these movie-style looks on FreePeople.com!
This Cinema Issue adapts several films, such as Thelma and Louise, Scarface, Reality Bites, Dazed and Confused and even Flashdance, using their actresses and protagonists such as Brigitte Bardot, Michelle Pfeiffer and Winona Ryder as the main muses for the collection. There are even some tomboy-ish and intriguing tailored looks that clearly remind of Diane Keaton in Annie Hall!
Throwing it back and paying homage to some of our favorite icons, the models don’t miss any chance to perfectly recreate every single detail, the most remarkable of which is bringing Bardot’s iconic curlers and Flashdance’s dance poses to the scene. Besides overwhelming our wishlists with fancy and must-have items, each one of Free People’s outfits and photos is also here to remind us that those figures are timeless indeed, and that any time is good to show off a Nineties-inspired look à la Dazed and Confused.
Of course, the accessory line exudes some strong vibes throughout the lookbook too, as it plays one of the most important roles in making the outfits that spectacular, featuring some interesting statement pieces, such as big rounded sunglasses and bandanas. Each look is then refined and finished off with the perfect pair of shoes, ranging from classic sneakers to ankle boots and even low block heels. Free People’s Cinema Issue never leaves anything to chance indeed.
As for the clothes, off-shoulders blouses and denim jeans are the main protagonists here, as they make it possible to easily re-create some of the films’ most iconic fashion moments. White rompers, bell-bottom jeans and kimono dresses play a big role too, making it also possible for everyone to buy some of this New Year’s most fashionable items.
Among all of Free People lookbooks, this Cinema Issue might be fairly regarded as the most eclectic one, as the looks featured quickly jump from the aforementioned Dianne Keaton’s tomboy style to some of bombshell Brigitte Bardot’s iconic outfits. Lacy party dresses and Seventies-inspired deep-v frocks undeniably give the collection the most naïve and sensual turn, while cutoff shorts and denim jackets help in adding some more casual and summery vibes to the pieces too.
To make everything even more accurate, Kamaryn Potter, one of Free People’s stylists, along with photographers Anna Palma & Greg Kadel, took the models to the desert, shooting some of the best Thelma & Louise pictures in the high desert sun. Whether you would like to spend your weekend watching your favorite movies on Netflix or scrolling through Free People’s website, it is up to you!
