Free People April 2016 Catalog

For this April the label has decided to provide us with a whole dreamy array of festival-approved staples, the style, lines, cuts and prints of which seem to perfectly match the lookbook, captured by photographer Guy Arroch in the Santa Monica Mountains, in California. Californian are most of the ensembles indeed, which immediately catapult us back in the days when the hippie movement was taking the first steps toward a better and more peaceful society.

Showcased by models Camilla Deterre, Andreea Diaconu and Drake Burnette, Free People’s April 2016 proposals vary from breezy open-back maxi dresses, which are a longtime hallmark of the label and promise to give you some cool Janis Joplin vibes, to fringed ponchos decorated with the American flag, being less boho and more country chic. Aside from fringes, other decorations include lace and golden embroideries, which help reinforce the collection’s ‘chic’ side even more.

Billowy and flared, Free People’s festival fashions caress the body without being too curve-hugging, with the only exception of a few pairs of denim short shorts and short, sinuous shift dresses. Cropped military jackets enhance the waist lines without being too tight, while wrapped tops and skirts emphasize the upper parts of the bodies making it possible for the legs to look even more elongated.

The majority of the proposals definitely lets most of the models’ skin literally breathe, as a large amount of maxi dresses and tops features super plunging necklines either up on the front or in the back. When not bared by the cuts, the skin often gets sensually showcased through some exquisitely embroidered see-through fabrics or even crochet embroidery designs, which make the entire collection look even more ethereal and dream-like.

Other evergreen staples to include in your summer wishlist are Free People’s flowery rompers, which are basically meant to be worn with any pair of boho-chic sandals, super high-waisted and flared jeans, suede miniskirts with scalloped hems, delicate kimono cardigans, roomy tunics and even a pair of cropped flare denim pants that directly comes from the late Sixties. Accessories like the suede hats are a good reason to jump and take a look at the label’s website.

If what you are looking for is only a few jewelry pieces to spice up your looks and literally shine through the day, you may want to consider Free People’s edgy ear cuffs, necklaces and rings, which surely are the icing on the cake, when it comes to any summer outfit. As for Free People’s catalog, it surely never lets us down!
