Free People | September Sneak Peek

September is one of my favorite months! Not only is it the month of my birthday but it's also the month when the fall previews hit the webs and fashion magazines come stacked as thick as the yellow pages (Vogue is #1 at doing this). With that said, Free People gave us a tiny glimpse of their new September catalog. The concept is simply adorable! 

"Our September catalog was shot by Guy Aroch, who captures model Martha Hunt on the streets of London in a paparazzi-inspired style. Based around the concept of the modern “it girl” whose every move is documented, Martha dodges the camera as she does everyday things like taking out the trash and going to yoga, working on set and going out at night with her boyfriend, played by model Danny Fox. We love this book and the story it tells, and can’t wait for it to drop on Tuesday! Here’s a sneak peek."

Style Spotlight: Sarah Ruba

As the very cliched story of model-turned musician (ah-hem! Milla Jovovich circa 1994) seemingly has a rather short-lived life span, this one story in particular is something destined to be fully lived. Enter Canadian (currently Brooklyn-based) model-turned-musician Sarah Ruba, lead singer of the band New Look created with her husband Adam Pavao. Already creating a buzz in the electronic-dance scene, New Look's electronic-pop, dub-step sound temporarily leaves you in an of out-of-body, slow-motion exuberance that you never want to go away. Ruba's soft voice makes it even more enchanting--hypnotizing you into a realm of surrealistic bliss.

J.Crew just keeps getting better and better at it. This fall don't even think about fading into the background in all black. Color is still alive and kicking. Printed trousers continue to dominate, while boucle suits and leathers shake it up a bit. Set off with shoulder bags in harmonious colorblock and reptile prints finished off with pointed pumps in a selection of hues and materials giving off that polished-yet-fashionable look J.Crew is so good at. Check out some of the looks for Fall/Winter 2012 below.
