    So is this going to be an actual book?  I love all the photography I’ve seen for it so far.  I would pre-order it if I could find a place to do so…

    My fave decade looks so far (but not so much the pieces, oddly).  It just keeps getting better and better from Free People.

    I like the idea of the fire breathers But it really could have been executed better! And it doesn’t tie in with the other images. Also would have been better with a model who can do extreme poses then one who just stands there.

      If there is ever anything wrong with the posing its the photographers fault, they are the ones directing the model and doing the editing. For all we know Elsa could have been going to town on the extreme posing and David encouraged her to pose in this way.

        It’s not always the photographers fault some models just don’t know how to do well on extreme and make awkward poses that really don’t look good hence having to stick to safe poses or they wouldn’t end up with any shots at all.
        Maybe she went to town on it and they were all bad!! Shame.
        The whole shoot is pretty average.

          Agreed it feels pretty typical for them, nothing new. Seems rather disconnected to me :(

            Judging by your previous comments about free people, seems like you have more of a problem with the brand than the actual shoot! disgruntled?
