Lifestyle brand, Free People, will bring its eclectic apparel to Portland’s five block shopping destination Brewery Blocks, on Friday, April 15th 2016. At 6,215 gross square-feet, Free People is thrilled to open a new Portland boutique.
Inspired by the girl who is the global traveler and the collections that she curates and displays, the new space will be designed in the brand’s ‘Boho Bungalow’ concept. Customers will be welcomed through custom steel double entry doors. As you enter the space, you are greeted by rough wide planked wood floors and natural mango carved shrouds that adorn the space. The tone and palette is warm and inviting, the main sales floor will feature a large pitched ceiling that is centered on the entry doors and clad with reclaimed hemlock beams. Featured woven pendants will hang above the 3 cash wraps where customers can complete their purchases. The store will have 7 fitting rooms, an intimates section, and a room featuring the brand’s FP Movement collection.
Free People Portland will be supplied with a range of fashionable spring styles. A large assortment of dresses will be available from lace, bold prints, rompers, embroidery and various silhouettes. A wide selection of FP tee, tanks and bodysuits will be available making this the new destination for our favorite FP must haves. This year, an updated take on festival will have a cool military inspired vibe with a product ranging from denim jeans and shorts, feminine woven tops and knit tees paired with military inspired jackets, pants and shorts. A seasonal ‘Endless Summer’ shop will be available to customers with an array of apparel as well as accessories such as sunnies, ankle bracelets, and beach hats. A dedicated ‘FP Collection’ shoe shop will have an array of sandals and boots. The store’s ‘Intimately Free People’ section will have a large array of soft bras, underwire bras and undies outfitted with slips, camis, robes, sleep sets and loungewear. The Portland store will also be our third location to house FP Movement, the collection will include an assortment of styles that work for the girl interested in dance, run and yoga.
