For their March 2012 catalog, Free People was exploring one of my favorite countries: Vietnam! They explored the capital city, Hanoi, as well as Ha Long Bay, one of the new seven wonders of the world, and Sa Pa, a beautifully scenic mountain-town. And I’m pretty sure I see glimpses of Hoi An–my favorite–in there too!

I especially liked how the photo-shoot was conducted as though the models, Michele and Martha, were tourists and they were captured in that context as part of their surroundings instead of as just subjects against a background.

Scott gets to go back to Viet Nam next month and is planning on exploring some new areas, possibly Nha Trang. I’m excited to see what he finds in anticipation of my own expedition back to my favorite country early next year!
