Whether you're talking about a mid-winter trip to Montauk or an Indian adventure with Freida Pinto, the Free People lookbooks should come with a disclaimer: Warning, may cause serious wanderlust.

And while this principle holds true (and the brand still loves bringing its collections to far-flung locales), this summer things are staying a little closer to home. For its pre-fall collection, the company has recruited supermodel Candice Swanepoel to give us all a lesson in New York dressing, featuring fringe, plaid, and lots of leather. Think more "urban jungle" and not so much actual jungle.

Summer might just be getting started, but if there's anything to get us excited for the temperatures to drop again, it's this. Check out a first look here, and let the city shenanigans begin.
