That’s the vibe Julia Chaplin’s Hippie-Futura ‘Gypset’ fashion line evokes. It’s, like, far-out, yet, not! One small step for womankind.
Cool chick Julia Chaplin has done her share of travel, mostly at water’s edge, and when she returns from exotic ports, she always has that effortlessly tousled look about her, freckled face, scraggly-sandy hair, surfboard-toned gams and all. More “just got off the yacht” then off the press junket.
Chaplin, a travel and style author and scribe, has this time returned with her own line of girl’s clothes: fitted and geometric-patterned mini-dresses, pancho shawls and fun-print accessories, suggestive of both Port Antonio and St. Tropez. Yet there’s also more of a bit of “The Jetsons” thrown in there-you can see Jane (“his wife”) and (“daughter”) Judy wearing these little numbers too.
Cynthia Rowley has started carrying the line-which featured minis with names like “Coco Weekender”–as of last week. Here’s how Chaplin’s mission statement describes the day-and-night-wear line. In short-short, we dig the affordable-enough duds:
“The Gypset clothing line was born out of the wanderings of style and travel journalist Julia Chaplin and her book ‘Gypset Style’ (gypsy + jet-set). Her debut collection, called the Galactic Weekender, is meant as a wearable extension of the Gypset lifestyle. The idea is you can beam between Bahia, Senegal, and Saint-Germain-des-Prés and back all in one weekend and in one mini dress.”
