Gypsy Women

Comments | | Print

(NEW YORK) What do Jade Jagger, Alice Temperley, Devendra Banhart, Alan Faena, Damien Hirst and Maia Norman, Nicolas Malleville and the Mignot sisters have in common? They’re all, according to writer Julia Chaplain, modern-day “Gypsetters”  (a fusion of the gypsy and the jet-setter) and fashion icons in their own right. “Gypsetters are people I’ve met–or been inspired by–in my travels who have perfected a high-low approach to life that fuses the freelance and nomadic wile of a gypsy with the sophistication and global references of the jet set,” says Chaplain. The frequent The New York Times, Elle, and Vogue contributor will be launching her new Assouline-published book, Gypset Style, with a chic shopping event at Madison Avenue’s Bally boutique next Thursday, hosted by designer Stephanie Hirsch, artist Field Kalloppe, Artco president Cary Leitzes, and stylist Amanda Ross.

In addition to mingling with the likes of Jean Pigozzi, Lisa Anastos, Anne Caruso, Blair Clark, and Alexandra Lebenthal, partygoers will be able to browse Bally creative director Brian Atwood's delicious creations and benefit the Central Park Conservancy.
