Dress Like You Don’t Need to Work (Ever)

Join the gypset.

There’s something so indulgent about exotic prints and luxe fabrics. They’re more ‘free-flowing’ than ‘hard-working’ and call for lounging, for reclining, for relaxing. They feel like a special occasion kind of outfit, one reserved for holidays in Marrakech, garden weddings and romantic sojourns. The truth, though, is anything but: luxury like this is for the everyday. It’s time, after all, to channel flow, rather than slave to drive.

So: indulge and run with the gypset. Here, gypsy-inspired style meets the jet set way. It’s a bon vivant way of life. A way walked – and worn – by the globe wanderer, the seeker. They take their cues from the free spirits of the 70s, from the beatniks, from the Lost Generation. They’re artists, they’re designers, they’re wanderers, they’re whatever they felt like when they work up that morning. They buy art, they know literature. Born of another era, they wear billowing silhouettes and wandering prints. Pendants on fine gold chain. Their own personal talisman.

Check in with Romance Was Born, Alice McCall and Lee Mathews and think ruffles, embellishments, oversized florals. It's time to make like Almost Famous's Penny Lane and forge your own path.  “Morocco. A seat by the window please.”
