Have you heard of Gypsetters? If you have read one of our recent posts about the book called Gypset Travel and its author Julia Chaplin, who also writes for The New York Times, W magazine and Elle, then we don’t need to describe the term in detail. For those who haven’t read it, here is a short description, courtesy of Julia: „Gypsetters (Gypsy + Jet Set) are artists, designers, and bon vivants who live and work around the globe“. In order to introduce Gypsetters to the general public, before Gypset Travel, Julia wrote another book – called Gypset Style – which has achieved a cult status among the stylish, modern day nomads.
In Gypset Style, Julia talks about and explores offbeat lifestyles of the 21st century cultural nomads and the enclaves they live in. In the book, she profiles public figures like Jade Jagger, artist Damian Hirst and fashion designer Alice Temperley, as well as anonymous Gypsetters of today. There are also written pieces about subcultural forefathers like the Victorian adventurers, the Lost Generations, the hippies, and the Beatniks.
The book has 180 lavishly illustrated pages brimming with articles about Bohemian luxury, adventure, non-conformist lifestyles, artistry, global travelers, fashion, decor and music. There are also iconic photographs like the one of the 1960s style icon Talitha Getty on a roof-top in Marrakesh, Morocco, as well as the images depicting how counterculture has progressed over the years. Gypset Style is a wonderful coffee table book and a great gift for nomadic Bohemians.
