Fusing the carefree lifestyle of a gypsy with the sophistication of the jet set, gypsetters are artists, surfers, designers, and bons vivants who live and work around the world, from Kenya and Uruguay to Ibiza and the Aeolian Islands. Delve into the glamorous global lifestyle of the gypset through gorgeous photography and fascinating first- person anecdotes. Gypset Style (2009), Gypset Travel (2012), and Gypset Living (2014) compose a perfect trilogy of exploration and insight into the unconventional wanderlust lives of these cultural nomads and the bohemian enclaves they inhabit.
Jet Set + Gypsy = GYPSET…they are artists, surfers, designers, and bons vivants who live and work around the globe and have created the perfect life, where pleasure, travel, and livelihood all coexist in an eclectic style. From José Ignacio, Uruguay and Ibiza, Spain to Joshua Tree, California, GYPSET STYLE explores the unconventional, wanderlust lives of these high-low cultural nomads and the bohemian enclaves they inhabit as well as their counterculture forebears, such as the Victorian explorers, the Lost Generation, the Beatniks and the hippies. The GYPSET lifestyle is not about money, it’s about a level of taste that can only be accessed from an approach to life that fuses high and low culture. Author Julia Chaplin who coined the descriptive phrase, looks back at quintessential gypsy boho moments in social history and also devotes a section of the book to modern Gypsetters including: Devendra Banhart, Ashley Bickerton, Consuelo Castiglioni, Alan Faena, Sean Gullette and Yto Barrada, Damien Hirst and Maia Norman, Jade Jagger, Nicolas Malleville, The Mignot Sisters, The Mulanovich Family, Carolyn Roumeguere, Alice Temperley, and Andrea Zittel.
Chaplin draws on her own childhood memories of a nomadic lifestyle; sitting in the back of her bohemian parents’ white Volkswagen van with her sister, driving from one far-flung adventure to the next, blaring the Grateful Dead and nibbling on pistachios
