Julia Chaplin’s gypsy caravan makes its second stop with the upcoming launch of her latest book, Gypset Travel (Assouline, ISBN: 9781614280620). Following the success of her 2009 Gypset Style, Chaplin takes readers to her 10 most coveted places around the world for you to relax, explore…and be the envy of all your friends.
Chaplin is a modern day Talitha Getty, exploring the magical hidden enclaves that are haunted by gypsy jet-setters, a.k.a. gypsetters – the portmanteau she coined while first covering these chic nomads. Her book meanders through such places as Lamu, Kenya; José Ignacio, Uruguay; and Todos Santos, Mexico. The pages are filled with lush photos of glamorous bohemian hideouts and personal stories and tips from Chaplin and her cohorts. Not only are the interiors and architecture a perfect example of boho-luxe living, but the outfits worn by Chaplin’s subjects define what she calls “understated glamour and experimental luxury” – a heady mix of ethnic influences, delicate fabrics and clashing prints.
Gypset Travel‘s launch party will be held at the Crow’s Nest on Montauk (another one of the book’s featured locations) on Saturday August 25th.
