Launched in 2005 by sister/brother team Osi and Dotan Shoham, Gypsy 05 has become a line favored by celebrities like Kare Hudson, Jessica Alba, Amanda Seyfried and Miley Cyrus. And, Gypsy 05 is not just for the girls, with a line for men that has been well received. Their Fall 2011 line was attended by quite a few celebs, including Glee cast members Darren Criss and Dot-Marie Jones.
Epitomizing the Los Angeles life style, Gypsy 05 has gained wide appeal as a line that is easy-to-wear, comfortable and still extremely fashionable. With an emphasis on being eco-friendly, the company produces a line of organic and natural fabrics uniquely dyed in their own dye house.
Showing at Style Fashion Week LA, Gypsy 05’s Collection has a definite bohemian feel to it. Flowing maxi dresses, reminiscent of the hippie culture of the 60’s, mixed together with their personal styling of classic sportswear pieces for men and women, from chinos and unstructured jackets to chunky sweaters and lace tops. Modern takes on tie-dye highlight the collection as do ombré dyed sweaters and silks. Silhouettes are relaxed and casual with an emphasis on layering with contrasting colors and prints. The must have accessories of the collection are the richly dyed scarves, shown layered on both men and women.
This season’s show proved that Osi and Dotan Shoham continue to mature as designers, taking the line to the next level. It also reminds us that Gypsy 05 is a line to keep one’s eye on!
