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.

 Gypset Style

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.

Gypset Travel

In the follow-up to her best-selling Gypset Style, Julia Chaplin explores the little-known enclaves of gypsetters around the world, from the Aeolian Islands in Italy to Lamu, Kenya; Morjim, India; and Jose Ignacio, Uruguay. Gypset Travel delves into the glamorous bohemian lifestyle of these artists, designers, and bons vivants—who fuse the carefree ethos of a gypsy nomad with the sophistication of the jet set—through intimate photography and first-person anecdotes.

 Gypset Living

In her third book in the Gypset series for Assouline, Julia Chaplin explores the living spaces of gypsy-jet-setters around the world, from Hydra to Guéthary; from Cuixmala to Pa’ia; and beyond to the Indonesian isles. Chaplin, who coined the term gypset, provides an insightful look into these spectacular personal utopias with her witty and humorous stories of the gypsetters that she meets along the way, such as Alix Goldsmith Marcaccini at her Mexican hideaway, or Halemano, a kind of hippie Four Seasons in Hawaii. Stunning photography opens the door to the fascinating and dazzling homes and haunts of the bohemian artists, designers, and bons vivants known as the gypset.
