Today is all about getting lost in a faraway place, allowing magical images to transport us, imagining a story that feels both foreign and exciting, via the new Spell lookbook, White Dunes, Gypsy Hues. We wrote about Spell & the Gypsy Collective a little while ago upon first stumbling across the blog, and since then it has become a go-to source of inspiration when we're looking for something to fulfill our dreams of wanderlust and gypsy souls.
I always have a slightly hard time describing the Bicyclette style to people when they first ask (silly, I know!), because one thing that I think defines us is that we're quite eclectic, and there can be quite a range of styles at any given time. For example, we're always very drawn to and inspired by bohemian style, taking elements of it and incorporating it into our own looks, but I wouldn't say it defines us, and we tend to mix it in with other styles, which I think is largely due to our downtown, city-centric influence. I'm always swept away by lookbooks and images that take this lifestyle all the way and really embody it, which Spell & the Gypsy Collective does extremely well, especially with this new collection.
"For our April/May 14 Lookbook our Spell muse takes to a sprawling sand-scape in a far away land, lost in a sea of white dunes and gypsy hues, she explores different shades of light and shadow as the sun tracks across the sky.
With florals reminiscent of some a psychedelic Tuscan garden and a muted python print with shadows of hibiscus, both softened by the snowy-white of vintage crochet lace… throw in some trucker tees, raglans and flannel shirts with brass tipped collars, signature Spell slouchies (they’re back!!), sheer dusters and flowing kimonos that catch the wind as you walk – then style it all back with chunky boots, tribal bits and turquoise bobs and you have Spell Fall 14…"
