    Gypset Style Book by Julia Chaplin

Chaplin debuted the five dress designs, in vibrant prints and fabrics sourced from Africa and Holland, last night at Des Kohan, the off-the-beaten path destination shop that has long been home to some of LA’s most sought-after clientele and envious merchandise.  With a business built around exclusives (Hussein Chalayan and Viktor & Rolf, among them), the store’s namesake figured it was the perfect opportunity to style Chaplin’s new wares.  “I work with all these designers already and figured I wanted to showcase Gypset with the appropriate accessories, so I’ve done these exclusive bags from Bare and have Annie Costello Brown of YSL designing limited-edition jewelry,” Kohan said, as Balenciaga’s Katherine Ross, Mad Men’s Abigail Spencer, and another frequent Des Kohan collaborator,          Juan Carlos Obando, browsed.  “It’s all just a part of what Julia’s imagined.”
