"How a hat makes you feel is what a hat is all about". - Philip Treacy
Attended my first Finders Keepers fair i Copenhagen. It was so much fun and really great to see how thrilled people was about the haoris. We almost sold out and many happy thoughts to the brave swedish guy who bought himself the big black headdress :-)
So I just uploaded first bash of the new haoris straight from Japan. I'm really proud and excited - everyone of them is beautiful a real work of art. I have decided to start a springsale.

Hi everyone, I'm proud and strangely a bit nervous introducing this new product on gypsy to you. Cause I made it myself :-) Yes true! As of now I'm official a seamstress. This summer I have been hunting down old vintage materials in order to create these OOAK denim embellished vests.
The plain denim is adorned with authentic vintage tribal embellishments from the nomadic tribes of india, Afganistan and Pakistan. It's beautiful old craft all the way. Some of the vests are more simply decorated with a vintage patch and coins. Other vests are embellished thousands of tiny beads that has been meticulously hand woven creating the most incredible tribal design.
It's really OOAK and you can also order one just for you!
A few days ago we made an early morning photoshoot in Dyrehaven with Emilie, her horse and photographer Signe Roderik. Take a look at the two first finished series:
Today I got the first shipment of vintage kimonos and haori's straight from Japan. They are totally unique - only one of each! They are old but restored with the utmost respect for the kimono art and textile. Some of them have a few stains or very small holes - but really nothing you will notice. The are SO amazing. I will start uploading pix of them later tonight and keep you posted.
What is a haori? A haori is a jacket worn over kimono. It is not meant to be worn as a top by itself, or crossed over in the front like a kimono. The collar is meant to hang straight down along your chest. A haori is easy to style with anything in the modern wardrobe.

Two days ago my best friend and amazing photographer Signe Roderik and fantastic Caroline helped me with new product pic to gypsy. I'm so happy about the energy they put into it and not at least the result. Take a look.
Gypsybyheart has been underway for a long time - too long perhaps. I have long wished to create a universe with special and beautiful things that are close to my heart. The idea is if I like it, there are probably others who like them as well. Gypsybyheart is a playground where I will show rad stuff from all over the world. It is far from a nordic and minimalist style universe. It will quirky, etnic and hopefully full of surprises. I have gone live with a lot of indian headdresses, I love them and they speak to my fascination for the native american culture, nature religions and nomadic lifestyle. They are all hand-made and made with lots of love.
