LOS ANGELES — Aiming to fully capture the Southern California lifestyle, 10-year-old Los Angeles-based contemporary brand Gypsy05 has opened its first two retail stores close to home. One, located just a block away from Robertson Boulevard at 8811 Alden Drive, opened late last month and the second is set to launch later this month at Malibu Country Mart.
“We started as a very small company and today we are a brand that is sold almost worldwide,” said Dotan Shoham, one of the label’s cofounders. “It is clearer for us and is starting to get clearer for our customer what Gypsy05 is all about and now we’re ready for an even bigger expansion.”
“I see things on the hanger and I’m, like, ‘I never knew that color worked on me.’ It’s things you necessarily wouldn’t choose to wear, but once you put them on, you see why Janie is who Janie is." — Lily Collins on working with former "Mad Men" costume designer, Janie Bryant on creating looks for her role as Celia Brady's in Amazon series, "The Last Tycoon." 📸@jilliansollazzo #wwdeye
