Always marching to the beat of their own drum, design-duo Dotan and Osi Shoham stay true to the name of their brand Gypsy 05 by taking a modern-nomadic approach to their SS2012 RTW collection. Inspired by the mystery and intrigue of Native American culture, Gypsy 05’s Spring 2012 collection pays homage to the shapes and designs of the ancient Aztecs through an earth-toned color palate infused with vibrant shades, flowing silhouettes made even more beautiful as they blow in the wind, and fierce prints that take reference from the symbolic arrowhead. Luxe layering, lace insets and asymmetrical hemlines add whimsy, while fringe accents, belted detailing and paisley patterns offer something new for this celebrity-favorite women’s collection.

Men’s silhouettes are relaxed, modern and functional, drawing influence from the environment’s organic components. Styles from basic tees and tanks, plush pullovers, antique henley's, functional cargo sweats, and cut-off sweats create the ideal line up of men's motifs for this joint men’s and women’s runway presentation.

In celebration of Gypsy 05’s SS2012 collection, a VIP party will immediately follow the runway show. The event will premiere the music of Bad Decisions, featuring Jaco Caraco (Miley Cyrus) and Todd Morse (The Offspring) on Guitar, Alex Mercier on Keyboard, Bryce Soderberg (Lifehouse) on Bass and Jeremy Piven on Drums. The evening, which runs until midnight, will also include a special guest appearance and will feature Paula Present’s PTERO Dance Theatre.

Gypsy 05 is more than a creative statement; it is an expression that stands to make a difference in the world. Gypsy's designs incorporate organic fabrics, organic soy softeners, low impact dyes, and seaweed extract printing in every collection. As part of the brand’s mission in environmental awareness, Gypsy 05’s headquarters is the first completely solar-powered dying, printing, and manufacturing facility in Los Angeles.
