Ooh la la! French Gypsy is a 1950s inspired dress, and she’s our best-seller in her namesake country! Featuring a gathered bust, elastic on- or off-the-shoulder neckline, nipped-in raised waist and flattering full skirt, Gypsy now also offers a Summery tie-strap option.

Take her for a country walk in cottons and prints, or take her to the prom in satin – French Gypsy handles any occasion with savoir-faire. The clever pleated bust both enhances smaller busts and flatters larger ones, with the ruched shoulder detail providing a pleasing balance. The panels that make up Gypsy offer a number of tantalising options for customisation and embellishment, and the wide skirt is the perfect canvas for a contrasting fabric or embroidery. Superbly changeable, Gypsy can suit a range of occasions, styles, colours and fabrics: deep hues in dupion silk give her a burlesque aesthetic straight from the Moulin Rouge, whilst ribbon straps and pastel gingham make her the picture of yellow-brick-road innocence, with the whole spectrum in between! What will you make of her?
