Although nubby knits and outerwear are occupying the zeitgeist, the holiday season is approaching and we're already planning our warm-weather vacation. While it might sound counterintuitive, it's actually genius to shop for lightweight wares now. And when we need floaty frocks, we head straight for Australian brand Spell & the Gypsy Collective.
Founded by Byron Bay–based sisters Elizabeth Abegg and Isabella Pennefather, the label—named after Isabella's nickname, Spell—is inspired by the duo's travels, vintage troves and hippie upbringing. The brand aims to encourage individuals to be their true, carefree selves. With a fashionable cult following, the collection boasts a range of dresses, separates, swimwear and accessories perfect for tropical escapes and/or music festivals. The bohemian prints and billowy silhouettes easily take you from day to night. An added bonus: Spell & the Gypsy is committed to sustainability, with garments designed and sampled in Byron Bay and produced ethically around the globe. Get a peek at the collection below and score tips on how to style it for your dream getaway.
