We’re J’Loving…

…that gypsies and their nomadic ways were the inspiration for Uncommon Creatures’ fall ’11 collection, with show notes explaining their sad, persecuted history under Romanian Communism. Clearly, gypsies could use a little respect, which the Danish men’s label has provided in spades. In fact, Uncommon Creatures is about integrity. Each piece, from the hoods to the threadbare sweaters, is manufactured locally. Even the hats are handmade in a Copenhagen attic by a milliner who, while probably not gypsy, is very elderly and may sport the blanket-on-the-go look all the same. Itinerant chic!
