Steering their signature kaleidoscopic prints in a more spiritual direction, Romance Was Born brings you their latest “Ohm-my-god” worthy drop, Tripsy Gypsy.

Inspired by a recent whirlwind trip to India, the collection reflects the brightly coloured, wonderfully chaotic country, as viewed through the tourist filter of designers Anna Plunkett and Luke Sales.

The duo weaves traditional rich colours and cultural insignia through a vibrant collision of warped florals and cosmic prints, inspired by the Holy Land. They also ring in Pakistani ‘peace truck’ painter Haider Ali to backdrop the collection with painted scenes of oneness and joy.

The result is a fluid, trippy and so Romance Was Born.
