Overview

An essential volume for anyone who appreciates timeless, contemporary clothes and the inspiring figures behind them.

In 1970, barely out of college for two years, Bill Gibb (1943–1988) was crowned “Designer of the Year” by British Vogue.  Though Gibb’s prolific career was sadly short-lived, the legacy of his visionary work continues to influence designers from Giles Deacon to John Galliano. This lavishly illustrated volume features many previously unpublished photographs that showcase Gibb’s hallmarks: a love of romance, soaring flights of fancy, and a devil-may-care dynamic that resulted in wildly eccentric combinations of checks, tartans, stripes, floral prints, and Fair Isle knits that had never been seen before. A stunning exploration of the themes and historical imagery that inspired Gibb’s designs, this book traces an astonishing career from Gibb’s breakout debut to his final catwalk show.
