Drawing on his Scottish heritage, Bill Gibb became the designer who was lauded by many, including Vogue, for encapsulating the romantic spirit of the late 1960s and 1970s first under the Alice Paul boutique, Baccarat and finally his own label. His designs combined colour, pattern and fabrics in intoxicating combinations, using pleats and shape to create flattering and wearable eclectic pieces. Gibb’s heritage also gave him and greater understanding of traditional craft and, collaborating with textile designer Kaffe Fassett, produced a range of intricate and beautiful knitwear. His designs were sought by fashion icons of the day with Twiggy commissioning historically inspired pieces and his legacy visible in the work of current designers means that his pieces remain coveted by collectors across the world.
