1970's Bill Gibb Couture Peach & Lilac Lace Three-Piece Caftan Gown Set
An ethereal and ultra rare Bill Gibb of London couture three-piece ensemble dating back to the mid-1970's. His pieces are very collectible and found in museum's around the globe. Bill Gibb, a forgotten fashion hero from the Scottish Highlands, incarnated the romantic essence of British style. While attending the Royal College of Art his fellow fashion students were Ossie Clark and Zandra Rhodes, who shared an unbridled vision. The design elements on this ensemble are genius; heavenly lilac and peach cotton sheer lace partly lined in stunning baby blue silk. The sleeveless blouse has a fantastic adjustable draw-string detail for a flattering nipped waist. The matching maxi skirt has a brilliant duel layered button down construction. The free size draped jacket with front closure really brings the whole bohemian chic vibe together. I love the draped goddess caftan silhouette which is so effortless to wear. Would make a stunning resort or wedding guest look. It's a timeless set simply because it exudes an undeniably unique flair, and yet remains incredibly current.
