Wool Crepe & Gold Brocade Box Pleated 3 Pc Set, 1970s
An incredible vintage Bill Gibb designer three piece set, made out of a luxurious wool crepe. By one of the best and most underrated designers of the later half of the 20th Century, Bill Gibb created incredible, dramatic masterpieces and this set is a perfect example of that. The top and skirt are both box pleated, which creates a column style silhouette with a slight peplum created by the pleats of the top sitting on the pleats of the skirt.
The jacket creates such a statement, with long slim fitting sleeves that are puffed at the shoulder - this ethereal jacket is open at the front to throw on nonchalantly over the ensemble, but would look just as amazing dressed down with a pair of jeans. The metallic gold lamé brocade is almost renaissance in style, with box pleats which creates fullness in the back and incredible movement. Truly museum worthy!
