1974 Bill Gibbs Colorful Metallic Hand-Knit Wool Applique Kimono Sweater Jacket

About

Timeless Vixen is excited to offer this breathtaking 1974 Bill Gibbs museum quality colorful hand-knit kimono sweater jacket. Bill Gibbs, the British iconic designer of the 1970's, drew his patterns on paper and with the knit wear guru Keffe Fassett turned his art into wearable fashion. His pieces are very collectible and found in museum's around the globe. The soft wool been worked into a gorgeous deco-dot pattern and the effect is really breathtaking. The care to knit this together after carefully selecting matching hues must have taken weeks. I love the sparkling crochet-knit circle applique work and wide kimono-sleeves. The silhouette is an ultra-flattering slight swing style. I love how thoroughly modern it feels! Perfect for over jeans or the dressiest evening event. The mark of a truly fashionable garment is that it remains stylish and timeless 40 years later, as does this sumptuous chic jacket. Measurements Bust:40 inches Hips:50 inches Sleeve Length:24 inches Total Length:48 inches This vintage Bill Gibbs London Couture designer hand-knit sweater jacket is in excellent condition with no rips,stains or holes. A wearable investment piece that will only continue to increase in value.
