1970s Bill Gibb Moon & Buddha Jacket
This is a truly iconic Bill Gibb design from the famous Moon and Buddha collection of 1975. It was inspired by a little post card Kaffe Fasset has showing tiny Buddhas all lined up. Kaffe worked them into the pattern, and paired the little figures with giant psychedelic moons. It was a huge success and remains today to be one of his best know works. It is a truly wonderful wool knit. The colors are incredibly striking and so very easy to wear. The kimono cut with its amazing sleeves is the perfect showcase of the beautiful pattern. It is a bold and important piece of fashion history.
