A Sartorial Salute to Robin Gibb

Posted by Elizabeth Mollo on Tue, May 22, 2012 at 3:56 PM

Geez, the music world has really taken a blow the last couple of weeks, with the latest falling star being Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees, who lost his battle with cancer on Sunday. As a huge Bee Gees fan, this news was a major bummer for me. Many only know of the Bee Gees as the disco gods they were, but they have a huge (and amazing, Bee Gees' 1st and Idea being two of my all time favorite albums) catalog from the 1960s. Before the Bee Gees donned their matching leisure suits, they dressed up and far out like the best of them. Below are some great examples of Robin's style from the 1960s, with some of the disco stuff thrown in because it's just too awesome not to include. R.I.P., Robin. Say hi to Maurice and Andy for me.
