The late, great designer Bill Blass founded his company in 1970 with a collection that reflected his personal aesthetic of understated sophistication. Over the decades Blass became the go-to clothing designer for socialites and ascended to the highest echelon of American fashion — admired for his architectural designs, meticulous tailoring, and experimentation with reversible fabrics, stitching, and negative space. From elegant suits, dresses, pants, perfume, and shirts to every-occasion shoes, watches, and other accessories, the name Bill Blass remains a synonym for sporty and sleek clothing that never goes out of style.
