Roberts was born in deptford, south-east london and went on to become one of the in-crowd of swinging 1960s london. In 1969 he moved to 430 kings road with trevor miles and launched a fashion and furniture shop called mr freedom. It was the antithesis of hippie fashion which was built around a hard-edged, pop inspired look full of bright, bold, blocks of colour.
