The cheerful, colorful, and pop world of Ken Scott joined the creativity of Alessandro Michele. Both with a passion for floral print. A universe that now comes to life in the Gucci Epilogue capsule collection: Ken Scott. “Ken Scott was a great fabric maker,” said Gucci’s Creative Director. “He represented flowers with romanticism and introduced them to pop culture. He treated the flowers as shop signs and made them stand out in an enchanting way. I love his work because I’m obsessed with floral prints“.
The proposal of garments and accessories retraces the prints of the 60s and 70s, found in the vital archive, made by the Ken Scott Foundation and today owned by the Mantero family. To make this project even more unique, a Gucci Podcast with special guest Shahidha Bari. Writer, academic, critic, and professor of Fashion Cultures and Histories at the London College of Fashion of the University of the Arts London will tell the American designer’s life, work, and influence on contemporary fashion.
Ken Scott’s floral print feminine range includes a coat, t-shirt, sweatshirts, lingerie, tops, trousers, skirts, blazers, shirts, and dresses with flowing lines. Bright and impressive colors characterize all garments. Male garments include a coat, jacket, jacket, and pants suit, down jackets, shirts, and tracksuits.
The Gucci Tennis 1977 lace-up sneakers and slip-ons and the Pursuit are proposed in a variant in black fabric with a print depicting the artist’s initials KS and the gold GG logo. The Pursuits and a Screener sneaker model are also available in a vibrant Ken Scott floral print called ‘April Garden’. It is characterized by colorful flowers with a strong visual impact. The Screener sneakers also feature blue suede inserts on the back and blue and red Web tape. The Pursuit floral sliders feature a prominently woven GG motif in blue.
