Just in time for Spring, Gucci has launched a selection of special pieces in its Epilogue collection incorporating the work of American fashion designer Ken Scott, who resided in Milan in the 60s and 70s, where he created his colourful patterned fabrics.
Given the name ‘the gardener of fashion’ he favoured large scale flowers in his creations including peonies, roses, poppies and sunflowers. He displayed these on designs for wallpaper, curtains, tablecloths and cushions, with bold colours and clashing prints. The Gucci Ken Scott collection includes clothing and accessories for men and women which have used designs from Scott’s rich archive, celebrating his floral and colourful patterns.
“Ken Scott was a really great creator of fabrics, he mapped out flowers with romanticism and flowers into pop culture. He treated flowers like shop signs, he multiplied them, turned them into something that stood out.”
Gucci Creative Director Alessandro Michele

The floral prints turn up unexpectedly on fleeces, down jackets, evening gowns, as well as silk accessories including headbands and printed on bags. Shop the full collection online at Gucci.com or book a private appointment with an Online Gucci Client Advisor by calling +44 207 495 1445.
