Gucci Debuts Ken Scott Influenced Epilogue Collection
Gucci is releases special limited edition pieces in its Epilogue collection dedicated to incorporating the works of American fashion designer Ken Scott. Scott resided in Milan in the 1960’s and 70’s where he curated his iconic patterns and fabrics.
Scott favored flowers in his various creations including bulbs like peonies, roses, poppies and sunflowers. The Epilogue collection features both mens and women’s offerings. Buyers will find the floral motifs on a bevy of articles—fleeces, down jackets, silk accessories, handbags, shoes and more.
The collection launches February 18th and is set in a room overflowing with flowers and patterns—the idea being conceived by Alessandro Michele and shot by photographer Mark Peckmezian. The room features customized wallpaper, curtains, tablecloths and upholstery from Scott’s private collection.
In celebration of this anticipated release, the Gucci Podcast will make available a special episode featuring Professor of Fashion Cultures and Histories at London College of Fashion at the University of Arts London, Shahidha Bari. Bari narrates a story about Scott, his work and legacy.
