1960s Ocean Blues Ken Scott Hand Printed Jersey Dress
Ken Scott was an American who moved to Italy and ended up in Milan, first designing scarves for Falconetto in the 1950s and eventually opening his own ready to wear line as of 1964. He was part of the print movement of the time that included designers like Emilio Pucci, Bessi and La Mendola. Each was creating vivid prints and designs and creating beautiful clothing for the jet set crowd. Scott's garments have a touch of the American sportswear movement to them mixed with that European glamor and I love whenever I find a great piece like this dress. It is stunning - the hand printed Ban-lon jersey is printed with a gorgeous mix of ocean blues mixed with pops of purples and greens. The skirt is long and has a wonderful flare that swoops out from the curved in waist and simple top. A plunging neckline has a tie that loops through the base of the V and causes it to plunge just a little bit more. This really emphasizes the bust and gives it a sexy feel. Excellent condition!
