1970s Ken Scott Green Floral & Leaf Print Jersey Halter 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 in 1964. He was part of the print movement of the time that included designers like Emilio Pucci, Bessi and La Mendola. Each was creating their own hand done prints and designs which they then screened onto fabric to make into 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. I love whenever I find a great piece by him like this dress as it is a label that is not as common as the others are. This dress is stunning. The jersey is printed with a gorgeous mix of soft greens mixed with pops of periwinkle on the palest blue-lavender base. The skirt is long and has a slight flare below the banded waist. Depending on how the waist fits you it will either gather up the fabric above to softly drape over the waist, or as in the last full length shot I have provided here, sit in a longer, less shaped silhouette. Tye way it sits will also effect the length of the skirt. . A tie runs through the upper seam of the halter neckline and gathers the fabric in. At the back there is a small slit between the tie and where the zipper starts. This really gives it a sexy, Grecian feel. Excellent condition
