an excerpt taken from Ken Scott's website
"Born in 1918 in Indiana - USA, Scott showed a strong passion for painting at a young age, and this led him to study in New York. These were intense and fertile years of success and experimentation. Following his free and curious spirit, he moved to Europe in 1946. First to Paris and the French Riviera, where Scott led a bohemian life, and arriving in Milan in 1955. And it was here that Scott founded the Falconetto brand.
Starting from textiles, the artist revolutionised the style of that time. Bright and sunny colours, unpredictable combinations, and joyful flowers became his "trademark." Since 1962 he signed collections of clothes and accessories making him internationally renowned. Scott’s rise was unstoppable, his production varied, and his research and method were avant-garde. His unbridled imagination and his inherent irony was accompanied by extraordinary technical skills and his most diverse creations were undeniably immortal."
