  • Description

    COLOURS AND STRIPES ON JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING WAS THE FLORENCE LOOK WHEN THE FASHION HOUSES SHOWED THEIR SPRING AND SUMMER COLLECTIONS. BUT AMERICAN-BORN MILAN DESIGNER KEN SCOTT DROPPED A BRIGHTER BOMBSHELL STILL WHEN HE SHOWED MEN IN LONG SKIRTS, MEN IN BRIGHT FLOWER PATTERNED JUMP SUITS, AND MEN IN JET-EMBROIDERED EVENING SWEATERS.

    SO ALIKE WERE THE DESIGNS THAT SCOTT TEAMED HIS MODELS INTO FAIRS -- A GIRL WALKING ARM-IN-ARM WITH HER BOYFRIEND IN IDENTICAL RAINBOW-STRIPED TROUSER SUITS; A MAN WEARING AN ABSTRACT-PATTERNED SEAGREEN AND PINK INDIA-STYLE TUNIC AND TIGHT PANTS STROLLED IN WITH A GIRL IN MINI-DRESS OF EXACTLY THE SAME MATERIAL.

    THE MEN WORE EXACTLY THE SAME DAZZLING FLOWER PRINTS IN NYLON JERSEY AS THE GIRLS, IN TEE-SHIRTS AND PANTS, OR PLAY SUITS, AND EVEN THE SHOES WERE IDENTICAL.

    USUALLY SHOCK-PROOF JOURNALISTS AND BUYERS GASPED WHEN ONE BURLY MALE WALKED IN WEARING A FLOOR-LENGTH ARABIAN ROBE -- WITH A GIRL IN A PYJAMA SUIT.

    FOR EVENING - PRESUMABLY - SCOTT EMBROIDERED SWEATERS AND EDGED JACKETS WITH GLISTENING BLACK JET BEADS.

    EXPLAINING SCOTT'S SPECTACULAR PLUNGE INTO MEN'S FASHION, THE OFFICIAL PROGRAMME SAID HE IS "CONVINCED THAT THE YOUNG MAN CAN AND WANTS TO USE IMAGINATION IN HIS OWN CLOTHES FOR LEISURE HOURS."
