Circa 1969-1970 silk wide tie from Ken Scott with its original paper tag still attached features a kaleidoscopic print in shades of light blue, lavender, violet and turquoise. It is tipped in black and taupe logo silk.
The designer’s label, which reads “Ken Scott, 100% Silk, Made in Italy” is positioned as the keeper for the smaller blade. The paper tag attached to the small end reads “Ken Scott, Prezzo Imposto”.
Indiana-born Ken Scott trained as a painter at the Parsons School of Design and established a Milan-based textile business, Falconetto, with an Italian partner in the mid-1950s. His fabrics were so highly sought-after by Italian couturiers that Scott decided to begin designing clothes himself, and soon afterward to put his own label on them. By the late 1960s his bright, psychedelic prints had become as desirable as Pucci’s. He created fashions for both men and women, with each design produced in a “his ‘n hers” pair.
Measuring 55” long and 4.25” across the front blade, this striking and collectible tie is in excellent, unused condition.
