Mandate, ECAL 2015


by Pauline Saglio

When you match the prints of prints with a famous school of art and design, the result can only be explosive! 
Emilio Pucci pairs with the Ecole Cantonal d’Art de Lausanne (ECAL) for a collaboration born at Granaiolo, the brand’s archive and talent center nearby Florence. During a three-day workshop led by Vincent Jacquier, a selection of students and assistants from the school’s Visual Communication Department had the opportunity to explore and reinterpret signature prints. 
Interactive Scarves is the first of a series of surprising projects originated from their endeavors and achievements during the workshop. 
The designer Pauline Saglio has developed a three-pieced installation that proposes an innovative and poetic way to discover a scarf. The colors, shapes and compositions of each Emilio Pucci print are enhanced by light and sound to alter the perception of the iconic object, offering visitors a magical experience that stimulates all of the senses.
