Scott Wilson was busy completing an MA in millinery at the Royal College of Art when he was awarded a scholarship with Karl Lagerfeld in Paris. He leapt at the opportunity, of course. The experience set a benchmark for this young talent, developing his vision and the way it is realised.
When Wilson established his own jewellery label afterwards, he would sell to tastemaking stores such as Colette, Harvey Nichols, Harrods, Liberty and Luisa Via Roma.
Inspired by travel, far-flung civilisations and modernist architecture, the quality that most gives his jewellery its silhouette, Wilson has collaborated on runway pieces for a roll call of fashion’s leading names, from Thierry Mugler couture, Hussein Chalayan, Rifat Osbek, Burberry, Givenchy couture and Gaultier Paris couture to Pringle of Scotland, Pollini, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Peter Pilotto and New Power Studio.
As well as working on projects with Kylie Minogue, Nicole Kidman, Madonna, George Michael, MAC cosmetics, Lindt, Repetto Paris and Absolute Vodka, Wilson has conjured bespoke editorial pieces for some of fashion’s most revered stylists – Jane How, Patti Wilson and Sarah Richardson, appearing in Vogue Italia, W, Numéro and Vogue Japan to name a few.
Drawing on his love of collaboration and ideas exchange, today Wilson dedicates himself to creative consultancy, working with leading international houses as well as creating desirable commercial jewellery collections for ASOS, Jaeger and AQ/AQ. It’s a natural (and modern) culmination to creating spectacular one-offs for others.
