Welcome to Scout LIFE, a concept book exploring the world we live in and the things that surround us. Scout look beyond the present with a sharp eye on the future, taking in the social, environmental and global factors that will shape our lives. Navigates between the norm and the unexpected in our research and analysis of the home, interiors and fashion markets for Autumn/winter 2020-21.
From urban to rural, vintage or modern, rustic outdoors or cosy cocooning, simple or luxe, at home or in a hotel, single or partnered, SCOUT researched real locations and people and found inspiration in divers places. We visited designer pads and insprartional retail spaces, boutique hotels, inspiring restaurants and bars, followed food trends and discovered hot travel destinations, tried healthy pursuits and explored trends in wellbeing...all these factors inform your choices and the way you live. It's not just about a trendy "Lifestyle"; it's about a journey of LIFE. (Tony Bannister, Creative Director SCOUT)
