Hosted in the Ballroom at The Savile Club, a gentleman’s club fit for the gentry, Pringle of Scotland presented their Autumn/Winter 2014 collection in natural light that shone on the girls as they sped through each parted room. The heritage label collaborated with Massimo Nicosia and material scientist and architect, Richard Beckett, and used advanced technologies to create a wearable and modern collection with the fusion of harsh three-dimensional textures with soft, flat knits.
Pringle made slouchy sexy, with cosy cable stitch, jacquard knits and slouched trousers. Mixing the urban with the refined, the collection showed classic silhouettes with a relaxed aesthetic. The brand stuck to a muted colour palette of black, off-white and grey, with occasional flashes of orange and red. Flawless, structured outerwear made a statement throughout the collection, with a stand out being the black wool coat with thick, geometric white lines that ran down the sleeves and lower half of the coat. Under this was a black wool turtleneck cocktail dress, with matching architectural lines running around the model’s hips which was simple but striking. Another stunning look was an oversized white roll neck with chunky cable knit details and panels exposing the skin, paired with slouched tuxedo trousers and Manolo Blahnik white courts.
One of the oldest names from the borders of Scotland, Pringle, did what they do best; heritage knitwear reinvented for the modern girl.
