SCHOOL-I-GANS
London:
Pringle of Scotland showed a collection that was equal parts UK public schoolboy and football hooligan, defined by a slew of baggy, cropped, 40s-style boy’s shorts and a number of blocky, luxe anoraks of the type favored by the 80s terrace terrors known as Casuals. The label held to tradition, producing a full complement of innovative knits, including crewneck sweaters decorated with unusual brick-and-mortar checks or harlequin diamonds composed of horizontal stripes that created an Op-Art effect, all the while paying homage to Scotland’s iconic argyles.  —Andrew Luecke
