New York: Pringle of Scotland has been in a state of flux ever since Claire Waight Keller left for Chloe last year. Alistair Carr was only around for a few seasons, and now the collection is being helmed by the house’s design team. Spring was the team’s first solo outing, and it proved somewhat problematic, but this time around, they seem to have found their footing. With tall boots styled over slim pants, there appeared to be a subtle equestrian inspiration, but the focus remained on the house’s signature knits. Fine-gauge ribbed cardigans, textured dresses, and zip-neck pullovers were among the many knit styles on display. The designers peppered in airy chiffon, lustrous silk charmeuse, and luxurious leather items, adding to the range of textures. Aside from a few awkward asymmetrical pieces, the collection was filled with appealing separates and signaled a turnaround for what has been a somewhat turbulent time for the label.–Joanna Manganaro
