Pringle of Scotland

London: When examining Pringle of Scotland’s Pre-Fall 2012 collection, it comes as no surprise their designer spent time working for Balenciaga. Alistair Carr’s work is technically masterful, incorporating many unexpected elements for a sporty line such as Pringle, updating their classic basics with twisted seams and tubular, beaded patterns. Despite Pre-Fall’s foundation of athletic-inspired outerwear and wearable separates, it is clear that experimental luxury were keywords for the season, manifested in the form of pony-hair bomber jackets and dimensional knits. A grounded, traditional palette of deep oxblood and evergreen was also shaken up, infused with targeted, modern splashes of vibrant poppy red and ending with a wildcard graffiti print. Layered, textural and innovative, Pringle of Scotland is quickly exceeding expectations. —Nina Stotler
