Pringle of Scotland

London: For F/W 12, Alistair Carr infused Pringle of Scotland with a refined punk attitude, transforming the label’s signature knitwear into bold and sometimes even subversive pieces. Shades of orange so popular this season appeared in force, as did soft pastels, which were far from sweet combined with dark lips and shiny chevron pattern trousers. Fuzzy angora cardigans gave subtle contrast to sharply slit cashmere miniskirts and slick leather bomber jackets suggested a grown-up rebel. While staying within the bounds of his theme for Fall, Carr still provided many versions of the cozy turtleneck his customers expect. This time around the sweaters were fitted close to the body with both molded ruffles and modern ribbing at the shoulders. To close the presentation, Carr’s muse lightened up a bit, appearing in a long-sleeve knit dress embellished with wavy textures both feminine and experimental.—Nina Stotler
