Into The Wild
Opening the show with the soundtrack of birdsong, Pringle of Scotland’s LFW display was drenched in nature. With bright lights radiating like sunshine, the models were dressed in natural tones and carried small bunches of flowers down the runway, with some of the designs even boasting Harley Weir’s images of the Shetland Isles coastline printed on them. A clear nod to the natural, it’s seriously making us want to head up north ASAP.
Creative director Fran Stringer is proving that knitwear isn’t all about your nan’s cardigans and hand-me-down jumpers. Showing her strength with use of fine fabrics, the line-up offered sheer cable-knit looks and light knits proving that knitwear doesn’t just have to be reserved for the colder months.
Wear ‘n’ Tear
One of the standout notes of the collection was the slight distressed look of some of the garments. No doubt one of the ways Stringer is trying to branch out from the old school aesthetic associated with the Pringle brand, the somewhat rugged appearance was a welcome breath of fresh air and a clear indication that Pringle are the pioneers in making knitwear cool.
