Pringle of Scotland A/W 2015
Creative director Massimo Nicosia weaves leather, chain-mail and mink into the house's knitted heritage
Scene setting: This is a big year for Pringle, a bicentenary year in fact. To get the anniversary celebrations started, this season's showcase began with a preview of the Scottish brand's upcoming retrospective exhibition 'Fully Fashioned: The Pringle Of Scotland Story' at London's Serpentine Gallery, ahead of its opening at Edinburgh's National Museum Of Scotland in April.
Mood board: The exhibition tours the house's fully-fashioned silk underwear beginnings, its Royal Warrant status and archive pieces - including a 1960s cardigan borrowed from Caroline, Princess of Hanover's wardrobe, which was a hand-me-down from Grace Kelly. Meanwhile, on the runway, current creative director Massimo Nicosia continued to blur the line between knits and wovens, unpicking the house's knitted heritage by inserting strips of leather, chainmail or mink into his capes, sweaters and coats.
Best in show: The greatest delight at Pringle is always in the details and the Sackler Gallery's intimate set up offered a clear view of Nicosia's intricate leather fringed scarves, bias chainmail skirt and a basketweave-knitted cashmere gilet, all begging for a weekend get-away in Scotland.
