LFW: Pringle of Scotland

Today everything was running late, once the first show is late there is evidently a knock on affect as each black car ferries each editor to the next show which is waiting patiently for them to arrive. Once we finally made it into the building, we noticed the entirety of ceiling was covered in large, white balloons, serving as light reflectors in the already all-white venue. After rumours of the show being held up as Kanye was due to arrive, the show began, and we knew we were in for a treat.

Structure and texture were central to this season’s Pringle collection (which seems to be the case in a lot of collections, by the way). As ever, the collection grounded itself on standout, perfectly tailored basic separates. Well tailored, straight trousers and armless jackets were brought to life by the smallest of details- the textured polo neck jumper worn subtly underneath, alongside a long camel coat with a mint green inside collar. It is these ingenious and delicate details that have kept this label strong for almost two hundred years.
To add a modern twist to the collection, models had dip dyed hair in an arrow of colours- from purple to brown. Again, this wasn’t a huge theme or an overpowering of the clothes, but simply a suggestion that the Pringle woman is on trend in the modern world, and she certainly stands out from the crowd.

Favourites had to be the super-structured, wave like jersey dress and the pink and mint-green fluffy cardigans that are sure to be on those very same editors’ back come this time next season.
