Pringle Autumn/Winter 2012/13

The requisite pearls were left high and dry as Pringle designer Alistair Carr today presented a defined and modern proposal of the house's traditional codes at the Phillips de Pury gallery. Reworked kilts evolved into box-pleats racing down the back of wool coats and the original purveyor of the twinset opened its supposed buttoned-up formality through the use of sensual Georgia O'Keefe-esque draperies created by unbuttoned layers of silk. Knitwear was also explored in greater depth than last season with a finely tuned balance of the constructed and the caressing seen in rounded cardigans standing out from the body and knit dresses featuring linear arrangements of frills.
