Pringle at London Collections: Men

Forming his final offering for Pringle, today's menswear collection by Alistair Carr served as reminder of the (almost 200 year-old) brand's weighty legacy and the problematic nature of making that travel convincingly through to a contemporary audience. Here that weight was worn lightly and executed deftly with the house's signature argyle seeping through in distorted intarsia knits and layered within solid Breton sweaters. Tailoring refined the offering with simple patches of blocked colour levelling the sensitive, reserved explorations of pattern elsewhere.
