Pringle of Scotland Ready To Wear Fall Winter 2012 London
The iconic brand founded in 1815 presented a collection inspired by the return of Alistair Carr (the new creative director) to England and the memories of his youth. This collection recounted early nineties looks with a splash of light as it reinvented the school uniform by using waffle knit turtlenecks, those V-neck jumpers worn with a prim and proper shirt underneath and box pleating on coats. Mother would definitely approve. The chunky knits and zigzags, the skinny satin trousers, the flippy woven miniskirts and the bright pops of pink used in the deep-V jumpers bring forth the designer's background.
The black and white palette with forest green, burgundy and pops of pink shows subtle colour blocking used throughout the collection whether it be on the collars of coats or in the pairings of the pieces themselves. It's another thumbs up to Carr. Also worth mentioning are the pointed and high-heeled platforms by Chrissie Morris.
