Joining the ranks of the brands deciding to take a break from fashion, Pringle of Scotland, the brand founded in 1815 by Robert Pringle in Hawick, in Scotland, has taken the difficult decision to pause their business.
In an official statement, the Scottish brand declared that its “E-Commerce and retail stores (when they re-open) will continue selling current ranges but production on forthcoming collections and all other activities have been halted.”
The company will use this time to asses the global situation, working in solidarity with their communities and analyse how their efforts can be best used to make positive changes in a vastly different, post-COVID landscape.
The Scottish brand,
renown for their use of cashmere, the introduction of the intarsia signature
argyle pattern and their twinsets, isn’t the only fashion label which has
decided to take a break from the system. At the end of February, Peter Pilotto,
the brand headed by design duo Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos, revealed
on Instagram that it would be taking a break to refocus the business and assess
what the future might look like for the London label.
