Runway Report: Pringle of Scotland AW18

Pringle of Scotland have become experts at seamlessly fusing the old with the new, but their fall/winter 2018 collection was perhaps the most traditional for some time. The Scottish Highlands were brought to London’s Soho this week with set design by James Shouli of Making Noise Quietly, and emphasis was firmly on reimagining traditional techniques and the brand’s iconic emblems.

Not only was the infamous lion logo seen emblazoned across a long-line knitted sweater, perfectly imperfect with unfinished stitching, but elsewhere their Argyle was reinvented by illustrator Frida Wannerberger. Prints and cultures were bonded together, with a leopard print seen against traditional Fair Isle on a knitted funnel neck jumper and a roomy coatigan.
Further highlights included an array of the softest brushed mohair, particularly an all-grey outfit with a shift dress and cardigan worn over turn-up jeans and covered in small grey Scottish agate slices. Differing tones of agate were also turned in to geometric brooches by designer Gala Colivet Dennison.
