Runway Report: Pringle of Scotland SS16

Spring/Summer 2016 looks to be one of those seasons where established, heritage brands really show what they’re made of. As Pringle of Scotland celebrates its’ 200 year anniversary, creative director Massimo Nicosia chose a technically brilliant mix of macrame, crochet and laser-cut detail for next season’s offering.
The collection had a subtle sportswear focus, all clean lines, creams with sporty red edging and racer-backs. Shapes were simple with mostly long-lines, leaving finishes, texture and embroidery to do the talking. Touches of femininity were seen in fluid silk palazzo pants and a quilted, pale lime silk used on layers of a midi-skirt, camisole and panelled shift.
A knee-length city short was a staple look, as was the deep-v neckline of sweaters, covered by a intricate panel of contrasting texture. Elsewhere Nicosia played with shirtings, showing elongated sleeves – a running theme this London Fashion Week – and crochet florals, embroidered in a relief, creating beautiful focal points on otherwise minimal silhouettes.
