Alistair Carr’s second showing as creative director at Pringle of Scotland centred on contrasts, but subtle and well-considered ones. It was at once prim and proper, with signature knit twin sets, sleek schoolgirl shirts layered under fluffy mohair V-neck cardigans and refined box-pleat skirts, jackets and coats. It then took to the streets, with sporty bomber jackets in punky textured leathers, skinny cigarette pants, sometimes in leather, and hipster-approved dip-dye hair. Colour blocks were contrasted too.
The core autumnal palette was accented with powder blue, ice cream pinks and punchy oranges, with contrast panelled trousers catching our eye and coloured collars bringing a nice touch of interest to boxy outerwear. Texture was present too, with ruffle knit jumpers and skirts teamed with smooth leathers.
