Alistair Carr’s last collection for Pringle was a perfect reflection of where he leaves the brand, namely at the point where sharp modernity meets heritage.
The most obvious was an illusionary riff on its signature argyle pattern on a jumper that was woven in such a way as to create a 3D effect. Sports again played a role, from a utilitarian coated cagoule to an Aertex-mimicking honeycomb knit. Some of the most interesting looks were the matchy-matchy cool and rusty outfits and the camo knitwear and stripped-back blazers. It was a considered and low-key end to Carr’s time at the brand – as it should be.
In short Lots to take away – the innovative knits, soft outerwear and contrast fabric panels should all come through for spring.
