Pringle of Scotland Spring/Summer 2015
Designers at Scottish knitwear company Pringle looked back at the brand’s archive for its SS15 menswear collection. The line was shown at three runway shows held throughout the second day of London Collections: Men this week. Pringle’s long-standing sports heritage was the core theme. Golf wear produced by the firm during the 1960s and 1980s was updated with influences from the Edwardian dandy and British subcultures. New stitching and 3D printing technology was also used to give traditional fabrics experimental new finishes. British Tattersall check featured heavily on pieces from trench coats and tailoring to causal items including parkas, polos and sweatshirts. The label’s head of design, Massimo Nicosia, applied the pattern in varying forms, as well as varying textures, fabrics and stitches. Colour was dominated by shades of blue, black and brown, though bold pops of orange appeared as both full block pieces and subtle collar trims. For shoes, the brand continued its partnership with footwear label Underground. The Creeper, known for its thick crepe sole, was reworked to include a leather body and tassles, in white, black and navy. Following the show the brand was quick to announce the SS15 collection will hit retailers and online at pringlescotland.com from December this year.
