For Autumn/Winter 2011-2012, designer of heritage label ‘Pringle of Scotland’, Clare Waight Keller was inspired by the idea of the ‘urban gamekeepe. She said of the collection: ‘I was inspired by influences of country pursuits with a modern interpretation. Deconstructing classic Harris tweeds in to rugged textured knitwear brings the feel of an urban gamekeeper’.  The collection features the label’s signature knitwear and outerwear, coming in unexpected silhouettes, textures and patterns.

Unsurprisingly the collection was built around the stunning outerwear – Style and elements of traditional English shooting jackets and the waxed textures of decades gone by were mixed with the more contemporary parkas, blazers and coats. Stand-out pieces of outerwear include a fairisle-knitted biker jacket; a two-in-one tweed jacket, which has an adjustable length; and a waxed burgundy parka jacket with plenty of pocket and drawstring details.

Knitwear once again plays a key role in the Pringle of Scotland menswear collection – this season saw a few twists with the knitwear line, as sweaters are threaded with cut shearlings woven into the knit and knitwear becomes outerwear, mimicking the silhouettes of hooded parkas and biker jackets. The chunky knitwear line is combined with gamekeeper details such as over-sized fur collars and leather trims; and it was in fact the leather that was the real star of the show, coming in coats, jackets and trousers.

The muted autumnal colour palette featured khaki, brown and camel tones, interspersed with warmer red tones of autumnal leaves, as well as deep blacks. Of course it wouldn’t be a Pringle of Scotland collection without some check in there and this season the check came in the form of a few heritage tweeds.

So without further ado, we present the Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 Menswear Collection from Pringle of Scotland…Enjoy!
