For Autumn/Winter 2011-2012, ‘Pringle of Scotland’ designer Clare Waight Keller presented a collection full of blanket capes and ponchos, with similar ideas translated into skirts and cigarette trousers, all in an autumnal shades of cinnamon, nutmeg, camel and grey, interspersed with rich oxblood, petrol blue and teal that give a luxurious feel.  Keller said of her collection: “The autumn/winter 2011-12 women’s collection is an eclectic mix of vintage knit jacquards reworked in opposing scales and colours as if editing your grandmother’s vintage clothes in the perfect modern wardrobe”.

For the collection Keller looked to heritage pieces from the brand’s history for inspiration – a donation of vintage garments from a house model from past Pringle of Scotland collections kicked off a project with Central St, Martins. Keller took elements from the vintage garments and brought them up to date, creating a younger more contemporary silhouette. Classic Pringle knits and simple knits and simple short dresses were modernized with bolder fabrics and contemporary detailing, such as accentuated collars and leather accents and trims. Key recurrent themes in the collection were the stylish capes, heavy argyle and fair-isle knits, mid-length tweed dresses and ankle-grazing cigarette pants with super-slim silhouettes.

So without any further delay, we present the Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 womenswear collection from Pringle of Scotland…Enjoy!
