Knitwear doubled as outerwear for this collection of versatile classics designed by Massimo Nicosia, who recently rejoined Pringle from Nicole Farhi. There were knitted duffle coats and biker jackets, while woven cashmere mackintoshes had knitted backs and were lined with a water-resistant membrane. Fabric topcoats, meanwhile, had detachable, knitted shawl collars.
“The main idea was to keep a 100 percent knitwear focus, to work and rework knits as if they were fabrics, and to play with opposites,” Nicosia said. Jackets with a chalky diamond pattern that looked as if they were made from flannel fabric were actually knits. Sweaters were out in force, too, including textured tartan patterns inspired by the Pringle archives of the Seventies.
