In his final collection for Pringle of Scotland, design director Alistair Carr riffed on the argyle and the twinset, and worked in elements of English country dressing of the hunting, shooting and fishing variety. The result was a lineup of outerwear with multiple zips or flap pockets and a jacket with an inbuilt backpack that could be released via zips at the side. And if that didn’t satisfy fashion’s outdoorsy types, Carr also sent out ribbed jacquard camouflage knits in shades of orange or blue and sweaters woven to resemble Aertex fabric. Carr, who has been with Pringle for a little over a year, elongated the argyle shape for some of the sweaters and created a “shadow argyle” weave for others. The collection wasn’t all about knitwear, however: Carr also sent out collarless jackets made from dark denim wool for those cold, damp nights under British skies.
