Massimo Nicosia, head of design for men’s and women’s wear at Pringle, took the tartan kilt as his inspiration for this tightly focused, textured collection of knitwear and woven separates. Looks included a wraparound mackintosh-style coat with a kilt buckle, and cotton poplin jackets with delicate horizontal and vertical pleating that mimicked the intersecting lines of a tartan weave. The overall look of the jacket resembled seersucker, but with a more interesting texture. The kilt influences carried over into knitwear, with cotton and silk sweaters made in intarsia tartan patterns, some of them flat, others with a 3-D effect and a spongy feel.
