Massimo Nicosia, Pringle of Scotland’s new head of design, described his first women’s collection for the house as “pop meets Art Deco.” He raided the archives. “The challenge was translating the sharpness of well-pressed pleats into knitwear, and making it new,” said Nicosia. He reworked the brand’s signature kilt pleats, argyle patterns and knitwear in a range of yellows and pinks offset with navy, black and white. Pleats came in a ladder stitch that combined knits and wovens, as well as knife-pleated knit dresses in contrasting colors — white and cream; navy and black. The traditional argyle check was reincarnated on a sheer, double-layer T-shirt with diagonal stripes. Nicosia also updated the classic twin set in neon yellow waffle knit worn over a ladder stitch dress.
