Marking a change in strategy, the cashmere ready-to-wear label staged a presentation rather than a runway show packed with luxe basics. “We did some soul-searching this season, and looked back at our heritage, and partly to the Fifties sweater girls,” said Jean Fang, Pringle’s chief executive officer and a member of the Hong Kong-based family that owns the brand, during the presentation in a suite at Brown’s Hotel. Among the standouts were ultralightweight cotton cashmere mélange twinsets with patch pockets in a rainbow of pastels and simple shift dresses that were woven fabric on bottom and knitted on top. Pringle also took a playful turn, showing what seemed to be traditional sweatshirts, but which were really tops made from stretch silk yarn that had a soft, spongy feel.
