Knitting, in all its iterations, was the inspiration behind this fun, arty Pringle of Scotland collection, which drew from the work of visual artists such as Louise Bourgeois. Head of design Massimo Nicosia — whose silhouettes were long, layered and lean — knitted fabric ribbons or leather strings, and used crochet and other classic techniques to create webbing in various shapes and sizes. He also mixed knits with woven fabrics, as in a breezy cotton tennis dress adorned with a handful of white macramé flowers.
Lightweight spiral-seam shirts had crocheted seams, while models wore apronlike tops made from knitted and macramé leather. Dresses were fashioned from a mesh of bouncy silk. There was a guipure lace coat cut to mimic the look of a knit, while dresses had a trompe l’oeil crochet print. Models, meanwhile, carried bags made from knitted leather shoelacelike strips. It was sophisticated, thought-provoking outing full of statement pieces.
