Pringle threw their return to London party at the Saatchi gallery on Monday night. They didn't just present their Spring/Summer 2010 collection, but also debuted a short film by Ryan McGinley and starring Tilda Swinton. It featured the mythical looking actress running across the Scottish Highlands, climbing castle walls, sneaking through tunnels and eventually disappearing into the ocean - all while wearing a long, flowing gown. We stood in a white room while it projected onto two opposite walls and since everyone was facing different directions it was perfectly acceptable to alternate watching the gorgeous film with catching Tilda and Ryan hug or staring at Cecilia Dean's shoes or checking out the details on Mark Ronson's suit. When the show did start, in yet another super long white room, the clothes were easy - in a good way. Clare Waight Keller showed chunky knits over slinky t-shirt dresses, crocheted dresses layered over slips, sheer tops with trenches, slouchy pants and crinkled metallic shorts. They've come a long way from inventing the twinset.
Alistair Carr Out at Pringle of Scotland, Company Plans to Refocus Business
Just when we though the designer musical chairs had finally settled down, yet another fashion house has parted ways with its design director. Pringle of Scotland's spring 2013 menswear show in June will be Alistair Carr's final collection for the label, which shows in London. WWD says the decision was "mutual" and "amicable."
