Pringle of Scotland Spring 2012: Art Meets the Archive
Monday was a good day for both clothes and celeb spotting at the London shows. While London front row faves Irina Lazareanu and Harley Viera-Newton chatted at Pringle of Scotland, Tilda Swinton quietly and gracefully swanned in and took her seat. She's completely stunning, and rather unassuming in real life, posing for pictures then quietly sitting down. And tall! Pringle should have begged her to take to the runway for them. Speaking of the runway, you'll recall that Pringle has had some creative director upheaval. Clare Waight Keller went to Chloé early in the summer; this is Alistair Carr's first collection for the label. For his first outing, he mined the 1960s and the Pringle archive, specifically riffing on the twinset.
