Scottish fashion brand Pringle of Scotland may have been around since the 1800’s but their designs are the very essence of modernity. Known for their luxurious cashmere and usage of knitwear, the Pre-Fall 2014 collection displays classic structures with a hint of oddity.

Pringle of Scotland’s Pre-Fall 2014 collection opens up with a white turtleneck underneath a marine blue argyle sweater, with shades of dark blue and tiny cutouts formed into diamond shapes. The sweater was paired with an unusual white knitted skirt, which had asymmetric hems finishing’s and small circular cutouts.

Pringle of Scotland has been worn by icons such as Madonna, David Bechkam, Nicole Kidman, Claudia Schiffer, and Grace Kelly. However because of a financial setback, the brand hasn’t been as prominent as before. With a much needed update though the brand has evolved to slowly reclaiming their place in fashion.

Although their usage of structure and asymmetry is often seen in other high-end designs, it is done so effortlessly in this collection. With the subtle use of theatrics, we’re reminded that each fashion design is truly a piece of art.
