Look at the pops of bright color, the clean lines questioned by graphic patterns, the unique take on gender-bending silhouettes. Known for classic and sophisticated cuts, Pringle of Scotland has taken a slightly different approach to its pre-fall 2012 collection; the collection is self-referential while taking a chance, clearly echoing the futuristic aura of Balenciaga, where the relatively new Pringle of Scotland designer Alistair Carr previously worked.
I adore the turtleneck + buttoned-up collar, masterfully layering fabulous textures (cashmere? leather? fur? yes) and creating looks that I think are unique and forward-thinking, yet can be pulled apart decade-by-decade. Oh, and those shoes are marvelous--the panels on the back can come off, if you're looking to tone it down a bit. But come on, why would you if you bought those shoes? Mmmmm.
