ok...even i think that skirt isn't working so well...
but i usually like pringle... ...
those skirts are really very silly, they look 'uneasy' must be the length ..
I also hated the little cullote shaped bermuda jersey trousers, please keep them
in the showroom, no need to see those walking down the street.
Apart from this, amazing colour combination and fresh styled menswear, i guess i like Pringle too much to be too harsh on them
thanks for the photos
I like it a lot, but I agree about the skirt and the jersey pant-thingies...
i saw an interview on FTV with christopher bailey and his inspiration was a day on a beach in scotland.
he said the clothes reflect the unpredictable weather
There may be exceptions but generally:
Scotland + fashion = ...
Ok....hmmmmm.......the prints ans stuff: can you say 'Dries van Noten'?
how British of you
I sort of like the pointy shoes -- makes them look taller.
dare I say it, but I beg to differ. :grrr:
as for this collection though, I do not like these 'kilts' and knickerbockers at all... and other than that there's nothing really unusual about it, although the colours are quite nice.
PoC - Scotland is the producer of lots of the fabrics that are used in high fashion - cashmere, tweed, tartan, quality wools - all produced by strong Scottish companies & supplied to the big fashion houses in paris/milan/new york.
also see the Scottish influence this winter at Louis Vuitton & vivienne westwood has always been influenced by Scottish fabrics & dress. The japanese (who are a fashionable lot) love all things tartan.
Scotland has certainly had a part to play in this fashion game. But I am biased!
Mostly great stuff. Loved the s/sl cardigans. Loved the color combos also. The Knickers are terrible!!!!!!!!!!!I would not be caught dead in those. Or someone please kill me if you see me in them, cause I would have trulely been out of my mind.
mmmh... I kinda like Pringle but what I see here disappoints me a little bit.
that's quite a "dark" look, and at the moment I'm loving bright colours!
strangely this makes me want to have sex with christopher bailey
Yes, I know...perhaps I should have said Scotland and fashion design (my surname is Scottish but living in Newcastle biases you against all things northern).
i've worked with a great scottish tartan fabric house (name escapes me)
their wools are simply amazing and their deliveries are >very< reliable
there was a very good textiles company called Hunters of Brora that went under very recently that sold to all the big houses Lena - it was close to my home town & lots of people I was at school with went to work there- such a pity.
Otherwise the cashmere comapnies are Johnsons of Elgin, John Laing & another one whoes name escapes me at the moment.
PoCats - I suppose there haven't been many desiners who were scottish - I think Bill Gibb was from Aberdeen though....
