NOW IN ITS FOURTH SEASON, THE PRINGLE 1815 COLLECTION DRAWS LOOSELY ON THE
QUINTESSENTIAL ENGLISH COUNTRY HOUSE FOR INSPIRATION WHILE CONTINUING TO
REINTERPRET BRITISH ICONS BY BRINGING KNIT ELEMENTS TO WOVENS.
THE FABRICS AND TRIMS HAVE BEEN INFLUENCED BY TRADITIONAL INTERIOR UPHOLSTERIES AND
FINISHES, ILLUSTRATED BY A CORDUROY BOW FRONT DRESS OR TWEED FUNNEL NECK COAT TO A
BRAIDED TRIMMED FAIRISLE SCARF OR METALLIC EMBROIDERED TULIP SKIRT.
KNITS ARE BOLD IN COLOUR AND STRONG IN STRIPES YET FEMININIZED BY RUFFLE AND BOW
DETAILS. FLORAL AND JACQUARD PATTERNS, AS WELL AS TEXTURES, CLASH TO CREATE STRONG,
SEAMLESS PIECES.
STAIN GLASS WINDOWS AND COUNTRYSIDE FOLIAGE ARE THE SOURCES OF INSPIRATION FOR THE
EXCLUSIVE LASER CUT PRINTS FOUND IN THE COLLECTION. FROM A SOLID SILK DRESS WITH
PRINT HEM AND PAINTED PRINT BUBBLE SKIRT TO A SILK SWIRL PRINT DRESS, THESE GRAPHIC
AND ABSTRACT ELEMENTS PLAY NICELY AGAINST MORE TRADITIONAL KNIT PIECES.
THE COLOUR PALETTE TOO HAS THE WARMTH AND DEPTH OF COUNTRY TONES, FROM ENGLISH
RED TO FOUNDATION BEIGE, VINTAGE ROSE, AND JASMINE. VINTAGE CERISE, MARS ORANGE, AND
CHARTREUSE PROVIDE BLASTS OF COLOUR AGAINST THE MORE SOMBER ELEMENTS OF FOREST
GREEN, OLIVE, HEATHER AND SOLID GREY, AND BLACK.

MENSWEAR TAILORING INFLUENCES ARE APPARENT IN OUTWEAR, FROM A DOUBLE BREASTED
PEA COAT TO A SHORT TRENCH COAT; PLEATS, TRIMS OF KNIT, SATIN, AND VELVET APPLIQUE, AND
KNITTED PANELS PROVIDE A SOFT CONTRAST.

FOR THE HOLIDAY SEASON, A CLEANER YET SILKY SILHOUETTE IS EXPLORED. METALLIC
EMBROIDERIES, BRAIDED TRIMS, VELVET APPLIQUES, AND SILKS WITH SILVER JACQUARDS
PROVIDE A PARTY EMPHASIS. BLACK AND CREAM CONTRAST PATTERNED SKIRTS AND DRESSES
HAVE BEEN DIP-DYED AND PRINTS ECHO WALLPAPER DAMASKS; ALL APPROPRIATE FOR FESTIVE
AFFAIRS. THE PALETTE IS ONE OF MIDNIGHT, BLACK, DARK CLOUD, AND CREAM, WITH SHOTS OF
ROYAL BLUE; GRAPHIC AND PLAYFUL.
