Pringle x Central St Martins

August 10, 2010 BY CAPSULESNEWS

Scottish brand Pringle has launched a campaign to restore and develop its archive in collaboration with the internationally renowned fashion school Central Saint Martins college of Art and Design. Students from the BA programme in Fashion History and Theory travelled up to Pringle's Northern roots to research and catalogue the existing archives, giving the would-be designers an excellent insight to the making of Scottish heritage knitwear. "No other knitwear brand in the world has the same recognition and respect as Pringle and this project is great because it's hands on, it's not about wearing white gloves. The point is not 'newness' but how the clothes are interpreted by existing people", said CSM fashion head honcho Louise Wilson. (Dazed Digital)
