From classic Scottish cashmere to bold argyle diamonds and Grace Kelly’s twinset to golfing icons, Pringle of Scotland has embraced the traditional, the innovative and the unexpected throughout its two hundred year history. Mirroring the brand’s own longevity, its products are built to last. Our Repurposed collaboration encapsulates all of these qualities and more, while reintroducing the concept of creating from what already exists. Why? Because we should all be working hard to use all of this waste the fashion industry creates.
Pringle of Scotland has long supported mindful making. From preserving traditional knitwear techniques to highlighting the versatility and timeless appeal of wool, the British brand has often looked for creative ways to tell these stories. At a time when the fashion industry needs to strive to be more sustainable and produce better, Pringle has tried to put better practices in place in house, and celebrate all the brilliant ways of reusing, recycling and transforming old fabrics and clothes.
Building on the cut, stitched and collaged debut capsule introduced last year, the latest Repurposed collection continues our shared approach to conscious craftsmanship, creating new clothes from vintage Pringle of Scotland clothes and fabrics. Through repurposing materials rediscovered from corners of their London design studio and Hawick-based HQ, the Pringle of Scotland design team were able to reimagine and rework unwanted garments into handmade, one-of-a-kind pieces.
As Repurposed weaves new life from old wool, we wanted to shoot the collection on a selection of talent from our close-knit LN-CC community.
