Pringle spent some time in the news this year when the fashion world played another game of designer musical chairs. Former creative director Clare Waight Keller left shortly before being announced as the new designer for Chloe and the Scottish heritage brand brought in former Balenciaga designer Alistair Carr as creative director. What was most alarming with the choice is that Carr, who is just 36 years old, has never worked with knitwear, a longtime staple of the brand. There were mentions of a modern, more graphic turn for the brand and we definitely saw that in execution. Geometric prints and shapes were seen alongside the label’s signature knits, with layered and draped dresses followed by structured shifts and outerwear.
