Although Massimo Nicosia's recent foray into 3-D printing was not reprised for Resort, Pringle of Scotland
made further moves to modernize. The brand's signature twinsets were reimagined in a techy, light honeycomb mesh (seen throughout the collection), and could please even those customers in whom the word twinset
might typically strike fear. This offering was sporty and spare, so much as to feel a bit clinical around the edges, smacking of the stuffiness—albeit modernly—that so many heritage lines of the Pringle ilk strive to combat. Adding to that sense of severity was a palette of largely navy, white, and washed-out pastels (a double crepe topper in an unusual mint shade felt particularly harsh). But it wasn't all stark stuff. A wide swath of trim in a metallic sea-foam brocade dressed up a plain white top, and a cricket sweater in the aforementioned mesh was a particular standout, laced through with chunky cotton strips; it felt modern, distinctive, and decidedly Pringle. Austerity aside, there was a sense of lean, classic sophistication that should do well—particularly in the Chinese market, where the line has lately announced a major expansion.
