Pringle of Scotland
February 18, 2007 Milan
Riffing on and simultaneously moving beyond the company┐s foundations, Waight Keller used a woven fabric, printed trompe l┐oeil-style to look like an oversize knit, for a bubble dress and a lamp-shade number. Poufy volumes are still a fixation in Milan, butcredit her tenure at Guccishe also cut a convincing skinny pant. And she nailed evening, too. A burgundy silk-satin top worn over a matching skirt with pleats and a banded hem balanced polish and cool in equal measure. Like other outfits in this show, it proved Pringle can give young women what they really want.
