Pringle And Alistair Carr Part Ways-------
After a little over a year as design director at Pringle of Scotland, Alistair Carr (pictured) will be leaving the house. The departure was “a mutual decision,” according to Pringle CEO Jean Fang, and moving forward, the collection will instead be designed by an in-house team. The house plans to focus on retail development and “roll out smaller stores and emphasize core product, such as luxury cashmere and wool separates with a modern edge.”
For his part, Carr will finish off his Pringle career art-directing the Fall ad campaign, and he will show both his Spring ’12 menswear collection and Resort ’13 collection in June. He’s also going to keep working on the Pringle-sponsored Princess Grace: More Than an Image exhibition at the Nouveau Musée National de Monaco.
