“An ethereal holiday in Scotland”, read the show notes describing Massimo Nicosia’s collection for Pringle of Scotland, which featured a series of long dresses and satiny pieces perhaps unsuited to damp, unpredictable climate of old Caledonia but perfect for a holiday, with fluid loungewear and dresses worn under comfortable oversize knits. Predominantly basic garments were lifted by the work done on the knitwear: intarsia, perforations, crochet-effect mesh, at times twisted with strips of rubber or leather, fraying, naïf floral appliqués, silk panels assembled to create the argyle motifs seen throughout the collection. The colours were pale and ethereal, ça va sans dire.
