massimo nicosia & pringle s/s2014

Replacing Clare Waight Keller, former designer at Pringle of Scotland is a difficult agenda. Massimo Nicosia has made a credible stab at it. Of course knitwear and Pringle are virtually synonymous so naturally it is a major feature of Nicosia's S/S 2014 collection. His designs are a subtle hommage to the company's history. Fashion reporter Afsun Qureshi quotes Nicosia, "I feel I am as much an archivist of Pringle as designer. I have to preserve the past. But also I have to move forward by developing fabric technology, and create something very light out of something quite heavy. I have to create structure out of knit that is known for its very lack of structure."
