4 Questions For: Pringle's Claire Waight Keller
In this new video series, some of our favorite designers spill on their inspirations and Fashion Week survival tips.
Props to Pringle for having the most celebrity-stocked front row of thefall collections so far--there was Janet Jackson, Courtney Love(sporting specks of glitter dust in her hair--such an unexpectedly prettyidea I'm trying it out the next party I go to), Ryan McGinley, and TildaSwinton. But it was honestly the clothes that took center stage.Allthings Scottish were the theme this season for creative director ClaireWaight Keller: fisherman's wader pants (one of Claire's favoritepieces) with exaggerated cuffs, Aran knits turned up in felted cablecashmere blanket sweaters and dresses, and kilt skirts werereinterpreted in a variety of ways. All in hues of moss, clay, andyellow against grey and black. While usually in the grand scheme ofthings, menswear trends follow one season behind womenswear trends,here at Pringle it's been flipped--the women's collection takes itscues from the menswear that showed in January--and it totally works.
The long shearling cuff is becoming a huge trend in outerwear here in London, and here lends a luxuriously feminine vibe to a menswear-inspired cashmere coat.
One ofClaire's favorite pieces -- fisherman gear-inspired slouch trousers.
