Pringle of Scotland Menswear Fall/Winter 2020 Paris

Marretta has been at Pringle for less than a year, but he’s already putting a strong stamp on this collection.

The collection had a retro feel with men’s design director Giuseppe Marretta channeling his childhood memories of Atari video games and Manga comics – and the zodiac sign of the Leo.

He used recycled cashmere for a hoodie that was spray painted to look like the night sky, and played with the Pringle diamond, creating little intarsia uniform badges or abstracting it into origami-like shapes.

Cashmere sweaters with star maps and Leo intarsia patterns were  standouts, as were knits covered with pixel patterns.

WWD Critique: At Pringle for less than a year, Marretta is already making his mark, with lots of wearable styles, whimsical patterns and charm. Case in point: Instead of live models, Marretta showed the collection on big cardboard cutouts of Manga-style characters that he drew himself.
