  • Why they're turning the twinset into a work of art...

    When we heard the news that they’d snaffled Tilda Swinton to star in their new ad campaign, we thought a Pringle cool-over might be in the works.

    Now our spies tell us the Scottish brand is planning an achingly cool art tie-in event for London Fashion Week in February, our suspicions have been confirmed.

    The label are marking their 195th anniverary by teaming up with the Serpentine Gallery (who are also celebrating a birthday – their 40th – this year) to present a series of cool limited-edition knitwear collaborations.

    Called 195 Collaborations, the designs are all new twists on two staples – the twinset and the argyle knit – and include creations by figures including actress Tilda Swinton, Turner Prize-winning artist Richard Wright and the Scottish writer and artist Alasdair Gray. 

    The designs will be presented to the fashion press at a bash during London Fashion Week, where all the artists will be on hand.

    They will then be produced as limited-edition pieces (195 of each, to be precise) which will then be sold, with all proceeds going to benefit the Serpentine’s education programmes.

    All hail the ‘It knit…’
