Worn by famous faces

Pringle of Scotland was founded by Robert Pringle in 1815. Based in the Scottish borders, the company first produced hosiery and underwear, later adding cashmere. 

Pringle’s distinctive argyle diamond pattern was inspired by the tartan of Clan Campbell of Argyll, in particular their ‘tartan hose’. 

The design went on to be adopted as a favourite for golf clothing – popularised by the Duke of Windsor and his set who wore it with their plus-fours in the 1920s. 

Grace Kelly was among the famous fashionistas to champion Pringle’s argyle patterned knitwear in the 1950s. The eye-catching ‘look’ has since been revived with Pringle’s Reissued collection as recently as 2019.

BETA International is at the NAEC Stoneleigh on 11 – 13 September.
