Get Your Pringle of Scotland

We have a deep, dark secret: we love Pringles potato chips. It is embarrassing to admit but it is the sad truth. We love Pringles potato chips but not as much as we love this 1970s Pringle of Scotland lurex knit dress.

Pringle of Scotland was founded in 1815 and did mostly undies until they started manufacturing luxury knitwear. Their signature argyle sweaters were worn by Grace Kelly on her honeymoon. This dress is much more hip then a prim and classic cardigan but still feels glamorous and like something that we could imagine Veruschka having worn on a date with Franco Rubartelli. It is also beautifully made and handprinted in Scotland. That's right lassie! Scotland! Not one of RARE vintage's usual fashion capitals but, where we find a brilliant dress, we must go. We believe in vintage fashion without frontiers!

Shades of amber, eggplant, deep green and gold in a chic and cozy fitted sweater dress is a perfect choice for a winter evening in New York or an apres ski cocktail in St. Moritz.

1970s handprinted Pringle of Scotland lurex dress. Size 4/6.
