Pringle Pringle has always had a bit of reputation as the frumpy old woman of fashion, with its collections of  sensible knitwear. That could be set to change though: this Spring the brand launches its new 1815 line - and although the name is a reference to the year Pringle was founded, they promise this line will have a more contemporary feel to it than their usual offerings.

Look out for the new line within the next couple of months, and if you do decide to splurge on it, know that you're in good company - Claudia Schiffer has apparently placed an advance order for the clothes, which will include broderie anglaise dresses and - what else - smock tops.
