NEW YORK, NY April 28, 2015

Founded in 1815 by Robert Pringle, heritage knitwear brand Pringle of Scotland – best known today for its luxurious cashmere and innovative artist collaborations – began as a hosiery and undergarment manufacturer. By the early part of the 20th-century, the brand had begun applying the techniques used to make their undergarments to create some of the first knitted outerwear. Now the fashion brand, which is one of the world’s oldest, is celebrating its 200th year with an exhibition at the National Museum of Scotland.

“Fully Fashioned: The Pringle of Scotland Story” is curated by fashion historian and academic Alistair O’Neill and explores the rich history of the brand with garments sourced from royal wardrobes, the Hawick Museum, the Women Golfers’ Museum, and Pringle’s own archive. Among the brand’s contributions to the history of fashion are the argyle print and twinset, both iconic prep-school staples, which will be displayed respectively with a 1960s cashmere cardigan and an array of twinsets including a 2010 design by actress Tilda Swinton.

Swinton is not the first star of the screen and stage to collaborate with the brand. In fact, Pringle began capitalizing on celebrity personalities as early as the 1950s, photographing stars like Margaret Lockwood and Moira Shearer.

Royals also have a long-standing affinity for Pringle of Scotland. A sweater worn by Queen Elizabeth II will be exhibited alongside a letter from Her Majesty thanking Pringle of Scotland for the gift. A 1960s sweater owned by Princess Grace of Monaco will also be on view.

Georgina Ripley, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Fashion and Textiles at the National Museum of Scotland said of the show, “Pringle of Scotland has a long, rich and complex history, and has evolved to become one of the world’s top heritage fashion brands. It is fitting that this touring exhibition will debut in Pringle’s bicentenary year at the National Museum of Scotland – home to one of the largest and most comprehensive collections of fashion and textiles in Britain – and it promises to be a must-see for fans of fashion and design.”

 

“Fully Fashioned: The Pringle of Scotland Story” will be on view at the National Museum of Scotland from April 10 to August 16, 2015. From there it will travel to the US and Asia.

NEW YORK, NY April 28, 2015

Today, the President of the Italian Republic Sergio Mattarella has awarded the Leonardo Career Prize to Rosita Missoni Jelmini, honorary president of Missoni SpA, for representing Italian excellence in fashion and design all over the world.

Carlo Calenda, Deputy Minister of Economic Development, Luisa Todini, Comitato Leonardo president, and Riccardo M. Monti, I.C.E. president, all attended the ceremony.

The initiative, which has reached its 20th edition, is promoted by Comitato Leonardo, founded in 1993 by Senator Sergio Pininfarina, Senator Gianni Agnelli, Confindustria, I.C.E. and a group of entrepreneurs, with the aim of promoting and reinforcing the image of Italian excellence in the world.
Every year, Comitato Leonardo grants these prestigious awards, celebrating Italian creativity, innovation and expertise. This year’s winners include:

– Leonardo Prize to Nerio Alessandri
– Leonardo Italian Quality Prize to Dainese, Dallara, Damiani and Rubelli
– Leonardo Career Prize to Rosita Missoni Jelmini
– Leonardo Prize for Start-ups to Gruppo Ennova 
– International Leonardo Prize to Jeffrey R. Immelt
The Leonardo Career Prize, awarded since 2004, is given to people who have contributed to reinforcing the image of our country, thanks to excellence in their profession.

Rosita Missoni was born in Golasecca, in the province of Varese, to a family of textile entrepreneurs specializing in the production of robes and embroidered shawls. In 1953, she married Ottavio Missoni and together, they developed a knitwear business in a small workshop in Gallarate. Ottavio and Rosita’s tastes and creativity gave life to a small knitwear collection, with innovative workings and colour matches that were completely unique, creating an unmistakable style.  The first runway show in 1966 at the Teatro Gerolamo in Milan proved hugely successful, thanks to the presentation of a collection that broke all traditional molds in the use of knit. Missoni garments give life to a new graphic interpretation of clothing with zigzags, lines, waves and space-dyed threads in patchwork, geometric and floral patterns. The finished products captivated sophisticated Italian and foreign customers. Today, Missoni is one of the most widely respected ambassadors of Italian fashion and design around the world. As of 1997, Rosita has passed the baton on to her children Vittorio, Luca and for fashion, to Angela, dedicating herself to the Missoni Home line, for which she is the artistic director. Over the years, Ottavio and Rosita Missoni have recieved many prestigious national and international artistic and academic awards, including the “Oscar of Fashion” Neiman Marcus Fashion Award (1973), the “Honorary Royal Designer for Industry” (HONRDI) honorary degree from the Royal Society of Art in London (1997), an honorary degree from the Central Saint Martin College of Art and Design in London (1999), a “Doctor of Humane Letters” honorary degree from the Academy of Art College in San Francisco (1999) and “Commendatore al Merito Della Repubblica Italiana” (1986). In 2014, she was appointed “Cavaliere del Lavoro” by President Giorgio Napolitano, a title previously given to Ottavio in 1993.
