Vintage Bridal & Cocktail: Cashmere Sweaters from Pringles
Cashmere and Pringle sweaters are a great combination that is getting harder to find. The weight and texture has made them a favorite knit and it's become impossible to pass up a vintage cashmere while cruising a good estate sale.
One delightful fashion trend is wearing embellished cardigan sweaters over bridal gowns and cocktail dresses for parties, wedding receptions and chilly dinner venues. With this in mind, I post this in the spring, for any bride or wedding guest looking for a unique cover up this season.
Pringles have a great video from an exhibit on the famous sweater: "From Hawick to Hollywood: the Women who wore Pringle". This looks at mid-century Pringle knits and Hawick, Scotland where Pringle is made. Wallace Shaw, who designed for Pringle between 1972 and 1978 shares his impressions about Pringle during that time.
The gorgeous sweaters shown here are all from the video that you can find HERE.
Don't these luxurious beaded cashmere cardis make you want seek out one of Pringles embellished sweaters? I know I do!
