Pringle of Scotland appoint ex-Balenciaga designer as Design Director

It looks like that the Galliano curse has transformed the industry. Following the designer's meltdown a number of rumours started making the rounds within the fashion industry including Hedi Slimane moving into YSL and Stefano Pilati being fired, Riccardo Tisci replacing Galliano at Dior, Hannah McGibbon out from Chloe and Haider Ackermann moving up the ranks into Givenchy.

Even though LVMH announced that the Galliano replacement won't be revealed until next fall, Pringle of Scotland the Scottish heritage brand have just announced their new design director who is none other that Balenciaga and Nicholas Ghesquiere's right hand man, designer Alistair Carr.

Carr who had previously worked for Mugler, Marni and Chloe is a very innovative and edgy designer and he is known for his love of tattoos & mastering corsetry having interned under Mr. Pearl in the past.

It looks like Pringle's changing artistic direction and maybe aesthetic.Can't wait 'till next season to see what they come up with!
