How Times Change

You probably all know the quintessential Pringle sweater. You know, the argyle pattern in a range of colours to suit the in-colours of the season. Here are two great videos about the company.

The first is from the British Pathe archive and dates from 1950. I think that you have to view it actually on the site, so here is the link.


The second video is by the artist, David Shrigley and I must admit that he's a favourite of mine. He was recently commissioned to produce this humourous short animation for the fashion label Pringle of Scotland, to mark their return to Milan Fashion Week this year. It is all about how jumpers and cardigans have been made over their 195 year history, and is just brilliant. Do enjoy.
