Pringle of Scotland @ ‘Princess Grace: More Than An Image’ Exhibition

Pringle of Scotland celebrates its heritage and the beauty of one of fashion’s most iconic muses and unveils The Archive Collection, ‘Princess Grace: More than an Image’ exhibition as well as the launch of a capsule collection that reflects Princess Grace’s personal style at the brand’s Landmark boutique in Hong Kong recently. The Archive Collection, ‘Princess Grace: More than an Image exhibition’ is an extension of a continuous collaboration between Pringle of Scotland and internationally renowned art and design fashion school The Central Saint Martins College. With help from The Nouveau Musee National de Monaco, Pringle of Scotland and The Central Saint Martins College developed a fashion course that delves into the history of Prince Grace of Monaco.
The museum lends access to palace archives, allowing greater insight into the fashionable world the most beloved modern-day princess. Research into the phenomenal fashion journey of Princess Grace began in April 2012, where The MA fashion design course students at London’s The Central Saint Martins College were given access to the Princess’ personal wardrobe and details of life. A year later, the collection and exhibition were unveiled in Paris with Her Royal Highness The Princess of Hanover and award winning British actress Tilda Swinton as the guests of honour at the monumental event. The archive collection then made its way around the world to paris and Tokyo before arriving to Pringle of Scotland’s Hong Kong.
The exhibition explores the life of Princess Grace of Monaco through her fascinating sense of style, with an emphasis on her love for knitwear, a timeless wardrobe staple that Pringle of Scotland is equally passionate about. Through studying elements of the Princess’ style from these exhibiting photos, Pringles of Scotland and The Central Saint Martins College students created a knitwear capsule collection that reflects Her Royal Highness’ unique and timeless sense of style.
Famed award-winning actress and fashion icon Tilda Swinton designed a dress in honour of Princess Grace as a part of the archive collection. Proceeds from the sale of the Princess Grace-inspired capsule collection will be donated to The Nouveau Musee National de Monaco for art projects and to The Foundation Princess Grace Monaco which supports hospitals and focuses on humanitarian aid for handicapped children.
