>> Blondies Anna Maria Jagodzinska and Toni Garrn may top out on the most-campaigns-for-Spring-2009 list, but it's a brunette who's using her It Brit appeal to score a few campaigns of her own. Daisy Lowe's ad currency has increased this season from Agent Provocateur and Doc Martens to include a pose in romper for DKNY Jeans, a roll in the bedsheets for Marc by Marc Jacobs — Marc thinks she's "adorable" — and a portrait in black and white for Pringle of Scotland. Maybe if she's lucky she'll catch Christopher Bailey's eye for next season — mainline Burberry is a coveted British model-only campaign, after all.

Pringle 1815, borne from its parent line, Pringle Of Scotland, was launched in 2007 and is beginning to make its mark on the contemporary scene. With a comprehensive Fall order from Net-a-Porter and enough ruching and fringe to make it a heavy hitter in the trend department--we can't see what's not to like. We love the light-as-air tones and the silk tiered dress as it reminds us of a paired down version of that memorable Burberry number.
A stylish girl needs very few things in life, a little black dress, a nice pair of pumps and of course a high quality long lasting Italian handbag for toting around all of life's little necessities for those trips to the powder room. We have gathered together 50 bags of various shapes, sizes and materials from Versace Fendi, Pucci, Gucci, La Perla, Pringle of Scotland, Bottega Veneta, Prada, Etro, Moschino, Burberry and Frankie Morello to aid in that process. Enjoy!
Rachel graced Barneys with her petite presence yesterday in LA. I wonder what she bagged? The actress dressed how I would for a serious shopping excursion — fashionably at ease. On top, she wore a loose floral blouse, and kept the rest of her look streamlined via faded skinny jeans, Chloe platforms, and a Pringle of Scotland slouch tote. Retro green Chanel shades add quirk and reveal that she doesn't take herself too seriously.
Fans of Sigerson Morrison got good news yesterday when it was revealed that Pringle of Scotland had collaborated with the Nolita shoe house for Spring 2009. While plenty of sketches made their way around the internet we thought it might be nice to give everyone a closer look at the line which we can safely predict will be quite the hit. We already want a pair in cream.
