Clare Waight Keller, who has been Pringle of Scotland’s creative director since 2005, announced that she has resigned from her position today. “To a certain extent, this move is for personal reasons,” she said. “It’s a sad moment — but the perfect time to close my era at Pringle. I leave incredibly proud of Pringle’s growth from a Scottish knitwear company to an international luxury brand.” She didn’t elaborate on her reasons for leaving, nor did she name any upcoming projects. She is also pregnant with her third child, due in May. Prior to her job at Pringle, she was a senior womenswear designer at Gucci, under Tom Ford.
