Previously, Carr led Balenciaga’s design team under Nicolas Ghesquière. He has also held design roles with Marni, Cacharal and Chloé, and worked with legendary corsetiere Mr Pearl during his Central Saint Martins degree.
"We are thrilled to have Alistair on board," Jean Fang, Pringle's chief executive, said in a statement published in WWD. "His passion for both cutting-edge and contemporary luxury design is the perfect alliance for Pringle of Scotland, and we look forward to continuing our success as an international luxury brand with an emphasis in knitwear."
A tattoo aficionado, Carr has said that he hopes to cover most of his body in ink, because nothing in his life is permanent but his tattoos.... although, come to think of it, a good heirloom-quality cashmere twinset does come close. We look forward to seeing his first collection this September.
