The Perfect 10 Capsule Range Brings Convenience to London City Airport’s Travellers
April, 2012, Pringle of Scotland partner with Sophia Neophitou-Apostolou- Stylist and Editor In Chief of 10 Magazine, to create a capsule collection of 10 pieces that form the ‘perfect 10’ travel collection.
The Collection is now available at London City Airport, providing frequent flyers the chance to purchase these luxury essentials before they board. Neil McLeod, Non-Aviation Sales Director for City Airport comments: “We are delighted to welcome Pringle of Scotland’s exclusive travel collection to City Airport. Renowned for its quality and luxurious designs the addition of the Pringle travel range will further complement the airport’s premium brand offer.”
The inspiration for the ‘Perfect 10’ came as Neophitou-Apostolou – who travels the globe continuously - realised the potential for a modern, functional, lightweight wardrobe she had spent years searching for. The idea was born to create a comfortable luxurious range comprised of styles made from cashmere and soft merino wool, all of which are perfect to wear whilst travelling or upon arrival.
The travel collection includes cashmere sweaters, merino leggings, wide leg track suit pants, Kimono and Cardigan, as well as an oversized cashmere scarf. All pieces are designed to offer elegance, comfort, convenience and luxury.
Available at Aelia Tax & Duty Free, London City Airport.
Pringle of Scotland is the iconic brand founded in 1815 at the birthplace of the Scottish knitwear industry. From the beginning technical innovation has led to the creation of knitwear as outerwear, the signature argyle pattern and the classic twinset.
