JUST in time for Christmas, Pringle, the Scottish knitwear company, is opening its first London store today at 93 New Bond Street. As well as the traditional Pringle sweater in 101 colours, the store will carry Pringle's deliciously decadent cashmere dressing gowns, at pounds 748. Those unable even to dream about snuggling up in a dressing gown costing more than a head-to- toe outfit may be tempted by traditional - and now highly fashionable - twinsets in finest new wool at pounds 140 for both a cardigan and the sweater to go underneath it.
