Intro to Henry Holland
I love Holland’s quirky designs and just like me, he studied Journalism at university. He was catapulted to fame five years ago due his fashion slogan tees, which had eccentric catchphrases such as “Get your freak on Giles Deacon”. Since then, House of Holland (he’s designer brand name) has grown more popular with the fashion crowd, with his designs available to buy in not only prestigious stores such as Selfridges and Harvey Nichols, but you can buy the British designer’s collection from international stockists including Barneys and Opening Ceremony.
Holland’s Autumn/Winter 2011 collection
For the Autumn/Winter 2011 season, House of Holland focused on bright colours and clothing detail such as pearl appliqued sleeves. His inspiration you ask? Bingo halls and country living – who would of thought bingo halls would be inspiring?
I love these outfits because of their eccentricity! Holland is certainly working the boyish trend as well as incorporating a subtle hint of fetish with the use of intricate pearls to create the look of a bodice on outfit number two. Outfit three is definitely the look I would wear, the jumper is quite tongue-in-cheek, and clashes really nicely with the dress.
