The House of Holland Spring 2012 presentation was a lot of fun.
Henry Holland has quite a following, and I’m not referring to the celebrities as I spotted at least 8 women of all ages wearing the designers’ signature patchwork print Fall 2011 pieces in the audience.
This Spring collection was dominated by prints; plaid, cow and python on a pastel colour palette of mint, lilac, apricot and French navy.
We saw shirts with different colour cuffs and collars, python bra’s, mesh vests, pleated plaid skirts, jumpsuits, drop-waist dresses with pleated skirts, asymmetrical dresses, metallic mesh dresses and python pants with zipper accents which had Jamie Winston saying, “f***ing hell, they’re awesome.”
Some of these pieces were paired with metallic chunky knits, because we’re not always guaranteed a summer here in blighty.
Key accessories included python belts with a gold padlock; Nicholas Kirkwood for House of Holland python print heels, Kim West latex bras and pants. Katie Hillier created the bags and the jewlery and House of Holland for Pretty Polly provided the fish-net tights and socks.
Front Row: Eliza Doolittle, Nicola Roberts (didn’t get the orange memo), Jamie Winston and Pixie Geldof.
