Henry Holland always puts on a good show at London Fashion Week. The entire experience is fun, from the moment you receive your collectable invite in the post right down to the models’ finale walk. In the past I’ve usually enjoyed the spectacle more than the actual fashion; but last season’s collection seriously impressed me, and the House of Holland AW13 show was another step towards a more grown-up direction. This was easily Henry’s strongest collection to date – and I’m sure we’ll spot girls up and down the country wearing these House of Holland designs come September.
The Autumn/Winter 2013 collection – titled “Nana Rave” – opened with bright, graphic prints which reminded me of a lava lamp. Although the pattern was OTT, Henry kept the silhouettes simple (think prim shift dresses and tailored blazers), so everything remained wearable. My favourite looks came towards the end of the show, however, where playful crystal embellishments and jewel tones stormed the runway. Here I’ve selected eight of the hottest designs from the show, all of which are worthy investments for the coming season. Take a look and let me know your favourites…
I’m expecting to see the number of House of Holland stockists double over the next couple of months, as the waiting lists for those neon-trim parkas are sure to be endless. Make sure you get in line quick!
