There was a lot of pre-show excitement at House of Holland, this season. Street style photographers were swarming all over the Brewer Street car park location (fun fashion fact: Henry Holland always shows his collections in car parks); the soundtrack to Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet was playing on full-blast as guests took their sets; and then, just as the show was about to begin, Harry Styles arrived. So Henry had caused a Twitter frenzy before the Spring/Summer 2014 collection even hit the runway! Clever guy…
This season inspiration came from Mexico City and the tattoo parlours of Venice Beach. Romeo + Juliet was also a key reference point, which pleased me, as it’s one of my favourite movies. The Spring/Summer 2014 House of Holland collection has a strong ’90s vibe, as you would expect, and the lace-trimmed slips and tattoo-motif shirt dresses were the standout designs.
Earlier in the year Hailee Steinfeld wore a House of Holland dress on the red carpet, and I’m interested to see if she if any other Young Hollywood stars start to favour the brand. Selena Gomez would look lovely in one of the figure-hugging slip dresses, don’t you think?
