More Harris Tweed at London Fashion Week.
“Henry’s show” is how House of Holland is referred to. It’s quite unique in never being called by its rightful name, and is in no small part down to the flamboyant character of its designer and a fondness for its overall fun rather than for specifics. Not any more.
Of course there was still a lot of fun to be had – Bingo Halls and Country Living being inspiration – plus lots of the requisite bright colour. But Henry further pushed his label in to “take me seriously” territory with beautiful tailoring in sexed-up Harris Tweed.
The tweed was reworked on herringbone wool bustier dresses embellished withpearls and in a near-trompe l’oeil denim shade. There were fuchsia herringbone skirt suits, too, with vinyl detailing on lapels and pockets, and psychedelic orange, pink and purple-checked coats over tights printed with bingo balls.
It was the perfect whimsical-with-a-hint-of-retro collection for Holland’s cool kid and socialite clubgoer clientele.
