House of Holland AW2011
If Tom Ford had a mischievous, British son I’m sure it would be Henry Holland! Limitlessly talented and iconic, designer Henry Holland seems to never put a foot wrong. Whether its his mass following of readers on Vogue.com, packed out clubs to hear him DJ, or his rows of adoring fans cueing round the block to see his next collection, Henry Holland is like the cool kid in school that everyone wants to hang out with and be around!
House of Holland’s Autumn/Winter ’11 collection is full of lust worthy items, and soon to be trends that accentuate Henry’s natural creative ability but also the quality of his work and his stylishly considered use of playfulness. It seems our little Henry is all grown up and perhaps ready to receive the recognition he deserves for his skill and design not just his popularity.
Bingo themed prints and patchwork crochet were styled out in true HOH form with girly pearl detail and hand drawn budgerigar designs floating down the catwalk. Peaking out were previews of his new collection of famous slogan tees, sure to be an instant sell-out.

Buyers and stylists were eagerly watching and taking down notes, and if they jump on board with what feels like everyone else in London already has, House of Holland is sure to have a very good year. xx
