FLASH FASHION: Seeing Stars At Henry Holland
When you think about it, Henry Holland‘s approach to fashion is a little like the way Jeff Koons approaches art: make things that pay homage to mass production that are sometimes so bad or so kitschy, they’re actually really, really good.
That was the mentality behind the clothing the designer showed for his House of Holland runway show in London. From pleated metallic skirts to beaded stars on halter top dresses, the collection sounds bad on paper but looked amazing on the models. There was some clear 70s inspiration, what with fringe abounding and a tropical leaf print covering a lot of his models. Holland’s clothes were wearable and fun, a refreshing change from garments and designers that take what they do too seriously.
Holland’s good friend Agyness Deyn and singer Lily Allen were among the stars in the front row, and from what we can tell, they liked what they saw. We do, too — but let us know what you think about the collection in the comments.
