London Fashion Week is taking off and Henry Holland is turning up the colour factor with his FW12 collection of clashing, tonally graded, pop-a-licious houndstooth separates and dresses. House of Holland started as a kitsch run of tongue in cheek tees, and Holland has retained the fun, irreverent personality of his early gimmicky gear whilst managing to also show that as a designer, he’s now a bit more grown up.
Holland’s houndstooth is not entirely original – remember Nicholas Ghersquiere’s flirtation with the iconic print for Balienciaga RTW SS11? – but card carrying hipsters all over take his say-so pretty seriously. So, slice it or dice it whichever way you want, looks like colour pop houndstooth is the G.O for this coming chilly season.
