House of Holland

Apparently, the Henry Holland girl has adopted a bit of an attitude this season: read stroppy, read an overload of Kurt Cobain on YouTube. Yes, she was nearly scowling. But Henry’s collection, entitled Buzz Kill, was full of vibrancy and smelt like pure teen spirit. Before a front row of Alexa, Jade, Leigh, Poppy, Pixie and the gang, Holland presented a collection bang on the money for the next festival season – in the VIP lounge, that is. Cue tie dye-print silk dungarees, embellished beanies, oversized plaid shirts and bias-cut long skirts, as well as cute denim bustier dresses and lace-hemmed slip dresses. Splodgy turquoise and pink biker jackets were perfect to throw on over them. More happy days: Fashion Forward, sponsored by eBay, is helping Holland have his first-ever pop-up shop right now. “I had to tell the girls to stop smiling,” said the quiffed Henry backstage. “I wanted attitude!” Success, he got it and his mum was terribly proud. “I made him well, didn’t I? He came in a Lego kit.” Insane good humour is in the Holland DNA.
