News & Runway


House of Holland’s Spring 2009 collection, titled Sex, Lies, & Volleyball, was chock-full of many of the trends we’ve been seeing emerge in shows these past weeks – mixing of bold prints, floral prints, sheer fabrics, cinched waists, boyfriend blazers, and touch of 80’s flare. 

Overall though, with the exception of a bustier dress with a voluminous floral bottom worn by Agyness Deyn that made for a nice silhouette, the season’s House of Holland collection, despite consisting mostly of t-shirts and jeans (done in collaboration with Levi’s), felt more costume-like than anything one might actually wear.

I’m a big fan of Henry Holland’s catchy-slogan t-shirts (“Do Me Daily Christopher Bailey”), I just don’t know if Holland’s aesthetic can transfer into a cohesive, wearable (and if not wearable at least innovatively not so), runway collection.
