It’s been in the pipeline for a while and we can finally unseal our lips, take off the gag and announce that British fashion designer Henry Holland is collaborating with Habitat to launch his first interiors collection. The limited edition designs will feature a series of artwork from the SS16 House of Holland season translated across both textiles and upholstery.
“I’m so excited to be working on my first interiors range with Habitat,” comments Henry. “I recently bought my first house and am really getting into soft furnishings these days, so luckily this project has come just at the right time! It’s been a lot of fun translating our SS16 collection for a different creative industry, taking our 1970’s psychedelic, hallucinatory prints from the catwalk and working with new materials and techniques specifically for the home. I can’t wait for you to see it.”
After his breakthrough 2006 collection stole the fashion limelight (who can forget his ‘fashion groupies’ slogan tees screaming “uhu Gareth Pugh” and “get your freak on Giles Deacon”?), Henry, and his House of Holland label, have gone from strength to strength. Now in the brand’s 13th season, House of Holland is firmly established in the international fashion arena and in January 2012 was awarded a two-season fashion forward sponsorship.
Henry designs with a London girl aesthetic in mind and is continually inspired by the variety of attitudes, cultures and mind-sets that exist throughout the UK capital. The House of Holland girl is cool, confident and savvy and wears labels without letting them wear her. House of Holland now boasts an impressive roster of international premium stockists including Browns focus, Colette, Harvey Nichols, Lane Crawford, Matches, Opening Ceremony, Emporium, Galeries Lafayette, Isetan, Net-a-Porter, Tsvetnoy, It and Selfridges.
Henry’s new interiors range will be available exclusively from Habitat London flagship stores and habitat.co.uk from May 2016.
