If there’s one thing you can be sure of with House of Holland, it’s that anything they put their hand to will be bold, statement-led and fun. Expect all of this with the impending House of Holland x Habitat collaboration launching in May 2016.
The range is based very much on House of Holland’s SS16 ready-to-wear collection entitled Fear and Loafing. Henry was inspired by the 1998 cult celluloid spectacle, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and Hunter S. Thompson’s book on which the film was based.
Holland’s army of models ubiquitously stomped down the catwalk in patchwork utility jackets cinched with graphic animal print waist ties. Paired with humbug striped tops and layered over ankle skimming pyjama pants printed with a riot of brightly coloured botanical imagery, the look was topped off with jewel-encrusted bugs crawling up their lapels.
“A lot of the botanical prints were inspired by the 70’s casinos and hotel suites within the film…the whole film has an almost psychedelic pink hue.”
Colour confidence is something that House of Holland promote with wild abandon. Scarlet, tangerine, magenta and cobalt are the colours of Henry’s rainbow, tempered against the more neutral bases of khaki green, Oxford blue and blush pink.
“I love how wearing colour makes you feel different; it can make you feel mischievous and happy and you have to be carrying a certain attitude underneath if you’re wearing a lot of colour. Colour plays a massive part in injecting a sense of fun.”
Get ready to live in Henry’s world. And bring your shades!
