OMG – Tomorrow is London Fashion Week! Princess Julia gives us a London Fashion week preview from some of her most loved designers.
As fashion week is fast approaching we sent the fabulous, Princess Julia, down to some of her favourite designer’s studios to get an insight into their S/S 2014 collections. Today Julia heads over to see Henry Holland to preview his SS14 House of Holland collection.
Last season Henry Holland gave us ‘Rave’ and wasn’t it a trip! Dancing on the carpets in bonkers print and applique of cocktail glasses and cigarettes. The House of Holland lady has an adventurous spirit, she’s a bit of a rebel and likes to turn heads where ever she goes. This season Henry chooses a Chola heroine for his fictional muse. ‘A mexican street girl from a good home’.
Full of attitude, she’s ‘fiery, sexy, bold, fearless and playful’, she clashes current fashion with timeless style and yes she’ll be turning more heads when she sashays into a room.
Henry is obsessed with pop culture, something to do with his days as fashion editor at Smash Hits he tells me, but his inspirations come from all over the place. From Romeo and Juliet film director Baz Luhrmann to his archive of 70’s Playboy mags. ‘Look at the hair’ he exclaims. Henry is continually inspired. The House of Holland never tires and Henry counts his ranges for eyewear, tights, ranges of jewelry, accessories and New Era baseball caps.
