House of Holland SS12 Bra and lurex knit here in the South China Morning Post this week.
Us Brits know how well showing a bit of skin sells quality tabloids so
it's nice to see the Chinese taking a leaf out of our book....or paper?
Who knew the Chinese news could be so much fun!!
Also, We've been going through some recent press and developed a fun game, 'Hunt the Holland'
You have to find all the House of Holland pieces on the page. It's fun, look......
This one's pretty easy. Spectrum Magazine
We'd say that these two were more intermediate......
These ones for the more advanced.
Did you find everything? If not, study hard. They'll be more 'Hunt the Holland' next week.
House of Holland hooks up with Superga,
with Henry plastering his cheeky prints all over the footwear and
encouraging the Torino brand to unleash the flatform, a creeper-type
thick sole, to a broader audience. A rolling collaboration set to run
for seasons, Dazed Digital caught up with the teen girl-about-town's
favourite during the line's tiki-bar themed launch, complete with an
abundance of alcohol soaked pineapples. Talk of leopard print, flatforms
and 50s furniture ensued.
Dazed Digital: This is an
ongoing collaboration, we've just previewed A/W12, but tell us about the
S/S 12 shoes that we can buy now... Henry Holland:
There's a pastel colour palette, a bit of leopard and key prints we've
done past and present. I just wanted it to be very obvious. We've done
great show shoes with Charlotte Olympia, Nicholas Kirkwood and of course
Atalanta Weller, though we do them ourselves now – and never actually
put them into production. Everyone needs a pair of trainers, don't they?
DD: The flatform style is getting a lot of attention... Henry Holland:
Yeah, the flatform, everyone’s going on about the flatform. It’s like a
creeper sole isn’t it? It has a fashion edge and that’s our customer.
Superga is a really great brand with great technical knowledge,
manufacturing and distribution, so this project really makes sense for
DD: Tell us – the House of Holland, if it was a physical house, what would be in it? Henry Holland: Oh God, a lot of mess. All I’ve got in my head is a picture of the studio, and there’s just piles and piles of stuff everywhere.
DD: So nothing like [90s TV show] Fun House? Henry Holland:
Actually, yeah, in a sense! We’ve got old sets from fashion films and
shop installations in there, like these random vases. We’ve got a
polystyrene Hollywood sign that Gary Card made for us to go in
Selfridges, as well as a polystyrene Big Ben. It’s got a clock on it,
but we’ve tied it on with string really shabbily. There's a Statue of
Liberty too. My mum keeps buying loads of old 50s furniture for me but I
don’t have a house big enough so I’m like ‘where the fuck am I
supposed to put this?’ There’s lots of things around and the archives
that you collect every season. We produce three sample collections now,
one for Hong Kong, one for Australia and one for London/Europe. So I'm
going to have to start giving some clothes away, aren’t I?
DD: Who'll get them? Henry Holland: The girls we like: the ones that get photographed!
