House of Holland Goes Technicolor Flapper for Its 2016 Fall/Winter Collection
Henry Holland explores the sexual freedom and independence of “two of the greatest party decades.”
With London Fashion Week well underway, House of Holland took to Tate Britain to show its 2016 fall/winter collection, a vivacious program of technicolor pieces. Drawing inspiration from the silhouettes of 1920’s flappers and the retro glamor of 1970’s rock ‘n’ roll, the range is a dynamic fusion of decades. On why he decided to explore these two eras, designer Henry Holland told Vogue, “They are two of the greatest party decades, I think—the flapper girls and their attitude and the sexual freedom and the independence that they stood for, and the same with the groupies in the ’70s.” Along with kimono-inspired outerwear, wide-sleeved fur coats, and jellyfish graphics, Henry Holland brings his quirky vision alive through his garments.
