House of Holland Fall/Winter 2015-2016 Collection – London Fashion Week

It’s really interesting to see how fashion differs from one capital to another, and while in New York we mostly saw Sixties and Seventies silhouettes and elegant and glamorous looks, London Fashion Week seems to be more concentrated on youthful, bright and statement-making designs. The House of Holland fall/winter 2015-2016 collection launched yesterday evening is one vivid example of the statement, coming packed with urban-chic clothing pieces featuring lots of eye-feasting patterns and colors. “Tough uptown women; trustafarian street urchins,” read the show notes, perfectly describing the idea behind Henry Holland’s new fall line-up. The whole atmosphere on the runway was fun, funky and bold and we absolutely loved the creative mishmash of colors, patterns and clothing combinations.

Although Holland made his brand famous with his youthful slogan T-shirts, his fall collection brings a more mature and a tougher style, which is still young and fresh as we always expect it from House of Holland. We saw lots of innovation in terms of the fabric choices and the usage of prints and style combinations. Overall, it was a perfect fall casual line, filled with autumn-ready colors including lots of burgundies, reds, blacks, navy blues and purples, as well as shaggy furs and jacquards. Statement-making chevrons, checkered patterns and stripes injected a touch of edginess into the designs, and if we weren’t treated to prints than it was color blocking or and imaginative mishmash of textures and fabrics.

The outerwear was particularly strong and diverse, as we saw both the season’s hottest trend of Mongolian fur coats and elongated vests featuring bold splashes of colors put in oversized stripes, as well as perfectly tailored checkered coats often trimmed with fur for a more luxurious feel. Fur was also used for big clutches, waistcoats, fluffy scarves and a sleeveless cropped sweater that looked so warm and outstanding, especially when worn over a simple black shirt and a pair of red patterned culottes matched with thick black tights and heavy lacquered black Chelsea booties.

Jacquards in blue and green or purple and pink were used for a number of shift dresses and casual culottes, and we also saw boldly striped and ruffled and checkered dresses galore, always matched with black tights and the same Chelsea boots. Surely, there were pants as well, which mostly featured wide legs and a distinctive pajama inspiration. The second-skin leather pants were quite provocative matched with an equally eye-catching red and white checkered shirt and being a perfect look for party nights.

Like the clothing pieces and the outerwear options, the accessories available in the House of Holland fall/winter 2015-2016 collection were designed to attract lots of attention and evoke a rebellious attitude towards the looks. In addition to the statement-making Chelsea boots, we saw backpacks, fluffy fur clutches, bandeau belts, sunglasses and small kerchiefs tied around the necks that acted as perfect finishing details for the outfits unveiled. The models’ hair was kept relaxed and messy, while the makeup put the focus on the bold smokey eyes that ideally matched the overall mood on the runway.
