House of Holland Unveils Gingham Patterns Galore for Spring/Summer 2017

If there is one word that would describe the new House of Holland spring/summer 2017 collection presented on London Fashion Week’s runway show today, it would have to be retro fun. Henry Holland’s presentation of the gingham awesomeness was to be commended, along with the whole gypsy allure that brought us into a more European approach to fashion that we can only show our appreciation for.

It is a whole decade that House of Holland marks this year and the collection is certainly priceless to behold, with 32 intriguing designs incorporating everything from boob tubes to kicky pants, spiced up sauciness that is a dish best served on the London runway. The market seems to be hipsters and those young at heart, with off-the-shoulder multi-tiered gingham mini dresses appearing on the set, along with high-necked designs that have waists cinched with the latest styles of belts, legs shown off to mid-calf where the laced up colorful boots make a rather anticipated comeback.

With most of the collection featuring a whole lot of décolletage, particularly through off-the-shoulder designs, we cannot help but think of a mix of the past few decades, expecting the Spice Girls to walk out onto the stage and belt out a new pop single.

General trends throughout the House of Holland spring 2017 collection include a whole lot of gingham, shades of red and blue, lovely gingham neckties, off-the-shoulder designs, belted waists, ruffle skirts, bell bottom pants, translucent designs, miniskirts, wraparound shoes, mid-calf boots, open midriffs, lots of patterns, and some asymmetrical necklines.

Towards the end, there are a few intriguing designs utilizing round appliques that give off a rather mermaid-like appeal to the whole of the dress, one incorporating in pants as well, another looking more like a mermaid toga, and the final piece of the collection reminiscent of a Spice Girls Barbie doll, complete with ruffled bell-bottom pants with a high waist and a short thick strapped crop top. We love the whimsical aspect to it all, the ditzy designs and the prairie girl inspirations.

The patchwork hoodie with zigzag floral panels along with the lace was pretty interesting, while the tracksuit appeared almost out of place with its wide arms, despite its gingham inlays. Ruffles, embroidery, floral and mesh seemed to dominate, while the added stiffness of leather through belts, wristbands, cuffs and collars was definitely something we liked seeing matched with the rest of the trending pieces.

It was a nice spring/summer collection to be sure, and seemed to match the spring season best, despite the presentation of skin here and there and everywhere. It will be a curious sight to see a whole lot of gingham back on the streets though! Definitely will not be complaining though. We look forward to some awesome House of Holland sales soon!
