take me to the House of Holland...

while walking to the tube in camden last night i happened to pass by the illustrious Henry Holland. 'wait, was that just...' i muttered before turning around and running back. 'are you... could i....?' he very kindly obliged while looking to his friend and saying he was a bit embarrassed. normally he's spotted with a host of london's most fashionable and elite young-things dripped over his arm - no doubt, likely to be wearing one of his creations. but, no matter - i was pretty pleased i noticed him looking all paired down in a denim jacket, black hoodie, and brightly coloured rucksack. i have predominately known him for the provocative slogan t-shirts that shot him to fame back in 2007 and more recently for his line of quirky but quite covetable tights. after having a peek at his most recent autumn 2010 line though it's pretty clear he's got a lot more up his sleeve than just that. the reworked bandana print that was splattered all over a host of his creations is a fresh and funky take on the more traditional paisley print. i could seriously do with some of that in my life along with the bold stripes. mixed prints? yes please - especially when they look as good as these.
