British designer Henry Holland stayed true to form last night, having fun with fashion and showing us that he is not afraid of colour, as an explosion of electric blue, avocado green, rich purple and fuchsia descended upon the 70s granny carpet – a huge giveaway to the House of Holland collection’s ode to the decade.
The clashing of the acid rainbow and psychedelic wallpaper prints still managed to somehow give way to an overall feminine feel with shifts and A-lines, while pencil skirts and dresses were given an edge with quilted parka-inspired jackets.
It wasn't long before cocktail hour made an appearance – jewelled martini glass embellishments and embroideries on box-bright tailoring gave the outfits a loud regal effect – one of Holland’s signature looks.
As is the case with other LFW designers so far including Jasper Conran and PPQ, it is clear that next season certainly won’t be a dull one. Overdosed on nostalgia, Nana Rave – the fitting title of the collection – is one party that shouldn't be missed this AW13.
