house of holland: f/w '12

The House of Holland girl has grown up a lot as of late; Henry Holland's last couple of collections have become more sophisticated and, dare we say it, elegant than his first shows featuring the logo tees for which he became so well-known.  Yes, she's grown up, but she's still got that inherent flare for stand-out fashion and isn't afraid of a graphic print or bright colour.  To put it simply: she's still heaps of fun.  Houndstooth also played a big role this season, but Holland turned the traditional English fabric into something more playful, creating ombred prints on his casual pieces and sequined cut-out paillettes on his version of a red carpet gown.  He also cleverly played with stripes - diagonal, horizontal, vertical - sculpting his pieces into ultra figure-flattering shapes.  The colour palette was also perhaps a bit more accessible this season; gone were the neon brights and, in their place, Holland introduced a deep, rich colour scheme (still utilising perhaps every single colour of the rainbow, however).  This was definitely Henry's strongest collection to date.
