It’s a bold, bright print interiors collection, created in collaboration with the London fashion designer. WGSN’s Vittoria Toffoli reports.
Interior decor is a funny one, there is a myth that you can’t get anything nice for your house unless you have the salary of a City banker. Happily, the new interiors and fashion collaboration by designer Henry Holland and Habitat is set to change that.
The capsule collection of key pieces, including cushions, a sofa, a rug and some throws, is totally printastic (this is not for shy and retiring types) and more importantly, affordable. The collection prices start at £35.00 and are available from habitat.co.uk/henry and houseofholland.co.uk.
Inspired by Hunter S Thompson’s iconic novel Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, the collection is a mix of trippy florals and animal prints, destined to add some sun into your living room. Our favourite piece is the hand carved rug featuring a blow-up, oversized palm leaf design that creates a 3D effect in a juicy, palette. And if you love fashion, you’ll notice that a lot of these same prints were spotted on Henry Holland’s SS16 runway.
Speaking about the collaboration Henry said:
“I’ve wanted to design an interiors collection for years and translating ideas for a new industry has been such a rewarding process, looking at new techniques and materials which we haven’t used before.”
This is not the first time we’ve seen the worlds of fashion and interiors collide. Earlier this year US based interiors brand Calico Wallpaper created a debut fashion line, inspired by its wallpaper collection. It’s a trend worth keeping an eye on and WGSN subscribers can explore the entire Lifestyle & Interiors section dedicated to the interrelation between these two worlds called Fashion Connection, where catwalks meet interiors by joining WGSN.
