MOTHER’S LITTLE HELPER
London: Over the past few seasons Henry Holland has proved he’s evolved far beyond those slogan tees that made his name, and this collection was another step up the ladder. With its Miu Miu-ish cropped, printed suits and housewife dresses in psychedelic wallpaper prints (in a preview the designer alluded to a granny-on-acid as inspiration), the collection was a 70s buffet. Also on the menu: Glossy leather trench coats, a gorgeous Mongolian fur-trimmed cape and tunics, tops and dresses exuberantly bejeweled with swans, daisies, cigarettes, strawberries and martini glasses. Not forgetting his roots, Holland included one slogan sweater emblazoned with the phrase Viva La Yibe! But it’s his Penny Lane parkas and groovy separates the girls will be clamoring for this Fall. — Natalie Shukur
