DAYS OF DISCO
London: Henry Holland is known as a rather theatrical designer, a favorite of club kids and those on the creative fringes of artistic industries. This season introduced his most wearable collection to date – flashy but tempered by flattering, current silhouettes and playful, but not cartoonish, details. Flared, pleated skirts were reminiscent of fellow Londoner Christopher Kane, but when juxtaposed with tropical graphic prints, their disco-era foil finishes looked fresh. Space-dyed knits were almost demure, shown layered over club-collar shirts, while flared trousers achieved a long, leggy proportion. Crop tops, belted blazers and suspenders rounded out the parade of on-trend pieces. Full-length shift dresses were less effective, as Holland’s hits this season were mostly short and flirtatious.
