GRANNY TAKES A TRIP
London: Downtown darling Henry Holland has been outfitting pretty young things from New York to London for several seasons now, but this season his inspiration lay in the closet of a kitschy, kooky granny rather than a clubgoing it-girl. High necklines and below-the-knee silhouettes signified a departure for the British designer, who has kept crop tops and bodycon dresses on the map for quite a while. As usual though with House of Holland, the reference is filtered through a playfully exuberant lens; instead of looking crotchety or formal, vividly-charged oranges and pinks and a memorable granny-square ensemble lent a general feeling of exuberance.
