AS part of its Fashion in Motion series, the V&A will host a retrospective runway show celebrating the 10-year anniversary of the House of Holland. Four catwalk shows will be staged in the Raphael Gallery this month which will showcase a carefully curated selection of pieces from across the brand’s decade-long history – pieces such as the infamous slogan t-shirts that first bought Henry Holland to the attention of the sartorial industry back in 2006, the tartan eyepatch that featured in his 2008 collection, his raving grandma inspired AW11 line, as well as looks from the designer’s more recent shows.
A temporary store, retailing special decennary editions of the label’s foundational slogan t-shirts will also be available on the day.
Vibrant, playful and bold, the House of Holland encapsulates the somewhat audacious character of the London girl and the brand – now in its thirteenth season – has successfully established its presence on the international scene, helping in turn to solidify the distinctly colourful, rebellious nature of British fashion and strengthen its place in the global market.
