Clearly envisioned for the fun ladies in love with the retro tendencies resurfacing from the late 1960s and 1970s, House of Holland’s fall / winter 2013 collection is funky rather than classy, but extremely ladylike nonetheless. “Rave Nanna” is the endearing name that captures the essence of the line up according to Henry Holland, and in his choice of color, pattern, and texture we can clearly see how the garments belonging to the collection resemble something a modern girl would have borrowed from grandma’s closet.
Shift dresses build upon wallpaper prints in bright hues of pink, green and orange were among the main elements referencing the past, alongside chunky knits with psychedelic motifs and retro flavored accessories, highly represented by oversized cat-eye sunglasses and wide belts.
Where the prints and patterns took a step back, distressed denim numbers, metallic trench coats, sleek pencil skirts and heavy embellishments turned rather relevant, the latter mimicking everything from pills, flowers, to the brand’s own initials and glinting cigarettes. Quirky, far from boring and polished, the collection will translate greatly on the streets.
