The inspiration for House of Holland's Pre-Fall 2014 collection is clear: cheeky English private school girls. Henry takes his label back to his English roots this season, with a collection that features English school staples, revamped with a fun and sexy twist. Uniform-like skirts are shrunken to micro-mini lengths and cardigans and knitwear are updated in fun colours to create a more modern approach to this style of dressing. For his prints this season, Henry also collaborated with illustrator Hattie Stewart who was inspired by the movie poster for cult-favourite film, True Romance. But our favourite print this season was the repeated school badge print in multicoloured lurex, which was featured on a pant suit, a skirt and a dress--definitely our must-haves of the season!
