London Fashion Week SS20 – House of Holland

“If I can’t dance, I don’t want to be part of your revolution” Emma Goldman, anarchist and feminist.
Inspired by the 1970s Disco movement, and rave culture of the 1990s, House of Holland’s Spring Summer 2020 speaks to the pleasure seekers, the heavy hitters, and the dance floor fillers.
The collection is an archetypal night time wardrobe of look-at-me dresses, and don’t-touch-me tailoring.
Bright neon lime, pastel pink and cobalt blue organza shirts are layered over form-fitting active wear, creating an attention seeking look. Sharp tailoring is updated in a purple silk moiré, with black satin tuxedo lapels.
Denim remains a key element in the collection, re-worked into blonde, stone-wash outerwear with paracord weave detail. Metallic rainbow lurex, chenille guipure lace, glazed leather, and textured snake skin effect jacquard create a bold textual story, whilst nodding to the golden era of disco.
Mid-height architectural sandals have been created in partnership with South Korean label Yuul Yie, while bags have been hand-woven using the brand’s signature paracord detailing.
