The look ‘Old-lady pastimes’ was the theme at play, as Henry Holland retained his edge via wearable prints and injected a new traditionality with sexed-up heritage tweeds and sharp-cut tailoring.

Key pieces Tailored tweed sb jackets had an equestrian edge as Holland gave British-made tweeds a naughty twist with wipe-clean, patent collars. Lady of the manor knits encrusted with oversized pearls recalled country living, and high-waisted tweed trousers conjured up 1970s nostalgia. Budgerigar and bingo-ball prints depicted old-lady pastimes. The standout piece was a crochet quilt-print skater dress with negligee straps in high sparkle glitter.

Commercial appeal Holland had a lot to live up to after his spring 11 collection. Instead of ‘crazy old lady’, the designer pulled off an organised, yet fun, collection with sophisticated design details.
