I am beyond thrilled about this collaboration as Henry Holland is undoubtedly one of my favourite designers ever since I got my hands on a pair of his limited edition Alphabet tights in the UK last here (as seen here). I live for his use of contrasting black and white with vibrant colours and use of traditional British design elements like Houndstooth and Tartan. Even more so, it is amazing to realise how far the South African fashion scene has come that we are starting to see collaborations like these. Wow. I am feeling very proud right now.
For those of you not familiar with Henry Holland, his label House of Holland, is all about the 'London girl aesthetic' and is a label which is continually inspired by the variety of attitudes, cultures and mindsets that exist throughout London. The House of Holland girl is cool, confident and savvy and wears labels without letting them wear her.
If the thought of seeing this exciting range of denim and tees wasn't enough, I've been invited by Mr Price to attend the launch of this range and will get to meet Henry Holland in person. Woweee, I think I am still in shock even as I type this. So expect to hear lots of report backs from the launch (and equally as much fan girl hype).
Mr Price, you deserve a standing ovation for being the most cutting-edge and innovative South African retailer. Well done!
