Meet the designer all the 'it' Brits love: Henry Holland
He talks 'Clueless,' tracksuits and dressing for yourself.
by Christina Perez
You may have read Danica's post about his pop-up fashion food truck or seen pictures of him posing with cool girls Poppy Delevingne and Rita Ora and thought, Who is this super-stylish guy?
He's Henry Holland, designer of House of Holland, and he's one British designer who should definitely be on your radar.
Quick background: The Manchester, England, native started his label back in 2008 after a few cheeky fashion T-shirts he created (which said things like "I'll tell you who's boss, Kate Moss") became crazy popular. Now his House of Holland line includes a full-scale ready-to-wear collection and is a favorite among the international Fashion Week set. Plus, Holland himself has earned quite an impressive social media following: 250,000 on Twitter and 72,000 on Instagram. Not too shabby, huh?
Here, the designer, blogger and dapper man about town shares some personal tidbits you may not already know:
My guilty pleasure is ... alcohol.
My style is ... schizophrenic.
I never leave home without ... my iPhone.
If I weren't a designer I'd ... be a writer.
