LFW: House Of Holland Autumn/Winter 2013

House Of Holland AW13 cover LFW: House Of Holland Autumn/Winter 2013

Henry Holland, designer for House of Holland, put together a truly amazing runway for his Autumn/Winter 2013 runway collection for London Fashion Week. Inspired by looks from the ‘80 and ’90s, the “Nana Rave” collection managed to fuse youthful street looks with prim and ladylike silhouettes, as best typified by the ’70s wallpaper-inspired piece above featuring the eye-popping combo of a purple bejeweled top layered with a fuzzy purple jacket.

Asked why this season everything seemed to come together for the designer, Holland commented:

We just really concentrated on one theme; every outfit was about that one idea. We just really got it. I felt totally confident with it.

FP new romantics4

Whimsical and feminine in a shade of pink that I never would think of wearing until now (I’m expanding my color horizon as we speak) this dreamy wonder available at Free People caught my eye as a contender for a great  dress. Versatile for day or night, the silhouette easily lends itself to a wide range of accessories.From a rugged belt and boots to tights and sparkly sandals, the possibilities are endless. View more angles on the flip.

Free People Limited Edition Dresses

highsnobette-free people limited edition ballet dreams dress

Almost lost in the afterglow of Versace and H&M was the launch of Free People’s special edition dresses. Our  favorite part of this initiative is the fact that each designer was allowed  to talk about their design, something that rarely happens when the said design is part of major publically traded company. 

While we appreciate the concept,  a step further to full blown love would have been the acknowledgement of the uber-talented seamstresses and pattern makers that must have contributed to making these gowns happen.  And there is definitely  a lot of South Asian detailing going on. The bells on the dress above fab!  On the next page the video intro of the dresses, all available here.

FreePeopleJune (10)

This might actually be Free People’s July lookbook, but no matter the brand is majorly doubled down in hippy themes days so between June and July we’re talking  about minor variations on a feather-everything theme. Which, did you see that New York Times article covering how all the demand for feathers this year is screwing up supply for fly fishermen??

Free People’s January catalog is now available, with a photography theme that seems to take some inspiration from fashion bloggers. Urban Outfitters, which owns FP, has talked about shifting fashion winds in its investor calls but these images don’t speak to any noticeable new directions….though maybe that’s the idea, keep change subtle and difficult to spot so as not to cause any uproar.

Free People Tattered Socks: Too Far?

 Free People Tattered Socks: Too Far?

Whenever a new trend heats up, there’s always a point where you see it being taken to a level where you can’t help but think, was that really necessary?? Case in point these Free People tattered socks (which will set you back 18 bucks). Don’t get me wrong, I love what FP is doing these days as purveyors of affordable fashion, and you know that they knew this item would be controversial. So while I appreciate their moxy on the one hand, on the other, I feel like, okay, you just killed it; the distressed trend is now officially in decline. And now what’s next? Tattered panties?? Featuring a studded waist??? (Though now that I think about it….that’d be kinda cool, at least in a conceptual kind of way!)

As we were  looking at the opaque/ sheer legwear  trend on the Spring 2010 runway Free People steps out with The Puzzle Piece Pants, that I of course can totally be into. The Cashmere & wool composition  kind of explain the close to $400 price tag , added to the “Made in the USA” label. Showing   that the brand is well aware of the  high end fashion potential of this piece…A closer look on the next page.
