Alex Kart has your in-depth look at the House of Holland Spring/Summer 2013 collection during London Fashion Week.
Theme: The Nineties. Moody, angsty, grungy teenager.

The Look: Mad for Metallic — Henry Holland is all about injecting the fun into fashion, with colorful and playful creations, and his S/S 2013 “Buzz Kill” collection was no exception. Models took to the London Fashion Week catwalk on an irreverent print parade, blowing up the grunge eras signature check and thrift-shop florals with an added touch of elegance.

The collection opened with a large, diamond print trouser suit ensemble, which quickly rolled to peplumed crop tops, bright dip-dye dungarees, printed jersey maxi’s, and high-waisted shorts — appearing in an explosion of colors. Each of the looks were clashed with shiny boots in jeweled tones of purple, emerald green, sapphire blue, and gold. Check out the statement buckles and open-back heels on the boots (a look to watch out for!)

Meanwhile low slung waistlines and loose jumpsuits were adorned with delicate lace trimmings and back panels, sparkling brocades were complemented by jewel encrusted beanies and embellished shoulder bags. But it would have been the brightly constructed dresses in splashes of acid yellow, that topped-off the understated glamor of the Holland ladies.

Hair & Makeup: Sultry, bronze-smokey eyes. Tousled platinum hair, parted in the middle, romantically pinned on either side.

The Music: Bassy soundtrack

Front Row: Kelly Osbourne, Alexa Chung, Pixie Geldoff, Laura Whitmore (TV presenter), Poppy Delevigne (model), Lauren Laverne (DJ).

Where to Wear: House of Holland defines all things glam, urban, and street making it the perfect choice for a downtown gallery opening!
