I felt indifferent about pretty much everything, except for that plum colored dress with the hot pink trim at the bottom. That one’s cute (minus the shirt).
Me too. The middle of it is like “Picnic Blanket Extravaganza.”
I feel like there’s a whole lot of 70s going on here, but Reem Acra did glam better, and Ralph Lauren did mod better.
It’s wear your pj’s, nighties, and vagina roses to work day at House of Holland clearly
meh, I got bored halfway through
I’m totally with you. Meh.
The blue-checked cropped pant set might be fun on the right star. Not loving the religious motif prints.
I’m really down for this collection. Despite (or maybe because of?) the fact that most of looks like the kind of stuff I love picking up in vintage shops.
Most of this is pretty cute. Some not so much but I really like all of the super short dresses for once (except the deep blue one in the middle which is hiddy).
Now we know what the Dutch wear to Walmart Dü.
Best collection in my eyes from today’s postings. Not perfect, but a whole lot of very pretty.
I was falling asleep until the blue plaid outfit showed up. I’m awake now! Jeez, my eyes.
Love the shirtwaist in #10 (shirtwaists look good on just about anybody). A few others are cute, but most no more than so-so.
I like the short coat dress, fourth down, on a very lovely model, but I’m not feeling most of the rest. The religious stuff is just plain tacky and the boxy denim/chambray with what looks like crocheted lace, eighth down, is painful.
calling Marina and the Diamonds…
I’ve long dismissed HoH as some kind of daft novelty line, but there are tons of appealing pieces in this collection. I’m loving the slip dresses, the bustier dress and the overall colors and feel. What happened? did a big investor come in and demand some cash-flow, pronto?
Love the first look. Don’t really like the heart detail on a few of the first pieces.
Most of this I’m not a huge fan of, but I really dig the gold jacket and the multi-scale check print. Not necessarily everything they MADE with said print, but the pattern itself is the reason I clicked on this article. Gimme the orange-red checked shirt and the gold jacket and I’ll happily waltz off in jeans and boots.
There is some weird shit going on around the crotchal area in some of these dresses.
It seems a little all over the place to me. I like the colors, anyway.
And I want the body to be able to say, “yes, I went out in my metallic lilac crocodile capris today.”
Mostly waaaaaaay to girly, femme, whatever you want to call it, for me, and much of it kinda generic, but I know the women who will love this and fill their wardrobes with it. This is going to be a harbinger of knockoffs to come.
I can even see that hideous washed denim(?) top & capris trimmed with teal lace being worn as an ironic nod to the ’80s, a haircut with bangs and curls, held back with a kerchief tied as a headband.
Is this a PR decoy collection?! That said, I could totally see Rihanna in the Virgin Mary shirt
I feel like this is Dolce & Gabbana’s lazy, bubble gum-snapping younger sister. Not impressed.
None if it’s really hitting the right notes. Too much shiny and busy, the colors are a bit garish, it all comes off looking cheap. At the prices they’re charging, that’s unacceptable. The religious imagery and general latino influence is poorly integrated. Not a fan.
I like the pants, but most of the variety to the collection is done with fabric, not style.
Oh dear. Rashida Jones is going to buy the whole line and then spend all spring getting slated by the Uncles and the Fuggirls.
It looks like 70s style but they tried to make it edgy and modern because of the religious icon prints. Yawn! I am not offended by the use religion images on clothes by designers but the Mary and Sacred Heart images have been overused at this point. If the designer was going for the shock value all it induced for me is overdone. The whole mess is very fug.
I think this is the look Burberry “wanted” and didn’t achieve.
I can’t decide whether the hot pink mixed-gingham top with the turquoise mixed-gingham skirt is fun, or makes my eyes twitch.
Lana del Rey must be big in the House of Holland.
DISCLAIMER: I really like this collection. However, it kinda looks like they raided the leftover costumes from Baz’s “Romeo + Juliet”. Also, look #5, the slightly too long pencil skirt with high slit/sacred heart motif is screaming Sarah Michelle Gellar as Buffy tVS Season 3.
Too ironic for me.
S’ok. There are some really pretty pieces here, but none of it seems terribly original.
