Spiga 2 is an innovative project headed by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. Now in its third year, the boutique in central Milan, Via Spiga specializes in distributing a pick of promising emerging designers.
Dolce&Gabbana want to support emerging talents by giving them visibility and retail space in an area they would fins difficult to penetrate at the start. This season we’ll focus on some of our favourites. This week: House of Holland.
Henry Holland’s first foray into fashion was almost by accident. After
graduating from The London College of Printing with a BA Journalism, Henry
Holland was catapulted into the fashion limelight in 2006 with his irreverent
‘Fashion Groupies’ slogan tees featuring catchphrases such as “UHU Gareth Pugh”
and “Get Your Freak On Giles Deacon”.
Henry designs with a London girl aesthetic in mind and is continually inspired by the variety of attitudes, cultures and mindsets that exist throughout the UK capital. The House of Holland girl is cool, confident and savvy and wears labels without letting them wear her.
