We caught up with fashion designer of the moment, Henry Holland, to chat about his hot new collection for trainer label Superga – and trust us, you’ll want a pair of these badboys, not least because Fearne Cotton and Kristen Stewart are fans!
Bursting with polka dots and leopard prints, Henry says his inspiration for the line came from House Of Holland: “It was the first commercial footwear range, so I wanted it to represent the brand. I used key designs from previous seasons so that people would recognise it.
“The trainers are so versatile. I’ve seen a girl wearing a mint polka dot pair with lavender silk. There’s lots of pastels in the collection which is such a big trend right now that you can easily mix up, I’m also really into tropical print, and print on print, it’s so happy and I love that everyone’s wearing it.”
We asked who his biggest celebrity muses are, and yes, they’re his best friends! “For an inspirational level I need to know what someone’s like, it’s not just their looks, I need to know their personality too. Alexa (Chung), Pixie (Geldof) and Aggy (Deyn) are so original and into fashion, and their style reflects their personality.”
We’re not sure whether we want the pretty lilac polka dot pumps or the tangerine leopard print, but how should we wear them? “With a pale blue jean and a crisp white shirt”.
Thanks Henry! HG
