Olympics: Nicola Roberts takes Gold for party dress

We all know that the sports luxe trend has legs for the whole summer season and we salute Nicola Roberts for getting into the Olympic spirit by teaming her glam maxi with Henry Holland x Superga pumps for the Warner Music Group’s pre London 2012 Games bash at The Tate Modern.

One to copy!

For more pics of the attendees (we heart Leah Weller’s daring minimalist look and Poppy Delevingne’s colour blocking) check out the full article.

Beyond excited about Rihanna’s Styled To Rock show

Celebs who love round glasses: inspiration gallery

It’s the trend that just keeps on going. Circular-shaped sunglasses have been around since 2009 with everyone from edgy Lady Gaga and Mary-Kate Olsen to glossy celeb stylist Rachel Zoe rocking a pair. Fearne Cotton and Alexa Chung have made the look typically London-refuse-to-try-hard. Nice job girls.

Will you be partaking in some round sunglasses fun?

Alexa goes bold for fashion week fun

Fearne looks effortlessly cool

Cheap and cheerful ASOS colourblock sunnies £12 (and they tick the pastel trend box - clever ASOS)

Kristen plays the grunge card

LFW day two: make-up vs crayons

Today London was celebrating the arrival of Moschino Cheap & Chic and the collection screamed 1960s, liquorice allsorts and make-up.

Carrying on SS12’s prominent trend of sugary pastel cuteness, pointy kitten heels, pretty lace and candy colours all featured heavily, as well as bright pink knits with crochet collars, bold buttons teamed with sixties style cigarette trous.

And the best bit? The amazing prints featuring lips, make-up and bows. Just soooo cute. Our biggest criticism: fur, which apparently is real. Eew. Just say no.

Make-up prints with bright lace - is this really for winter?!

The eyes have it

I LOVE this 1960s style coat with cute pointy shoes

Henry Holland also stuck with bright pastels but the shot of primary red (dubbed Crayola red by some) which featured surprisingly heavily in the House of Holland collection, stopped it being too saccharine.

I loved the bright zig-zags in the silk dresses but the 1970s flared leggings with blazers left me cold. The punchy Hounds tooth was very Holland but it was all a little too disco for me. I prefer Holland in his statement tshirt era.

The highlight of the show?

The houndstooth look

Slinky fringing

There’s something about fringing that is so glamorous Art Deco roaring twenties-style. We loved Georgia May Jagger’s Julien MacDonald number and Blake Lively’s risqué Marchesa frock. Fringing looks particularly glam in silver and Lanvin, Marchesa and Salvatore Ferragamo

But fringing can also be mussed up for a rock-and-roll sixties vibe and looks great with jeans, flat boots and preferably a leather jacket a la Balmain. We’re starting to see plenty of fringed t-shirts and kimono tops popping up all over the high street. Enjoy!

Fringing feast!

In love with this House of Holland dress with fringe strap - £194 from £485 in the ASOS sale = bargain!

This limited edition pink tie dye prink fringed kimono from River island is an easy way to dabble in fringing £40

Ultimate fringe bodycon dress by Dress Up Topshop - £75

Sooooo rock & roll - ASOS metallic knitted jacket with fringe details - £13.50 in the sale

Henry Holland for Little Mix

We’ve been watching X Factor now-and-again over the past few weeks and are always glued to Twitter … so we couldn’t help noticing that designer Henry Holland is a big Little Mix fan, so much so that he has made personalised House of Holland tights for the band.

Henry tweeted ‘Life Made’ after meeting the band last week and the tights appeared soon afterwards! Check them out.

Check out those tights!

And more!

InStyle Henry Holland cover taps into Augmented Reality trend

Yesterday we received our copy of the InStyle UK December issue with a very beautiful cover by Paul Smith. The only problem is that the special edition covers are only available to subscribers and we really wanted the Henry Holland one, which comes with a very cool augmented reality twist – because we’re tech crazy.

Lucky subscribers with the Henry Holland cover can download the Aurasma Lite app (for iPhone and Android) to make the cover come alive. The tech company was behind Debenhams’ augmented reality app too.

InStyle promises a ‘super-stylish surprise’ and we reckon it might be a film clip for the ‘Film InStyle’ project – all the films will go online after 23rd November. Then again as the cover contains massive leopard print (a little like Henry’s print design on the dress Pixie Geldof is wearing) it’s possible it might be a leopard-print-based animation.

Let us know if you have the cover and have tried it!

We’re so pleased that augmented reality apps are gaining a wider audience in the fashion industry…now bring on visual search!

Henry Holland look-a-like crochet jumper

Sometimes a high street item just screams designer look-a-like! This crochet-style jumper from ASOS reminds us so much of Henry Holland’s Autumnal heritage and crafty collection. Buy buy buy!

Clever ASOS! Crcochet jumper £50

The real mc coy!

House of Holland for Superga designs revealed

Happy Birthday Superga!

The Italian plimsoll company is looking good for 100 years of age and the company celebrated in style with a party with London’s bright young things, including Alexa Chung, Pixie Geldof and Henry Holland.

As well as celebs, Superga revealed two House of Holland-designed plimsolls, which I personally love, but so far we haven’t seen any pricing details.

House of Holland per Superga - Belissimo!

While the brand enjoyed a Renaissance suring the 1990s, it is cool again with Alexa Chung as the face of the brand and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen as creative directors.

Tricky tights: Giles Deacon + House of Holland

We love wearing shorts and tights in the Autumn- a perfect transitional trick to get extra millage out of stuff you already have in your wardrobe (although this year there are some amazing alternatives to tried-and-tested denim shorts.)

The good news is that statement tights are also having a moment and look fantastic with simple shorts or on-trend plain pencil skirts. Giles Deacon’s patterned tights caught our eye in New Look, with one pair reminding us of Cheryl Cole’s bondage-style tights that she wore on X-Factor at around this time last year. Here are some of our favourites…

High fashion for £10 at New Look - Thanks Giles!

Henry Holland has had a celeb tights following for a while now (remember all those suspender look-a-like numbers?) but we like Henry’s quirkier styles.

Agnes Deyn is a big HH fan!
