House of Holland London Fashion Week - autumn/winter 2010 www.houseofholland.co.uk

Henry Holland rarely strays far from 80's inspiration and yet the designer's collections retain that fresh attitude required to reel in the A-List - singer Little Boots, Pixie Geldof, and Alexa Chung were all keeping the bench warm in the front row.

The collection itself lent firmly toward a sportswear style with cheerleader-esque models in side-pony's parading down the catwalk in lilac striped minis.

Cut out dresses in black nodded to the nineties, while touches of shearling and sheepskin took the collection's inspiration back to the seventies. There was leather, there was gold, we saw bandanas of paisely print (wrapped round heads, wrists and earrings) and platform ankle boots.

The House of Holland's autumn/winter 2010 collection is so wearable that you were encouraged to simply pre-order pieces from a Henry Holland Blackberry App directly from your seat at the show. Genius.

Not ground-breaking in the style stakes but a well-thought out and refreshingly wearable collection nonetheless.
