Wave On – Style Bubble


>> The weather is flip-flopping about, undecided between spring and summer.  Enter the non-wooly looking, unexpected placement of Merino wool in spring summer collections, as exemplified by House of Holland’s wave-fuelled pieces.  Their presence is prompted in part by pirate radio waves, the rooted beginnings of Mike Skinner’s breakthrough album Original Pirate Material (which titled Holland’s SS18 collection) and  also by surfer’s waves as seen in the seaside slacker silhouettes.  The primary takeaway though is a wool Prince of Wales check that marks a collaboration with Woolmark that doesn’t actually look much like wool at all.  It’s been plasticised, accented by white patent and plastered with pin-up patches (designed by Elizabeth Ilsley) and gothic buzzwords proclaiming “Dreamy” or “Power”.  Paired with ultra thin peace sign cut-out knits, it’s a Woolmark collab that lightens the load off of the retail buzzword of “trans-seasonal dressing”.  ~~~Bring on the wave~~~
