It’s here, it’s sheer, and it’s very far from austere….. The return of the House of Holland for Pretty Polly hosiery collection.
The bunting is up, the silly string is ready and there are party hats galore as that time has finally arrived… The House of Holland Autumn/Winter hosiery collection has arrived!!!
First shown at London Fashion Week earlier this year, on the catwalk and at the launch party we were delighted to attend, House of Holland’s A/W clothing range has already become a celebrity favorite. Said to have been created with ‘the New York girl going downtown’ in mind, the collection has a distinct 90’s feel – the stench of Nenah Cherry, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Kurt Cobain oozes from the fabric. A theme which has definately rubbed-off onto their distinctive new hosiery line.
Eagerly awaited since the success of the last two collections for Pretty Polly, Henry Holland’s new hosiery range has not disappointed. Gorgeous bandana-style vintage paisley has inspired many of his designs such as the much desired Bandana Tight. Chic, and guaranteed to be spied on the legs of many of the fashion elite (they have already been spotted on Agyness Deyn and Sophie Ellis-Bextor), the Bandana Tight is set to be a key item in the coming season.
This season is also predicted to see the rise of the knee-high sock, and the talented Mr Holland has unleashed some absolute stunners on the fashion world. Both the ‘Ball and Chain’ and the ‘Triple Chain’, were seen on the much idolised Ms Pixie Geldoff at Glastonbury this year. With their chunky-chain design in metallic, gold coloured thread, and with Henry’s trademark typographical elements, these are definitely hot socks.
Other stars of the collection include the fantastic Bandaknee Tights. We think they epitomise the ‘street culture’ look of the collection with their monochrome colours and lace knee patches – how many more trends could you want from one pair of tights!?
And last but not least…….. how could we sign off without mentioning this seasons twist on the iconic, coveted and all round adored ‘MOCK STOCKINGS’!……..
Yes, last season’s Super Suspender tights where a phenomenal hit with fans such as Agyness Deyn, Little Boots, Frankie Sandford and Princess Eugenie(!). This season they’re even sexier, our choice would be the Chain Suspender tights with super-glam metallic detailing to add some cheeky fun to any night out.
So girls, for a pocket friendly way to get some designer action into your life, look no further than this amazing autumn/winter collection. Every day should be a Henry Holland day!Read More
Psst … Wanna know what the fash pack will be wearing this up and coming season? Of course you do! Some of you eagle-eyed hosiery addicts may already have spotted the new season designs on the models at the House of Holland autumn/winter 2010 show earlier this year, and on numerous of Henry’s friends at this years Glastonbury, so you’ll be thrilled to know they’re going to be part of Henry’s affordable collaboration with Pretty Polly. We were also lucky enough to mingle with Henry and his best friend Agyness Deyn at the London Fashion Week preview of the collection!
There’s lots to love in the new season lineup, and fans of Henry’s signature mock suspenders are in for a real treat as there are two hot new styles for autumn. First up, the Chain Suspender Tights, featuring a plain opaque leg to mid-thigh where it becomes sheer with chain-print suspenders! For the seriously attention-grabbing option, you’ll want the Bandana Suspender Tights – as seen on Daisy Lowe at Glastonbury! Sheer all over with a zig-zag suspender, the legs are printed with an exclusive Bandana design which will definitely make a statement for autumn.
If suspender tights aren’t really your thing, though, you’re in luck as the Bandana range comes in several different styles. As well as the mock suspenders, you can get the print on the all-over Bandana Tights, Bandana Over-The-Knee (tights with a mock OTK look) – as seen on Kelly Osbourne at Glastonbury – and our favourites, Bandaknee Tights, which have a sheer leg and a diamond-shaped bandana print on the knee. The Bandana range has already found itself a couple of A-list fans in Agyness Deyn (pictured) and popstar/model/style icon Sophie Ellis Bextor, who have both been spotted in the Bandana Tights.
Also getting in early on the autumn Henry Holland for Pretty Polly collection was Pixie Geldof, who we spotted at Glastonbury wearing two different pairs of the new season socks – the triple chain socks and the ball and chain socks. We also love the Elastocks: a plain black leg is finished at the top with an elastic band emblazoned with the House of Holland logo, so no-one will be in any doubt who designed your legwear! There are three different styles to choose from: a knee-high, an over-the-knee and a suspender version. We bet Pixie’s got all three, and we know you’ll want them all too!
Given the popularity of Henry’s previous designs for Pretty Polly, we predict a sell-out! Some of the designs are available to order now and make sure you check back soon to snap up the rest!Read More

Here at MyTights, we’re all feeling a little disappointed by the lack of sunny weather that spring is supposed to bring, which is why we’ve turned our attention to something that will guarantee to put the spring back in your step! His name is Henry Holland and he is one of the best things that have happened to Fashion this year!
With a renowned reputation for being edgy and quirky with his designs, it was a shock to learn of the British designer’s recent collaboration with the laid-back classic American cool of Levis Strauss jeans. But the partnership has proved a refreshing one; the range consists of eight unique denim styles, as well as black and flesh coloured striped T-shirts. Henry’s influence on the collection is palpable, as most pieces are accented with golden buckles and contrasting black denim straps with an exclusive purple House of Holland patch to complete all designs. If this wasn’t cool enough, Indie poster girl and NY club scene alum Leigh Lezark will be the face of the latest ad campaign.
Not only is the designer liaising with the top dogs over seas, but he has also launched his new collection H! By Henry Holland at Debenhams. Gal pal and muse to the designer Pixie Geldof is the face of the new collection and she’s featured in all of the campaigns.
If you’re fashion savvy and want a piece of the action, I suggest you turn to MyTights where in only a matter of days the pioneering designs of Henry Holland’s Spring/Summer collection will be available! Tights which carry Henry’s famous prints will be bursting onto MyTights’ screens, so be sure to have your mouse at the ready before they sell out like the last collection!
And as if the new collection wasn’t enough, the sell-out Super Suspender Tights will be back too! An endless list of celebs, such as Frankie from the Saturdays, Agyness Deyn, Pixie Geldof, Alexa Chung and Miquita Oliva have all been pictured wearing Henry Holland’s super suspender tights, an item that has become as much iconic of the designer as bumsters were of the late Alexander Mcqueen!Read More
Obviously, we’ve been raving about all kinds of hosiery and funky fashion tights for years, but we’ve loved 2009 as the entire world of fashion has joined in.
The celebs really got on board with statement tights after they were all over the catwalks back in the spring and now it’s winter, they are making even more of a splash on everyone’s legs than the rest of their outfits!
The Mirror’s Celebs magazine spotted a whole host of famous faces rocking patterned tights this month, with Henry Holland for Pretty Polly a popular choice for Agyness Deyn, Una from The Saturdays, Fearne Cotton and, erm, Cheryl from Hollyoaks.
However, there were so many other styles and designs that it proved really anything goes – Juliette Lewis wore red tights with glittery circles, Taylor Swift sported herringbone-patterned lovelies and Sadie Frost went for white lace to create a classy, Jackie O-style look.
There you go – proof that you should definitely experiment with patterned tights if you’ve never tried them! They’re fun, bang on-trend and they might even keep your pins warm as you head from party to party this Christmas.
Although we may be more used to seeing her in more of a punk guise, Agyness Deyn has gone back to the ’80s to film an advert in New York.
The Manchester-born model was a vision in bright pink, with pink t-shirt, shorts, jacket and sandals – as well as those super-cute pink socks – as she ran down some steps with Gabriel Aubrey, aka Mr Halle Berry.
It was a refreshing look for Aggy, whose platinum blonde hair has also grown out of its short crop into a girly bob with a side fringe.
While you may not want to dress in it from head to toe, a splash of pink in your wardrobe this summer could be the perfect way to welcome in the sunny (we hope!) weather.
For pale pink socks, Bebaroque’s Dorothy-style socks from Mytights.com – which have a pretty bow print – would look preppy and sweet, while Pamela Mann’s over the knee socks in cerise make more of a bold statement.
As the recession continues, many people are re-embracing a desire to dress more individually in order to make a statement.
This is according to Laura Terry of Female First, who points out that this was a trend also seen during the last economic downturn of the 1990s – and the result was rave.
Neon leggings, leg warmers, t-shirts and glow sticks were the height of fashion as young people gave a two-fingered salute to stuffy society.
“It was a youth culture who liked to let loose and be free, experimenting with whatever took their fancy,” Laura pointed out.
Although Britpop came along to take over from the rave culture, Female First reckons it’s back after Henry Holland and Agyness Deyn again championed the look in a Nu-Rave revival.
Brightly-coloured leggings are now popping up all over the high street, so perhaps it’s time to turn back the clock and brighten up the mood for the summer!
Fashion designer Anastasia Zheleznova is also embracing the ’90s in her new ranges, telling Russia Today that the same sense of uncertainty has influenced her styles.
After a brief flirtation with emo, punk is back at the forefront of the fashion agenda thanks to some of the hottest young stars from Britain and the North America.
Jamie Winstone, Avril Lavigne and Agyness Deyn have all been spotted wearing fishnets, patterned tights or leggings with nouveau-stlye Doc Marten boots, that staple requirement of mock anarchists everywhere.
According to Liz Hoggard, fashion reporter for the Evening Standard, punk is well and truly back, with sales of Doc Martens up by five per cent even with the credit crunch biting.
Jamie chose black opaque tights with turquoise boots and a jumper dress, Avril opted for day-glo yellow boots and black leggings, while Agyness chose scarlet Doc Martens and red leggings with a snakeskin pattern to embrace the revival.
“It’s not all wining and dining now – people want to look as if they can be taken seriously,” Liz Hoggard pointed out.
If you’re on the lookout for some punk-style patterned tights, Celeste Stein’s designs could be perfect – try the Playing Card tights or the Tattoo Parlour ones for a look to rival Agyness et al.
