If like me, you’ve just about recovered from Coachella-envy, you’d better get your skates on if you want to nab the best items to wear at festivals here in the UK this year. Coachella for men was all about fey Englishness, with Henry Holland and Nick Grimshaw leading the way, (as reported by Isabelle) in cool pastels and Euro-jetset colours. Topman have just about sold out of their Grimshaw-esque coral pink tailored shorts (I’m posting this entry whilst jogging to the store, elbows ready), though the green make a suitable alternative. And for a touch of Agyness Deyn’s faded-stars-and-stripes glory, try this super T-shirt by Der Sammler at OkiNi.

Celebs already make us jealous with their post-Christmas holidays in the Carribean, the Bold and the Beautiful have been out at Coachella, the first festival of the summer.
From David Hasslehoff to Jared Leto the US stars were out in full force, having a lovely time but we also had some Uk slebs representing, with Agyness Deyn and Henry Holland putting in an appearance.
Exciting news this afternoon as we’ve just received word of a Topman project called We ♡ the White Tee.
With a roster of designers which includes big names Henry Holland, Philip Lim, as well as Richard Chai, Juun J Topman are really keeping on their toes as far as getting new design talent in is concerned. They’ve also got LFW MAN designers JW Anderson and Christopher Shannon in on the act as well as the Topman Design team so we’re looking forward to seeing it when it hits stores on May 28th.

Grazia recently reported that Henry Holland has 662 friends on Facebook. However, upon closer inspection (and my quest to see if old Henners has uploaded his pic with our Catwalk Queen editor Gemma,) I found that there are two Henry Hollands on Facebook. And neither has 662 friends.
One of the Henries has 403 friends and the other has 582- how intriguing! Worst of all?- neither has Agyness Deyn as a Facebook mate. The Brandish team does love a fashion mystery!
From Catwalk Queen:
House of Holland is once again teaming up with Levi’s for a six-piece capsule collection, which has been inspired by Beverly Hills 90210.
Being a tribute to 90210 , does that mean we can expect a bit of stone-wash, mum-waist, rolled-up jean a la Dylan McKay style? Hmm… perhaps not.
Pieces will feature print and laser-cut jeans style, making use of floral and polka dot designs.
Just like his debut range for the denim brand, Holland will showcase his new collection at his forthcoming London Fashion Week show on September 17th. Only this time, they will go straight into Selfridges for sale the day after the show.
Talk about hot off the catwalk.
PPQ hosted a moving out party last night at their Conduit Street headquarters which was attended by Jaime Winstone, Ben Grimes and Peaches Geldof. Designers Amy Molyneaux and Percy Parker themed the event as a “trash the carpet” party which was bound to encourage some rambunctiousness. Henry Holland turned up with a new darker hairdo and sporting a pair of lowkey denim cutoffs. He livened the outfit up with a jacket in what’s become his trademark vivid purple. Across town Jefferson Hack was djing at the Dazed and Confused with a summery looking Alice Dellal.

Knife crime has reached an unbelievable height in Britain and with the murder of Ben Kinsella, the seventeenth teenager to die as a result of knife crime in London this year, Grazia has launched their ‘Lives for Knives’ campaign. As part of the campaign, the magazine has got Henry Holland, Katharine Hamnett and Sophia Kokosalaki on board to design t-shirts as well as laying a set of Five Government Demands.
On my WISHLIST is Henry Holland’s design, an electric-blue t-shirt with striking design and bold lettering. One size fits all and all proceeds go to the Ben Kinsella Foundation, a charity set up for the prevention of future knife-crime. I couldn’t think of a more worthy summer buy.
T-shirt, Exclusively at Matches, £36
Rumours abound that Henry Holland and Alexa Chung are going to present a T4 fashion show and the latest is that it will be called ‘Frock Me’… geddit?
Alexa Chung doesn’t have any formal fashion credentials but thanks to her quirky style she’s become a bit of a fashion icon for the indie crowd and topped the Guardian’s Summer Cool list. It’ll be interesting to see her pair up with Henners, hopefully they’ll hit it off and have us chuckling through our hangovers.
Can’t be any worse than watching 20-something barmen/models/whatever bicker on Shipwrecked that’s for sure.

The mood is light yet determined and spray-in-the-face cool. Imagine sea-side escapades (emphasis on the imagine) and sand between your toes as you loosely raise that striped knit from your oversized Jil Sander mesh-holdall.

Gemma and I hot-footed it over to Old Street on Friday for the opening of Mr Start, Start Boutique menswear tailoring store. Mr Start is offering a made-to-measure tailoring service as well as a host of other labels including Peckham Rye. The shop itself is pretty stylish, combining traditional wood cabinets with industrial shelving and neon lighting.

Lately, it’s been easier than ever to recreate catwalk looks from vintage stores. Designers from Gareth Pugh to Henry Holland admit to garnering inspiration from the pieces available in vintage so why shouldn’t you? You won’t find a cardigan like this one in any high street store. Which, if you’re tired of disposable clothing, is a great thing.
While cardigans are disturbingly ubiquitous these days -with everyone from indie geeks to lager louts wearing them – this is something that will stand out from the crowd. It wouldn’t look out of place in Etro’s A/W 2008 collection and it’s only £45 (Although that’s still a little steep for something someone died in).
From Dalí’s lobster phones and melting clock faces to Damien Hirst’s butterfly works- Surrealism is something that we can’t seem to get out of our systems. We buy into the singers who prance around in vintage band uniforms (Gwen) and the art but something we rarely show an interest in is surrealist fashion.
The reason? It’s just too embarrassing to pop down to Tesco’s with a pair of devil horns protruding from your well-styled scalp. Well not anymore. This post will allow you to test the look without looking visually-testing and trust me when I tell you that it is easier than you think. See after the jump for more information on where this look began and (wearable) items you can put on your shopping list to mimic it.
