House of Holland’s catwalk show of their SS17 collection was one of the highlights of the LFW taking place on Saturday, 17th September, at the Topshop Show Space in Old Spitalfields Market.

Designer Henry Holland celebrated the brand’s 10th anniversary with a collection inspired by the late eighties and early nineties rave culture. Born in Manchester, he grew up during the huge cultural movement that centred on The Hacienda at the time. He’s used many graphics inspired by old flyers, hand-embroidery pieces taken from stock imagery of those days to hand-craft pieces yet with fun reference points at the same time.

House of Holland SS17 collection is full of a new range of Holland’s signature T-shirts, the ones that shot the brand to fame back in 2006, with slogans like ‘I’m yours for a tenner Kendall Jenner’, ‘Let’s breed Bella Hadid’ and ‘Give us a toss Karlie Kloss’.2q-24

Somewhere Over the Reignbow: LGBT Rights Protected in Queen’s Speech

With all the recent sombre news, coupled with the feeling that communities in cities are experiencing particular oppression, it is indeed heartening to hear the following words in the Queen’s speech: “My government will make further progress to tackle the gender pay gap and discrimination against people on the basis of their race, faith, gender, …

Oh to be at Camino Bankside Now that Summer is Here

With temperatures set to soar as though it was 1976 (SEEN remembers sweltering through that), your best bet is to get anywhere by the river Thames, where the views are gobsmacking, and the food is fabulous. Like last year, London is awash with marvellous gins – and let’s remind ourselves, if you drink gin you are partaking in a resonant and historical pastime that is inextricably linked to London’s rich, vibrant and – dare we say it – dark past.

Kieren Hughes: Urban Dreamscape

SEEN was instantly captivated by the work of the Cheltenham-born artist Kieren Hughes recently. His unsettling images seem born of modern-day anxieties about urban living, as in Chicago Fever Dream or the privileges accrued by a rich elite, as in The Last Privilege of an Oil Man.
