Holland Street has named Ikko Tanaka, a highly respected Japanese graphic designer, as the inspiration for its Autumn/Winter 2015 collection of kimonos and robes.
Paper cut out florals of roses, geraniums and peonies are arranged on a large format canvas; positioned and engineered into the garment shape, and then coloured using digital technology before being transferred to chiffons and georgettes to make the final pieces.
Prices range from £325 to £415.
The AW15 lines are the second collection for Holland Street, which launched at London Fashion Week in September last year by RCA textile designer Lauren Barfoot. Final pieces are made in Britain using the finest silks.
The brand is already sold in Fenwick of Bond Street, Petits Bisous, Kings Road, Laboratory277, Fulham Road and online after being shortlisted as a finalist in the New Designer of the Year category at last year’s UK Lingerie Awards.
“Being intimate is a human need that produces feel-good hormones and helps people to function better in their daily lives,” says Barfoot. “Holland Street is offering the modern woman garments to connect with, and the reassurance that a soft and sensual silk garment can help associate the wearer to a calm mood and generate the desire to focus on relaxation and intimacy,” she adds.
