Ultimo and House of Holland unite for London Fashion Week


Ultimo made its London Fashion Week debut on the catwalk at House of Hollands’s latest runway show at the Topshop Show Space on Saturday 20th February 2016. The two iconic brands partnered to present the best of British design by pairing beautifully crafted garments for a seamless lingerie styling look. Henry Holland hand selected Ultimo lingerie as the perfect companion to his collection after noticing a synergy between the new Ultimo bralettes and his forecasted trends for AW16. Henry revealed, “Pairing my AW16 collection with Ultimo was a considered move, as I felt their lingerie would have a supportive presence on my runway.”


The House of Holland collection was entitled “Backstage Flappers” and celebrates the greatest party decades of the 20th century – the 1920’s and the 1970’s. Designed with tough, sexy individuals in mind, the collection featured statement shearling, fringed hemlines, and leopard velvet suiting. Sheer blouses and luxurious furs were expertly styled with Ultimo’s latest lace bra innovation. The new Ultimo Pixie bralette is simultaneously delicate and bold. Crafted from black, floral lace, the Pixie bralette pairs a deep, daring plunge with a supportive band for a fashion forward look. Introduced to the world for the first time alongside the new House of Holland collection, the Taylor bralette was featured on the runway with a glamorous tiger print coat, printed drop waist slip dress, and sheer polka dot party dress.

Back to the 90s, we went as Prada left its hometown to present its second cruise collection on the seventh floor of the Herzog & de Meuron designed Prada HQ in New York. The star-studded event which saw the likes of Selena Gomez, Dakota Fanning, Marc Jacobs, Uma Thurman and Chloë Sevigny, was also live streamed in Times Square. Floating transparent panels hung in the minimalistic space, some in red to recreate an augmented sunset while mirroring the frenetic energy of New York.

Karl Lagerfeld is no stranger to an extravagant backdrop. Having previously held fashion shows with replicas of the Eiffel Tower, a life-size dollhouse and an airline, it seems only logical that Chanel would preview their Cruise 2019 show… on an actual cruise? You may have noticed the words ‘La Pausa’ on the side of the 330-foot-long ship. Named after a villa in the south of France built by Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel in the 30s, the stunning backdrop majestically sat tall at the Grand Palais in Paris, a month after it was announced that Chanel would be pledging $40 million for restoration.
