Crochet for Holland and Kane

Crochet for Holland and Kane

House of Holland, AW11, London.

The use of crochet in both the recent House of Holland and the collection by Christopher Kane makes a perfect example of just how differently two designers can use one reference.

For Henry Holland it was very much a case of bright colours, and abstracting the pattern onto silk, which pushed the traditional crochet squares towards a kaleidoscope effect. In contrast, Christopher Kane toughened the crochet up by muting the colours and etching it onto leather or possibly a vinyl of some sort.
