Long before Instagram and meme accounts there was Henry Holland and his collection of hillarious tongue in cheek t-shirt designs. From “I’ll tell you who’s boss Kate Moss” to “Uhu Gareth Pugh” when they launced in 2006, they became instant sell-outs catapulting Henry into the spotlight.
Fast forward 11 years later and Holland is returning to his roots with the launch of ‘The T-shirt Shop,’ a 24 piece streetwear collection featuring eight collaborators from around the world.
Including t-shirts, hoodies and sweatshirts, the collaborators including the graphic artist Hey Reilly, the director Danielle Levitt and the artist Hattie Stewart have been dubbed ‘The Top 8,’ a nod to MySpace’s ‘Top Friends,’ and the social networking site where Holland sold his very first original tee.
Speaking about the launch, Holland says ‘Collaborating with other artists has always been a huge part of House of Holland and it felt like the right way to introduce our new streetwear capsule. Poets, illustrators, photographer, artists – there’s something for everyone – especially if you have a potty mouth!’
