Henry Holland's Habitat collection
Henry Holland took inspiration from drug-infused movie Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas for his interiors collection with European store Habitat.
The fashion designer is known for his quirky and colourful collections, designing for both men and women. Now he’s also creating items for the house, with one of Johnny Depp’s classic films serving as his muse.
“The collection is based on my Spring/ Summer 2016 line, which was inspired by Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. The Tropical Leaf cushion relates to a scene shot with a rose-tinted lens, giving a hazy pink tinge,” he explained to Britain’s Stylist magazine. “I’ve combined textures – velvet print, the embroidered bug and a pink leaf made with taffeta, which is a noisy fabric. If you’ve got this cushion in your house, people are going to know about it.
“The Buggin cushion also references Fear and Loathing, when the main character experiences psychedelic hallucinations and people turn into bugs. The insects were designed by Susan Pitt, a cult ‘70s artist – so she was the perfect fit.”
Henry has also created a sofa, which marks the first time Habitat has used digital prints on its upholstery. A Paradise Leaf rug, a stripped Catfish throw and the Pufferfish cushion complete the collection, with prices ranging from £35 to £1,300.
“All the cushions are reversible to encourage people to play with print and color - they’re two cushions in one. Clashing prints and patterns are amazing, but when I try to wear them I look like I got dressed in the dark,” the designer laughed. “You don’t know what works until you try it. Reversible cushions let you play until you find the right look.”
