Perhaps it’s his background in journalism, but London-based fashion designer Henry Holland sure knows how to play on words. His snappy t-shirt slogans have become his signature, from ‘Cum Again Christopher Kane’ to ‘Do Me In The Park Marc’. Our personal favourite, however, is ‘Get Yer Freak On Giles Deacon’ – we don’t know why, but we just love it. And printed in the boldest colours imaginable, it’s not hard to see why Holland’s 80s-inspired t-shirts have become must-haves for fashionistas looking to make bold, garish statements. And let’s face it, we all like a little attention. We sat down with the dashing young designer to talk shop
