HENRY’S TOP KNITWEAR TIPS

Burton Mail - - Style & Beauty -

DE­SIGNER Henry Hol­land, right, has col­lab­o­rated with Deben­hams for a decade now pro­duc­ing af­ford­able wom­enswear col­lec­tions, in ad­di­tion to the high-end of­fer­ings of his epony­mous la­bel.

As his new Knit Hap­pens range lands at the de­part­ment store, the 35-year-old re­veals his ul­ti­mate knitwear rules...

1

THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU’RE WEAR­ING UN­DER­NEATH

THERE’S noth­ing worse than be­ing too hot and not be­ing able to take your jumper off be­cause what you’ve got un­der­neath has got spaghetti stains down it.

So I would say layer it, and make sure that you’re pre­pared to get a bit hot.

STYLE A JUMPER WITH A SKIRT

WE did three pleated midi skirts

[in the Knit

Hap­pens col­lec­tion] that were cre­ated to pair with the knitwear so I would def­i­nitely style it with one of those.

I just think it gives a re­ally nice sil­hou­ette that’s re­ally easy and age­less and it’s a re­ally easy out­fit to put to­gether – and it’s a bit dif­fer­ent to a pair of jeans and a jumper. H! by Henry Hol­land pur­ple metal­lic pleated midi skirt £40

BIG­GER IS BET­TER

THE jumpers in the col­lec­tion are quite over­sized, that’s partly why we paired them with some­thing like the midi skirts be­cause it’s that long, loose sil­hou­ette that’s in every­one’s col­lec­tions at the mo­ment.

Ev­ery­thing feels more louche and a bit less up­tight. I think every­one’s feel­ing the pres­sure with lots of things [in the world] and would rather just dress a bit more like ‘leave me alone’.

TAKE IN­SPI­RA­TION FROM HOL­LAND’S FA­MOUS FRIENDS

ALEXA [Chung] al­ways has amaz­ing knitwear, out of my friends she is a big fan of knitwear, she’s got some amaz­ing knits in her col­lec­tion as well. I DO wear a lot of knitwear, al­though it does tend to get stuck in my beard.

It’s quite an­noy­ing some­times, you can spend all day at work and then you get home and you’ve got a hair­ball at the bot­tom of your chin or a bit stick­ing on your lip that you can’t seem to get rid of! Alexa Chung
