House of Maffia loves House of Holland SS11

It has been a couple weeks since LFW has finished but we here at House of Maffia enjoy looking back at the designers who have made a fashion print on our memories.

One of those is House of Holland by Henry Holland whose creations are loved by Agyness Dyne and Pixie Geldof. His stay in Miami and cocktail parties inspired his collection. Loud and colourful prints, crop tops and belted waist was a reoccurring theme throughout the collection.

Designed by Henry Holland and styled by Sam Ranger, the collaboration of the two are forces not to be messed with as this was fantastic summer styling especially the combinations of pleated skirts.

Boxing Kitten…

Another British summer of gale force winds and appalling showers of rain. Luckily for some like Beyonce, are able to travel to sunny St Tropez and still impress fashionistas with her style.

Beyonce has been spotted in Italy and France wearing fabulous outfits on the beach and also dining with husband Jay Z. She created an outfit of mix prints; leopard print, iKat by Dries van Noten and shorts by the very trendy brand Boxing Kitten.

Boxing Kitten uses African inspired fabric to create their collection and has become very popular amongst the celeb circle with Solange and Fergie adding it to their own wardrobe.

Was this a mix print no-no or a stylish success?
