Holland Street is London’s designer brand of silk loungewear and beachwear. The luxury printed kaftans, robes and kimonos are handmade in Britain and use a minimal waste manufacturing method that was developed when founder and designer Lauren Barfoot studied textiles at the Royal College of Art. She launched an exclusive range for Fenwick of Bond Street at London Fashion Week in 2014 and since then the prints and products have been seen in publications such as the Financial Times ‘HTSI Gift Guide’, Elle Decoration and many more.
