Henry Holland: Pack lots of tops

Fashion designer Henry Holland has revealed his top tips for holiday packing.
The 27-year-old has launched a gorgeous collection of skiwear and après-skiwear for sports label Roxy Heart.
Henry thinks when packing for a vacation, be it a skiing break or a sunny escapade, holiday goers should always make sure they keep items within the same colour scheme as it makes mixing and matching easier. He also suggested taking more tops than slacks, as people tend to notice the upper body far more.
“Make sure everything matches everything else. I go away sometimes for a long period of time. If everything’s in the same colour palette you can make loads of different outfits with the same six things,” he told Grazia.
“Way more tops than bottoms - no one remembers your bottoms.”
Henry enjoyed snowboarding as a youngster, so was thrilled to get involved with the winter sports range. He says unfortunately nowadays he’s not so hot on the slopes though as he’s rather out of practice.
“I used to be an experienced boarder when I was growing up. I grew up right next to a dry ski slope so I used to go there like three or four times a week. It used to keep me off the streets,” he laughed.
He describes himself as a “born-again newb” now though, referring to a snowboarding term which describes a newcomer to the sport.
