As out priorities shift, harlan + holden creates an impactful collection centered around the feeling of utmost ease
For Seoul-based brand harlan + holden, a piece of clothing is more than just something that you wear each day. In fact, the brand is in the business of saving people’s time. Every piece from harlan + holden is designed to be worn beyond trends and its timeless offerings are made with the client’s routine and daily calendars in mind.
harlan + holden’s latest collection is no different. Born amid the pandemic, the aptly named harlan + holden 01 is the first collection under by Alessandra Facchinetti for the brand. Facchinetti – former creative director and designer for Gucci, Valentino and Miu Miu, and now the first creative director of harlan + holden – was highly attuned to a new imperative in what clothes have to deliver. She thus used a formula of function – ease, comfort and versatility – that she then combined with her personal aesthetics in a way she had never confronted before.
“I worked on my first harlan + holden collection during the lockdown in Milan, and it was a huge challenge. In those days of isolation, away from friends and family and living with so much uncertainty, our homes became not just a place to live and seek shelter, but the home became a much bigger concept,” the Italian designer elaborates. “Our Home came into focus to inspire us to adopt a new lifestyle, to take it slower and prioritize doing the things that matter most. It was a revelation that made me appreciate harlan + holden’s brand values even more, perfectly in tune with today.”
The new collection comes with confident volumes, exuberant shapes and perfected proportions – all the recognizable qualities of Facchinetti’s creative flair and identity that has now been expertly fused into harlan + holden’s established clean lines and one-movement wardrobe pieces.
harlan + holden’s customers can now experience leisurewear with couture silhouettes, along with high-performance foundational pieces. Unique shapes and volumes that are essence of Facchinetti’s design philosophy come into play to create impactful outfits with a feeling of utmost ease. As our priorities shift we look towards investing in clothes that solve, rather than adorn. The harlan + holden 01 collection is here to become the solution, where comfort and ease are paramount.
