True Romance

House of Holland Pre-Fall 14

The jersey pieces of the House of Holland Pre-Fall 2014 Collection, made in collaboration with Hattie Stewart, are based on the theatrical release poster of Tony Scott’s « True Romance ».

Other « True Romance »-inspired collection, makeup or video : Agent Provocateur Spring/Summer 2013 (this collection, designed by Sarah Shotton, expressed the concept of driving across the United States of America in a Cadillac, like Patricia Arquette in « True Romance »), Missoni Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 (the makeup of this show, by Lucia Pieroni, which used a saturated burgundy M.A.C lipstick, paid homage to various films, including « True Romance » ; the video campaign for this collection, directed by Mel Bles, featured « True Romance »-style models).

Furthermore, in December 2011, Cara Delevingne told « British Vogue » that her favorite film was « True Romance » (« It’s an awesome film. »)
