If last season’s girl was a bad ass chola then Henry Holland's autumn/winter muse has a similarly ballsy outlook, but an altogether different background. Behind the scenes pre-show – where pal Kelly Osbourne gave him the Fashion Police treatment on camera - he explained that the House of Holland lady isn’t so much of a lady at all, but a debauched debutante and - we imagine - a spoilt little rich girl who is determined to be on her very naughiest behaviour of a Saturday night.

So far, so Henry – an atypical Holland babe doesn't exactly dream of staying at home, swathed in a cut-price chenille dressing gown, watching a Will and Grace box set while devouring a tub of mint-choc-chip. Which goes far to explaining the abundance of glitzy, night-out things that you (or his many A-lister fun-makers) could wear whenever the heck you want: crystal work (and we're not just talking about the fallen chandeliers on set), taffeta satins, metallic leathers and paillette sequins.

To a crowd-pleasing soundtrack - this one was pumped with early ‘90s trance and house - Henners sent a riot of party-friendly bright pinks and reds, evening fabrics and decorative embellishment down the runway. Sobering it up into that sorry-not-sorry 4am bleary-eyed place was denim, biker – or bomber - jackets and carry-all but kooky backpacks (the kind that could last you a wild weekend stayover).

And as one of his superfriends and FROW stalwarts, Pixie Geldof rightly stated on her instgram - it was utterly #funkyoffish. Meaning it had all of the off-kilter, sickly sweet and meticulously planned ironic signifiers the coolest crowds go for right now. Expect the ‘Rich Bitch’ sweatshirts and bomber jacket to be a top choice for buyers next season – if the outfits of LFW are anything to go by, no one has given up on that breed of wink-wink wardrobe addition.
