Designer Henry Holland sits down with collaborator Max Wallis to discuss his MySpace inspired ‘Top Eight ‘ collection.

Ah, the MySpace Top 8. You must remember it? It was the cause of much awkwardness in your school canteen if your mate had shifted you down the list. It was the only true way that you could analyse your social status, and it was undeniably brutal.

Manchester-born designer Henry Holland says he pretty much “lived “ for his Top eight. It was actually on the social media platform that he sold his first t-shirt for which he became famous for and what has acted as the foundations of his highly successful brand, House of Holland. These days, the brand is in a league of it ‘s own, with a front row littered with celebs, impressive reviews and even an impending Emerging Menswear Designer nomination as this issue goes to press.

For his latest project, he ‘s harking back to the past and paying homage to MySpace with his Top 8 t-shirt collection. The t-shirts have been created in collaboration with eight unique creatives including doodle artist Hattie Stewart, meme maker She ‘s Vague and poet Max Wallis, who sits down with Holland to talk about his latest project.

About Gay Times

As the longest-running LGBTQ publication in the world, our heritage is deeply important to us. We’ve come so far as a community, and it’s important to recognise and reflect upon the people who have helped us to where we are today. While evolving with the times in order to better serve our wider community, it felt fitting that the first cover star of our rebrand should be Boy George. Not only because he himself has undergone many evolutions throughout his illustrious career, but also because we’re celebrating the 30th anniversary of his first Gay Times cover. Adam Lambert sat down with Boy George to discuss his upcoming Las Vegas residency, releasing new music with Culture Club, finding inspiration to write music, his desired collaborations and his magnum opus. They also reflect on how his life has changed since he first covered Gay Times 30 years ago. Elsewhere in the issue: Jodie Harsh on the shrinking of London’s queer nightlife; Aidan Faminoff on his coming out story; The Gay Times Honours; Henry Holland and poet Max Wallis on their upcoming collaboration plus fashion, culture and opinions from around the world. This issue also features a collection of essays and poems penned by individuals from all pockets of our community. Welcome to the new Gay Times.
