a sneak peek at the new button scarf

coming soon

In the slow process of revamping the Holland Cox line, I’ve discovered that wearable accessories are the most interesting for me to design and to make. I envisioned a cowl-style scarf that would be bold and colorful, but also cozy warm to wear in the winter (I hate being cold!). You can get a big, […]

a sneak peek at the evolved tote bag

coming soon

My inspiration for the very first Holland Cox tote bag is not only my perfect tote, but my longtime fixation on the idea that versatile does not mean plain. A tote bag is the sort of wardrobe workhorse you need to be really functional: it should hold lots of stuff, and it should be easy […]

drawing inspiration

coming soon

One of my new year’s resolutions was to draw more. I wanted to get into the habit of drawing regularly, but also I was intrigued by the idea of drawing on fabric, which I had never done before, and figured I could use some practice before I jumped in. I started by delving into my […]

inspiration and obsession: or, how I always know what to make next

coming soon

Last October, I spent a whole day in NYC’s garment district. I was in the middle of finishing my evolution collection, so I was very much in the mindset of looking forward, and thinking about what comes next for me as a designer, and for the Holland Cox label. Without going into excruciating detail about […]

a sneak peek at the Holland Cox satchel

The best part of my job is making the pictures in my head come to life. The thrill of being able to hold something that started out as just as an idea will never get old! My new collection is all about a brand new handbag style: the satchel. The first versions of the satchel […]

evolution, part 1

coming soon

It’s been a long time, friends! These babies arrived in the mail the other day…my 10th anniversary labels! Officially Holland Cox was born December 2004, but trust me it was the softest of “soft launches,” so who can say what my actual first day was? But no matter how you slice it, I’ve been in […]

sneak peek: 2 yards 10 gifts!

coming soon

Later this month, I’ll be releasing an e-book of sewing patterns called 2 Yards 10 Gifts. It is exactly what it says on the tin! Ten gifts that you can make, using only two yards of fabric (yes, you can make all ten with just 2 yards)! Next weekend, I’ll be hosting a special workshop […]

spring 2012 preview: sanctuary

coming soon

I have a postcard of the Orangerie at Versailles on the bulletin board above my sewing machine. I remember my first visit, and how enthralled I was with its extreme precision. A sculpted and geometric garden like l’orangarie appeals to the part of my brain that likes it when things are orderly; the part of […]
