Our Story

A year ago, founder Henrietta, launched H. Holderness trying to solve a problem.

She noticed that there were’t base-layers that girls wanted to wear. The women she saw were choosing to wear their gym leggings instead of traditional thermals because they wanted to wear the same thing from breakfast to bed (piste to party).

The problem being, gym leggings look nice, but they aren’t made for being worn under salopettes, nor for cold climates.

With the design experience she gained studying at Central Saint Martins, she set out to created product that performed on the slopes and look good enough to show off post-piste. Apparel that combined functionality and aesthetics, transitioning from day to night, ski slopes to après.

So here's our proposition: let's get rid of those woolen thermals and say yes to base-layer leggings that not only do their job on the slopes but look great even when they're not hidden under your salopettes. For those snow days, mountain hikes, yoga poses and woodland runs.

We’re really proud of our all our products and we hope you love them as much as well do.


 

Our Design

Our first collection is inspired by the Canterbury Plains that wind 180 kilometers between the Southern Alps of New Zealand and the Pacific Ocean.

Proof that a shift in perspective transcends how we perceive nature and becomes something beautifully unidentifiable.
