It was only a matter of time before an actual bag designer released her clutch into our clutches, and here we go: meet Holly Dunlap, former Lily Pulitzer head, current creative director of Hollywould, and marathon party girl.
The first time we met Holly, we were knocking back Cuervo shots in her Elizabeth Street boutique – of course, that was before she got Lydia Hearst and Theodora Richards to model her designs in a calmer setting (the ground floor of Christie’s; Tinlsey Mortimer was also in the show).
Now Holly has a showroom across the street from Chanel, but the guts of her bag (which she designed herself) could belong to the bad girl in your sorority…
Holly says… “Of course this is the day you get my bag! My favorite thing is this lip balm that you can only buy in Switzerland, I think… I got it the last time I was skiing… I also have a hair pick, I never leave the house without a hair pick. Also a little mini hairbrush, and my favorite earrings – they’re little silver skulls. These are my new Justin Timberlake shorts from the concert last night. Aren’t they hysterical? Plus my Justin Timberlake button! And Brideshead Revisited, which I’ve never read before. It’s incredibly written and so interesting; it’s nice to have something substantial instead of fluff.”
