Henry Holland compares Chris Martin to Saved by the Bell character

Designer Henry Holland thinks fashion needs technology to move forward.

Henry Holland thought Chris Martin bore an uncanny resemblance to Zack Morris from Saved by the Bell during Coldplay's appearance on The X Factor UK.

The British band wowed studio and TV audiences with their upbeat set during Sunday night's (13Dec15) live final, roping in the help of dancing apes to sing new track Adventure of a Lifetime.

Chris wore a white T-shirt with green patterned panel detailing, dark trousers and brightly coloured high top trainers. The outfit had an '80s feel to it, which Henry thought looked like actor Mark-Paul Gosselaar's small screen alter ego.

"Anyone know if there is a particular reason Chris Martin is dressed like Zac (sic) from saved by the bell?!" Henry asked his Twitter fans.

Henry's followers clearly agreed, with one telling the designer: "@henryholland I think, only guessing mind, that he's dressed like a trippie glasto that forgot to change his clothes......"

As well as designing for the catwalk, Henry also dresses some of the world's most stylish celebs. During his London Fashion Week show in September (15), Henry got his two close pals Daisy Lowe and Alexa Chung to buy the garments directly from the shoppable runway. Henry places great importance on the power of technology in fashion, and integrated payments into his show by allowing the crowd to purchase pieces as they watched.

"The fact that we broadcast our lives all over the internet means all aspects of our lives become more curated," he recently told Britain's Evening Standard newspaper.

"People are conscious about what their houses look like in their Instagram feeds and they’re conscious of their outfits. If they like their outfit they’ll post it, it’s show-off. People are more conscious of what their lives look like and we all know the reality is you’re sat by yourself with a hot chocolate."
