Haute Author Kaye Holland

British journo, Kaye Holland, was born in Watford, a town labelled by Lonely Planet as “the kind of place that makes you want to travel.” They weren’t wrong. After a stint at the BBC, Kaye made her way to the Middle East where she worked at Time Out for three years, before heading to the Caribbean to help re-launch a lifestyle magazine. China came calling in 2010 and Kaye spent 18 months based in Beijing as Time Out’s Special Project Editor, before returning to London ahead of the Olympic Games. Kaye is now Haute Living’s London curator and also freelances for numerous lifestyle and travel titles, in addition to presenting a weekly hospital radio show. When she isn’t travelling, Kaye is interested in fashion, food, socialising and (for her sins) follows the footballing fortunes of her home team, Watford.

Pall Mall gets poshed up
