Halston: one word is all it takes to identify America’s first “superstar” designer. If the address 33 East 68th Street means nothing to you, consider this: not only is it where Roy Halston opened his first namesake boutique, it was the first luxury shop to flaunt a designer’s own moniker. He started out as a milliner at Bergdorf Goodman (his design was the first hat to ever make it into Harper’s Bazaar), and from Jackie O‘s pillbox hats he graduated to sexy disco dresses that summed up the decadent era of Studio 54.
Now, get ready for Halston Heritage, a line celebrating the rich and record-making history of the house. I’ve long loved Halston and have a few vintage pieces, and I’m becoming a fast fan of the new collection. The easy, masculine-meets-feminine separates and versatile dresses are the epitome of American chic…with a wardrobe of bags to complement it all! Whether it’s a slouchy hobo with embossed-python details, a shoulder bag of plush ruched leather, or a minimalist envelope clutch, every element exudes that effortless Halston essence. And even though it’s big on glamour, this line is well-priced. This is luxury you can easily attain and won’t think twice about wearing over and over again.
I’ve been asked to host the very first Halston Heritage boutique in the world in NYC on April 9th– another first! Please save the date, will have more details tomorrow!
Bag prices range from $325-$695.
