Halston at New York Fashion Week
Designer Marios Schwab was at the peak of his form in New York last week. His show delivered muted hues, severe lines, draping and a return to basics in what appears to be a distinctive shift in focus at fashion label Halston.
Pops of color kept things fresh and alive, whilst draping and pleats retained a classic elegance to the Halston Collection.
In a throwback to the 70s, there was also a noticeable disco edge to proceedings. It was, at times, like watching Bianca Jagger in her pomp.
The show also recalled the ‘Tom Ford at Gucci’ era of the 90s – most obviously in the metal hardware accents, use of white matte jersey and plunging decollatage.
The newest trend on which Schwab piggy-backed was the combination of gray and tan, with the tan component often comprising of fur and suede.
The slick backed hair and subdued makeup enhanced the clean and demure undertone of this collection – perfect for the starlet that believes her best accessory is her inner beauty.
"While Schwabs muses were not galloping down the runway on white horses they were a reminder of Tom Ford for Gucci in the 90's – most obviously with the metal hardware accents, usage of white matte jersey and plunging decollatage."
