Halston in The Week of The Fashion of New York Collection Spring/Summer 2009

Despite not receiving critical acclaim in his baptism of the last fashion week, Marco Zanini; commissioned to get afloat a signature mythical of the seventy fall into deep oblivion at the end of the 1980s, victim of an insurmountable economic crisis and textile imperialism, and returns to the catwalks thanks to the infusion of millions of those business conglomerates that now given by the fashion; He has made one more than passable collection that at least not boring like so many others.

Minimalism was the maxim of the founder of the House, Roy Haslton Frowick, remains the main premise in the collections of its new creative director, and in which cuts, they are clean, and the fall of the garments, prodigious.

The only concession to the striking, was, and is, the color.

Tunic dresses, asimericos, strapless, Greco-Roman cutting or with lantern, chiffon or silk knitted sleeves, and prodigiosisima lightness are the protagonists of uan collection marked seventies air coming to commemorate that golden era in which the excess was all the rage and the King of Kings was called Andy Warhol.

Although there is space for two versions of the shirt dress “Ultrasuede” Halston made so popular in the United States becoming one of the most popular and led the time.


The monkey, eminently made in 70’s, is others betting firm of Halston, whose range of proposals is not long and comprehensive, is rather limited, but better have a guideline and exploit it well, for lack of identity, not know to where to throw and keep trying. There is nothing a designer without personality or a brand without hallmark,.

For this reason, I certainly I stay with the flagship of the maison: with smooth and airy dresses.
