New York: The latest in a procession of designers tapped to revive the Halston label, Marios Schwab presented his first collection for the hallowed house. While not exactly sticking to the archives, one could see hints of the modern master in a grey suede jumpsuit (almost an exact copy of a jersey version from Halston’s heyday) and draped dresses in velvet that showed off bits of skin. But Schwab’s own style shone through for structured dresses that carved out the woman’s shape in his signature, almost aggressive, way. Fur pieces injected a sense of luxury that felt both on-trend and appropriate for the house, and eye-popping red (a signature Halston color), turquoise and yellow enlivened the otherwise subdued palette of neutrals.
