If you’re loving Ryan Murphy’s new Halston on Netflix as much as we are, you could wait for the official fashion line to come out and pay $995 to $1,595 for it, or hey, why not get these Halston looks for less? Just a thought…
And believe us, you’ll be craving those gorgeous designs after binging the limited series Halston on Netflix. From his ever-present smoldering cigarette down to his black leather loafers, Ewan McGregor portrays the self-made American designer with panache.
While the temperamental genius’s wild personal life takes center stage, the writers do dive deep into his innovative process of creating those unforgettable silhouettes that flattered every shape and size. It’s a real education in high fashion, and the pressure it takes to create it.
Although Halston came to fame in the early 1960s as the designer of Jackie Kennedy’s pillbox hat—and was the go-to guy for stylish celebs like Elizabeth Taylor, Bianca Jagger, Anjelica Huston, and Cher—the Studio 54 legend’s garments are not only for the rich and famous.
That’s right: anyone can buy from the Halston off-the-rack line at Amazon, plus other retailers. And if you’re not a label snob, you can also find some super-cool dresses “inspired by” the master clothier’s signature style.
So, as we mentioned, there will be a 10-piece capsule line of Halston-trend clothing specifically tied into Halston on Netflix for pre-order in June 2021. But what if you want your vintage-inspired fashions now? We’ve got you covered! (literally)
