Launched by iconic designer Roy Halston Frowick in 1968, Halston cemented its place in fashion history during the 1970s, when it became <i>the</i> go-to label for nightlife-loving jet-setters. Originally a milliner, Halston had created Jacqueline Kennedy's inaugural pillbox hats before moving on to clothing design — outfitting Bianca Jagger, Liza Minelli and other celebrities and socialites in his minimalist caftans, jumpsuits, and ankle-skimming dresses rendered in luxe cashmere and suede. After a lengthy hiatus, Halston reemerged during late aughts with collections that featured all the plunging necklines, flattering cuts and one-shoulder styles as their Disco-era predecessors. Through its diffusion line Halston Heritage, the label has expanded its repertoire to include chic leather handbags, shoes, and other accessories.

Launched by Roy Halston Frowick in 1968, the self-titled men’s and women’s ready-to-wear label is synonymous with sophistication and First Lady style. The creator of Jackie Kennedy's signature pillbox hat and the designer of choice for Liza Minelli during the heyday of her career by the early '70s, Halston had been named 'the premier fashion designer of all America' by Newsweek magazine. Since his death, the label has had several owners and creative directors, the latest owner being Hollywood heavyweight Harvey Weinstein who revived the label, along with Jimmy Choo’s Tamara Mellon, stylist Rachel Zoe and former Versace designer, Marco Zanini, for fall 2008. Featured on the racks of luxury retailers around the world, it is with great pleasure that we add this iconic American label to the Gilt Groupe collection.
