To begin, ‘I started by looking at the key looks in the series and narrowed those down to the 10 most iconic designs that I felt would resonate most with our customer,’ explained Robert. 

While the designer brought his own creativity and sensibility to the line, he paid homage to the American glamour that Roy Halston Frowick became synonymous with.

‘Halston loved color, so I was sure to highlight that, and I focused on shimmer jersey fabrics and batik prints, which he was known for.’

Noteworthy styles in the capsule collection include the “Elsa,” a sapphire blue batik printed silk chiffon caftan, a key look in the miniseries.

'I love the “Liza.” It’s a shimmering silver sheer pleated caftan with a bodysuit. 'I love that the silhouette is very reminiscent of Halston yet the bodysuit modernizes it. It also has amazing movement when it’s on the body.'

Each of the ten pieces, named after the Halstonettes (Halston's entourage of models, a term coined by fashion editor André Leon Talley), embody the luxe, sexy glamour of the 1970s and 80s, an era defined by Halston.

While many of the iconic Halston archive dresses appear in the Netflix series, a noteworthy style in the capsule collection includes the “Elsa,” a sapphire blue batik printed silk chiffon caftan, a key look in the miniseries.

Also the “Beverly,” a red and fuchsia printed silk chiffon cascade gown, and the “Anjelica,” a ruched viscose jersey one shoulder gown. 

The “Liza” is admittedly Robert’s favorite.

‘Roy Halston Frowick single-handedly created luxury American fashion,’ said Robert. 

‘Halston has always had a tremendous influence on my career, in an industry where his imprint remains decades later.’

Robert was appointed CCO in January of 2020, after succeeding Marie Mazelis, who exited the company just as quietly after a seven-year run.

‘In one way or another Halston and I are very similar. We are both minimalists when it comes to designing collections.
