Halston - 1972

Now that Sarah Jessica Parker has parted ways with Halston Heritage and backer Harvey Weinstein and designer Marios Schwab are also out, perhaps it's time for a look at some original Halston garments from 1972.  Above, an angora and wool skirt is tied at the waist and worn with cashmere pants.  Recognize the necklaces?  Elsa Peretti designed them for Halston.

 Ribbed cashmere sweater.

 Matte jersey tunic and pants.

 Camel colored trench coat in Ultrasuede.
