^ You can have mine...I wouldn't look good in it...
Does anyone know if his suits and such were made by Halston? Sounds strange, but...Karl wears Dior and Diesel - I don't remember if Halston actually made things like men's suits and sportswear...

I know Boomer his appartment was GRAND! The minimalistic design was so clean and pleasing to the eye, 30 years later it still looks modern! The Warhols of him and Liza are impressive.

Thanks for the photos and links.

I don't recall he designed any menswear himself, the menswear sadly came when he began licensing his brand for many products and sold it to JC Penney

Maybe his suits were tailored.

I'm wondering when will the Halston movie come out? There was some talk about it around 2008...

^ I know! They said Jude Law was interested (although he's not tall enough...I see Hugh Jackman, myself...) but nothing more was said after that..It would be a great (and sad) movie...

Yeah I recall Jude Law being mentioned, yet probably Hugh Jackman or Clive Owen could be good choices too. You've said it, it would be a great and sad movie...if they do it I wish they just focus mainly on his best years and leave the sad part for the end captions or so...

Roy Halston is a hero. The water pic above is great!

I'm new here...hello everyone!! LOVED reading this Halston thread and taking in all the images....between the man himself, his connections, his work and his fantastic apartment there is a lot to drool over!!!

For those interested, this was Halston's first home in Des Moines, Iowa (around the corner from my bungalow).....its become a bit run down, sadly....



And an early 70s silk hand painted caftan, ombre dyed from soft sky blue to a steely grey blue at asymetrical hemline....



neckline



and the silk jersey underdress.....



Didn't quite see anything like it here so thought you'd like to see it!

Ang
