The charm of an outfit comes in the ability to balance out & include both the scream and the whisper, the bold and the shy, the lady and the rebel, a little bit of truth and a little bit of a illusion. The PR Series creates both kinds of pieces as we understand that the weight of impact requires a shift among accessories, for style as well as for amusement.
As the engagement season comes to a close, most of us will begin preparing for the events we've been invited to and it's more often than not that women seek out softer looks for more of these formal events, which reminded us of one of the greatest designers for this very balance that we seek out when working.

For those of you who don't know much about Halston, he was the first great American designer. His entourage was so loyal to him, Vogue's Andre Leon Talley came up with a moniker for the group, the Halstonettes.
His reign over the fabulous discotheque era changed the American standard for formal evening wear by dressing the gods and goddesses of the infamous Studio 54.

So, on this lovely Tuesday afternoon, we thought it'd be nice to send some over some inspiration from one of NY's finest for this year's party outlook.
