Just like Halston, we’re unable to pick a favorite—they’re all our favorite. From the “Elsa,” a sapphire batik blue caftan that comes in two other prints produced by Rodriguez, to the fuchsia silk chiffon gown coined “Beverly,” and a gold lurex silk sunburst pleated caftan known as “Liza,” each of these pieces act as a timeline for Halston’s renowned designs.
But while Halston x Netflix references the past, the dresses are reimagined in a way that feels fresh and relevant. Although many of us would like to shop directly from our favorite television shows, turning up to a cocktail party in a Bridgerton-style corset might not have the same effect as it would at an 1800s ball.
“I really wanted the collection to be modern and elevated,” continues Rodriguez. “We altered the fabrications and proportions of the dresses to reflect the contemporary woman. Yes women today go to parties, but they also have lives outside of that. We took the gold and navy caftans and added catsuits underneath to make them more athletic; we have given the dresses a whole different demeanor.”
