HALSTON: INVENTING AMERICAN FASHION. Lesley Frowick. Rizzoli International Publications, Inc., New York, 2014. 280 pp. with 256 ills. (148 col.). 32 x 25 cm. LC 2014-936539 ISBN 9780847843497 In English.
Publisher's description: Written by Halston's niece and confidante, this is the first monograph to chronicle the designer's life and his glamorous, minimalist aesthetic that personified American fashion in the electric 1970s. After rising in the fashion world from his beginnings as a milliner for Bergdorf Goodman, Roy Halston Frowick (1932-1990) launched his eponymous womenswear label in 1968, buoyed by his connections with socialites and celebrities. As the creator of Jackie Kennedy's signature pillbox hat and as Liza Minnelli's fashion guru throughout the 1970s and 80s, Halston was synonymous both with American style's modern, glamorous look and an A-list clientele. The Halston look continues to be revered today as a marker of American fashion at its peak. This book chronicles the ultrachic Halston's journey from his homespun roots to the acme of urban fame, illustrated through the lens of the author's personal archives and early sketches, as well as unseen Joe Eula and Stephen Sprouse drawings.
