HALSTON A HARROD’S

Iconic fashion house Halston recently presented its newest fragrance in grand style at world-renowned Harrod’s Knightsbridge where 3 separate ultra-chic displays were set up for the occasion. 

Halston chose King Manichini Lipstick mannequins in grey pearl which were set amongst displays in cool mirrored, white, transparent and luminous surfaces in distinctive Halston minimal linear style.

The grey pearl gave a dynamic edge to the displays – King is incredibly devoted to its development of special blends and paint processes which compliment designer coutureandhave a chameleon-type of effect as their special metalpearls and fine metallics tend to absorb and reflect the tones of their display backgrounds.

These abstract mannequins are handmade entirely in Italy with the most exclusive materials from the highest quality paint blends to bases in genuine Italian leather. They are the pure essence of luxury.

King Manichini fondly remembers the unforgettable Roy Halston and the indelible influence he had on fashion at a time when the fashion world had this exceptional glamour with all kinds of news spilling out all of the time with this phenomenal fusion of creative people keeping company from actors to singers to artists to ex-first ladies.

It was not unusual to see photos of Andy Warhol, Liza Minelli, Mick and Bianca Jagger all photographed together during a night out on the town with the ever-elegant Halston.

We all know as well of his fashions which were often favored by another icon, Jacqueline Onassis.  Here for fun we have included some of these photos from those days.
