>> Marios Schwab’s third collection for Halston was a direct reference to the ‘70s. “The Halston girl is a temptress,” said Schwab, who referenced Lauren Hutton’s character in “American Gigolo” as his inspiration. The presentation, which took place last night at Cedar Lake, had models set up on a pedestal wearing an array of gowns and dresses fitting for a glamorous party at Studio 54. Fluid Grecian-inspired chiffon gowns, pleated and draped cocktail dresses, and even sequined glow-in-the-dark creations — the lights dimmed down every 10 minutes to show off the display — were all present and dipped in hues of white, melon green, olive, and brown. However, it was Schwab’s daywear selection that really stood out amongst the crowd, most notably, a knotted shirtdress made in supple brown leather. Schwab has to head back to London to present his namesake collection, but not before indulging in a “a couple of cocktails” to celebrate the Halston collection. And what exactly will he be drinking to toast the night? “I like the mixed berry kind,” said Schwab.
