>> Hopefully this latest fashion-related Weinstein project turns out a little better than the last -- "Factory Girl" was pretty much a let-down. Such a good story, not translated well on-screen. But I digress. Harvey Weinstein just bought himself the Halston label, which could really use a good kick in the pants right about now, a la Vionnet and Nina Ricci. The idea is to bring Tamara Mellon of Jimmy Choo fame in to assist with the creative direction and the brand building of the new and improved Halston label. Although Weinstein is currently romancing Marchesa's Georgina Chapman, he squashed any rumors that his latest purchase might be a present: "Georgina has no desire to leave Marchesa at all," he told WWD.
I guess only time will tell whether this is a good thing or not. Please let it be good. A rejuvenated Halston could be just what the doctor ordered.
