slow motion

Though the economy is still in shambles, most designers continue to showcase their upcoming collections via the catwalk. Halston, however, opted to take the road less traveled - literally and figuratively.

Model and literary descendant Dree Hemingway* was handpicked to star in the line's fall 2009 video lookbook, where the runway is replaced by a Manhattan street. There, Hemingway runs barefoot in a flowing yellow Chiffon dress from the upcoming line. Each block she passes lends a taste of the city: a hotel, a newsstand, a boutique, graffitied walls.

The video, as simple as it is, really is beautiful. I mean, c'mon, great clothes, great music, great colors, great cars. It doesn't get much better.

I like.




*Um, imagine Ernest Hemingway reading you bedtime stories as a child. Holy crap.
