The touted return of Halston came and went Monday, and it appears the only thing looking forward is its dedicated site on Net-a-Porter, which launched Super Tuesday.
Fans with $1,495 to blow on a jersey shirt dress could slip into one by Wednesday night because of a deal brokered between site and house, whereby two looks determined well in advance of this week's show by the Net-a-Porter powers would be ready to go within 24 hours.
While this could mean a whole new paradigm that could make costly runway shows an endangered species, Zanini's debut appears to have less than wowed the critics. Standouts? Sure, including this burnt orange dress. But is it enough to fulfill the frenzied media prophecy that Zanin (Donatella's right hand in the Versace design studio) is the second coming of Roy Halston Frowick?
Let's be kind and say not yet. But the Net-a-Porter Halston site–specifically the 3-minute shorts on the founder's history–are worth a look or even two.
