Halston Sunglasses Netflix
The sunglasses the character Halston wears in the show on Netflix are just pure genius and I am sure many people are going crazy ordering them right now.
They epitomise the 1980's Aviators style of the day. They are a slightly 'bigger' and more exciting spin on the ones Tom Cruise wore for the film 'Top Gun.'
The actual designer sunglasses Ewan McGregor wears in the film are produced by Tom Ford and are called the Injected Aviator Sunglasses. (Top Picture)

What was Halston known for?
Halston & Friends (Circa 1980.)
Halston was an American born fashion designer from Iowa who started off as a window dresser before becoming a hat maker. He opened up his hat store in 1953.
His hats were worn by the rich and famous in America in the fifties. This included the infamous pillar box hat was worn by Jackie Kennedy at her husband's inaugration cermony for presidency. This was his first step on the ladder to fame.
When hats became less fashionable, Halston then moved on to fashion and opened his first store in 1968.
Who is responsible for the wardrobe in the 'Halston' series?
Jeriana San Juan was the chief wardrobe designer behind the Netflix production and the person we need to thank for bringing this fashion back into the forefront along with the show creators.
She designed all 1200 of the outfits, recreating everything as Halston would have made it. She studied his entire fashion career and emulated every single look herself- occasionally using actual Halston pieces.

San Juan was always inspired by Halston in her fashion career, before she was even asked to provide the fashion for the show. When she was booked she had to delve even further to find all the nuances of Halston, by looking through the extensive Women's Wear Daily Archive (WWD) at the New York Public Library to get the show's fashion 100% spot on.

The sunglasses are bold, iconic and suggest power and sophistication.
These glasses also look wonderful when you wear them with a simple outfit. They do not need much dressing around them. Less is more when you wear this style.
