We all became obsessed with Halpern's bold tendency towards disco fever, and all things glamorous, as we witnessed his almost instant rise in the fashion industry. It didn't take long for a whole host of celebrities and fashion influencers to be seen wearing some Halpern spectacles at all sorts of evening events. Halpern looks exude an exciting freedom and energy that is almost addictive and quite literally makes you want to get up and dance. This collection presented nothing less, with crazy color and pattern combinations providing endless possibilities.
In a previous article discussing Simone Rocha Fall 2018, a collection debuted on the same day, the word 'excess' was used to describe Rocha's overall theme this season. Looking to the Halpern collection, the word 'excess' once again comes to mind. Excess here, however, is done in a very different way. While for Simone Rocha, excess presented societal importance and demonstrated a degree of professionalism and superiority, Halpern goes for a carefree vibe, where being drowned in sequins and shine equals limitless adventure. You'll be just about open to anything; perhaps even traveling back in time to go crazy at Studio 54.
