The first trailer for Netflix’s limited series Halston is here. Starring the talented Ewan McGregor in the title role, the show promises a fascinating take on the fashion icon’s life.
Roy Halston Frowick, known simply as Halston, was a revolutionary fashion designer of the 1970s who basically ushered in the celebrity fashion designer’s culture at the time. Known for his versatility, McGregor looks like an ambitious, determined designer willing to risk anything to get to the top.
The show was produced by Ryan Murphy and Christine Vachon and Pamela Koffler of Killer Films. The clothes look predictably good, but what stands out in the few minutes of the video is the snazzy and luscious camera work. If the promo is any clue, Halston is going to be quite a ride.
The official description of the show reads: “The limited edition ‘Halston’ follows the legendary fashion designer (Ewan McGregor) who turns his one and only invented name into a global fashion empire that is literally synonymous with luxury, sex, status and fame He defines the era he lives in, the New York of the 1970s and 1980s – until a hostile takeover forces him to fight for control of his most precious asset … the Halston name itself. “
In addition to Ewan McGregor, Bill Pullman, Rory Culkin, Vera Farmiga and Krysta Rodriguez can be seen in significant parts in Halston.
Directed by Daniel Minahan, Halston will premiere on Netflix on May 14th.
