First Ladies’ style evokes elegance, style, sophistication and glamour. And the press readily covers the style choices of First Ladies. Whether it is the departure of former FLOTUS Michelle Obama and her inimitable style or the minimalistic elegance of current FLOTUS Melania Trump, there is a lot of buzz and tongues wagging about fashion and style according to First Ladies of the United States.
On the heels of Natalie Portman’s Oscar-nominated performance in “Jackie,” Black Halo has launched a limited edition ‘Jackie O’ Ten-Year Anniversary Collection. The classic black ‘Jackie O’ dress has been a part of Black Halo’s iconic collections for over ten years. In celebration of the ‘Jackie O’ dress, Black Halo’s creative director Laurel Berman has designed a special capsule collection.
“The ‘Jackie O’ dress is a one-piece dress that conjures up the style of Jackie Kennedy Onassis. It has transformed the way women dress, taking them from boardroom to bar or desk to dinner. It is the epitome of one-piece dressing,” details Francine Weiss, Ideas 8 public relations representative for Black Halo. “Black Halo launched the ‘Jackie O’ dress ten years ago, so they celebrating with a ten-year capsule collection inspired by the ‘Jackie O’ dress.”
The ‘Jackie O’ capsule collection features the classic sequined Jackie O gown, Jackie O dress, 3/4-sleeve Jackie O dress, Jackie O jumpsuit, Jackie O romper, and the Jackie mini. “To show the incredible shape of the dress the capsule collection comes in neutral shades of white, ivory and cream, as well as the different fabrications of crush velvet, sequins, bonded mesh, leather, and laser-cut lace appliques.”
“Black Halo started in Los Angeles as a jeans brand that spoke to the LA style of the early 2000s, reflecting what its creative direct Laurel Berman would wear,” explains Francine Weiss. “The brand evolved to a brand that was known for impeccable fit and structure, evidenced in the brand’s many one-piece items.”
“One of the great aspects of this ‘Jackie O’ capsule collection is that individual garments in the collection are trans-seasonal with a color palette that is easily adaptable for every season, lending itself to bridal as well. The garments can be used for work, date night, a night out on the town with friends or for special occasions, particularly with all the different silhouettes in the capsule collection,” contends Weiss.
The limited edition ‘Jackie O’ anniversary capsule collection ranges from $390–$1200 and will be available exclusively at ShopBop and on Black Halo’s site, with exclusive pieces for Neiman Marcus Online launching later this year.
