Shipley, Halmos, Gossip

When you walked into the Shipley & Halmos show, there was a collective cry of, "Wait, we have to stand?" and "Where's the presentation?" It was, in fact a zig-zag runway show. The boys made the same collection about four times in different color ways. There were very Betty Draper high-waisted, cropped, skinny pants made of crisp silk in turquoise, black, pale pink. There were cut out shoulders, like at Charlotte Ronson, and lots of silk layering over turtlenecks. Philip Crangi's delicately strung chain and bar jewelry was the highlight. His silver necklaces, belts and earrings were perfect. Not so perfect were the Conde girls bashing their very important boss loud enough for the models to hear backstage.
