Halston & Warhol: Silver & Suede

Halston & Warhol: Silver & Suede

Halston and Warhol illuminate through their art and fashion a uniquely American point of view, one that matched high and low materials and deceptively simple forms with multistep processes. Both were outsiders, one from Pittsburgh and one from Iowa, whose New York careers challenged the status quo. For the first time, their lives and work are presented side by side in over 300 images with interviews and essays that explore their friendship and their art.
