"I think what Halston and Elsa Peretti did was heat up their minimalism with hedonism and sensuality." Harold Koda Curator Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art
A scorpion, a bean, an open heart, a rattlesnake, a Mexican horse bit, a tear drop.
A romantic, rollicking, tempestuous friendship with Halston and when the friendship ended, Elsa Peretti threw a sable coat Halston had given her dramatically into the fire.
"I remember seeing The Treasures of Tutankhamun at the Metrolopitan Muesum of Art in the late 1970s and I thought of Elsa. It was visually very different but emotionally the same - very personal, kind of like forever." Hiro
