Harvey Weinstein has bought the iconic American brand Halston, reports WWD. Making perfectly clear that the venture has nothing to do with the Marchesa brand designed by his girlfriend Georgina Chapman, Weinstein claims that he has been looking for a brand to invest in as the next move for his company for a while and "In Halston, we found that brand that relates to the kind of movies that we make".

With Tamara Mellon on board to help turn the ailing company around, they aim to restore the brand to the success of its glory times when the namesake designer was at the helm. "We plan to really respect the DNA of the brand and bring it forward," she said, adding "that’s really where everybody has gone wrong with Halston over the years".
