MR HALPERN LA & THE GUESTLIST
Karim and Michael Halpern first met when they were both shopping for textiles in New York City at the famous D&D Building. Karim asked Michael to model for his Karim Guest New York line. This lead to conversations about Michael’s American style, followed by an exclusive invitation from Karim - requesting Michael to join THE GUESTLIST, as the designer of the MR Halpern Los Angeles Collection.
With a diverse design background, Michael has successfully delved into the New York publishing industry, the Los Angeles film and television industry, and the interior design scenes of New York, Los Angeles, and Mexico City. He is now excited to invest his wealth of lifestyle and design expertise into his first line of men’s knitwear for THE GUESTLIST.
Whether he’s walking the streets of New York, roaming Berlin, driving around Los Angeles, or holidaying in Big Sur, Michael never compromises on style or comfort - a shared value with Karim. When you wear his collection, you are guaranteed to feel and look good irrespective of the situation - meeting with clients, going out to dinner, or just heading to the gym. Michael is serious about design, but also serious about fun. His design and color palette reflects this. Without losing vibrancy, the MR Halpern Los Angeles Collection showcases luxury in lifestyle, comfort, and flexibility.
THE GUESTLIST provides the ideal platform for Michael’s foray into the world of fashion. Combining his inherent flair with Karim’s textile expertise, and translating it through the unparalleled craftsmanship of the production facility in Mühlhausen, Germany, THE GUESTLIST is sure to witness a fine synthesis between the two visionaries.
