Halston Couture Pastel Rainbow Hand Beaded - Sequin Silk Dress Gown, 1970s
Lightness is key to vintage Halston. No matter the mood that a vintage Halston design evoked his styles always present themselves as effortless and aware of the wearer’s shape. With the usage of a wide range of textures to make his dresses stand out, Halston designs are regarded as staple of American fashion of the late 20th century. Made from a peach silk chiffon covered in pastel rainbow hand-done beadwork with sequins throughout, this couture 1970s slip dress recalls the 1920’s flapper in a reimagined light.
A deep scoop neck softly frames the décolletage as the strands of beaded fringe move the eye vertically. Having a light fit though the waist, this dress falls from the hip into a high-low hemline accentuated by hanging bead strands. A low scoop on the back adds a dash of sexiness to the softness of this dress. Worn alone or paired with a stylish bolero this Halton design could make for the perfect evening or party dress. A version of this dress is even held as part of the MET’s collection.
