About

Breathtaking 1940's Hale Hawaii silk sarong ensemble fashioned in a gorgeous and vivid multi-colored tropical ocean scenic print. Just look at those colors! Along side designers such as Alfred Shaheen, this brand pioneered Hawaii's vital garment manufacturing industry by stretching beyond the limits imposed by the isolation of the Hawaiian Islands. I adore the low-cut plunge, sweetheart halter bodice which flows into a seductive nipped waist. This show-stopper comes complete with matching cropped bolero! The hourglass side sarong-tie wiggle design finishes this garment off with an iconic "femme fatale" vibe. A truly timeless piece of wearable art!

Measurements
Bust:36-37 inches

This vintage Hale Hawaii designer ensemble is in excellent condition with no rips, holes or discoloration. Perfectly working back metal-zipper and built-in bra support. Only sign of age is a few faint spots on the skirt which are not noticeable when worn. Please message for detailed pictures. This sarong set is over 60 years old and is truly stunning!
