About

Halston revolutionized the way women dress and is one of the few designers, alongside Claire McCardell and Norman Norell, to define what is American fashion. Throughout most of the seventies he epitomized the glamour, as well as the decadence of the era, becoming a central figure in the nightlife scene of New York's Studio 54. He was known for his flattering body-conscious clothing in jersey and silks. This breathtaking jacket & camisole set is a perfect example of his genius. The whole garment is fashioned with pastel hue glass-beads layered on embroidered pale nude silk-crepe. The glossiness and suppleness of the sequins give the appearance of a liquid surface, almost becoming a skin on its own! I love the abstract floral pattern which is so incredibly modern. Both pieces are finished with three rows of sparkling silver beads; giving it a beautiful finished polish. The "easy-to-wear" kimono style bell-sleeve jacket allows the garment to drape in such a chic way. A very sensual two-piece ensemble that will become a favorite in your wardrobe.
