1970s Halston Deep Copper Gold Metallic Lame Lurex Caftan Dress

This Halston IV caftan, is a made from a stunning deep copper gold lurex lame and is an easy way to be instantly dressed up and still be entirely comfortable. The simple, classic design makes it is an easy way to be instantly dressed up and still entirely comfortable. I have seen Rachel Zoe wear the twin of this one around LA. I have also have had these in the shop in solid colored jersey, but the lame ones are just that little bit extra special I think. These easy to wear caftan dresses can go from the beach to entertaining at home with flats, to full on evening glamor. It is cut deceptively simple with a slit front neck and a second slit that goes up to the knee up the center seam at the front. The rest is loose and cut to skim over the body. The sleeves flow out from the body of the caftan and narrow down at the wrist. The skirt flows to the floor and widens out as it reaches the hem. You can wear this loose as I have photoed it here, or belt it if you want to add more shape and definition. This is a wonderful piece with all the lines you love from Halston. Excellent condition.
