1970s Halston IV Rust Colored Jersey Wrap Dress

Halston is one of those rare labels that for whom the more time goes by it actually feels more relevant. It is easy to think of this piece as both a treasured collectible and a closet staple - knowing that every time you slip it on you will look and feel amazing. It has a definitive Grecian goddess feel to it combined with his signature simplicity and masterful draping - and a touch of Studio 54 sexiness thrown in. I normally stick to the main line label but make the exception for really fabulous pieces like this or the draped one shoulder dresses I have on the site from time to time. The dress simply slips on with elastic that runs through the waist to create just the hint of a suggestion of shape as it is cut very loose and easy even there. The front plunges deeply but the weight and placement of the fabric and interior elastic hold it in place so that you feel safe wearing it. It is cut on the bias so wraps and drapes to follow your every curve. The skirt is long and lean and the top blouses over. The wrapped styling allows the entire front to look like you could step out of the dress at any moment but it is designed to stay in place. A long sash in the same fabric can be wrapped and tied a million ways - the styling possibilities are endless. It's all old Hollywood meets Haslton's signature Studio 54 sexiness. Excellent condition.

Unlined and wraps to close with flat hooks at the waist to hold it in place. Smaller hook & eye on the skirt and plunge to hols it in place. Original tie belt. The easy fit and loose elastic waist with all the shape coming from tying the fabric belt make it easy to fit a range of sizes.
