1970s One Shoulder Red Jersey Halston Dress

This is perhaps the most iconic of all of the Halston silhouettes and he was a master at this cut. There is a certain sexiness caused by the illusion of having the entire dress suspended by one hook at the shoulder. It gives the sense that undoing that hook would cause the entire dress to drop in a puddle around you. There actually is an inner dress that is made from the same synthetic jersey. It skims over the body in a long sheath and has a slit traveling up on side of the leg opposite to the draped side. Over this is lies the panel of jersey suspended from the shoulder. This top layer hooks into place and then cascades loosely down and over the inner layer for the ultimate Grecian goddess feel. A classic and iconic piece that is perfect for traveling as they are wash and wear and travel exceedingly well. Easy to style too - a quick change of shoe takes it day to night in a snap. Museum quality and really an exquisite gown. Excellent condition.
