1970s Rare Halston Silk Chiffon Gown

This is an amazing couture Halston three piece set that is absolutely divine! It is entirely cut on the bias with minimal seaming as was his signature style. The color is a hand dyed, deep forest green that is infinitely flattering on most skin tones and works as a beautiful alternative to black. Halston defined how woman dressed n the 1970s and his cut both flattered the body and was insanely sexy but they also are amazingly comfortable to wear. This set is no exception. It is feather light and you are barely conscious of wearing anything! The inner dress is suspended by two tiny straps of nude chiffon so at first glance it seems that it hangs by magic under the outer layer. The outer layer is fantastic with huge angled sleeves that drape almost to the ground and a angled hem that dips lower on each side. The sash can be worn at the waist or even wrapped turban style or at the neck. If left united it has a more caftan like feel. I styled it with the keyhole to the front but this can also be worn to the back. It is amazing and a fine example of Halston at his best! Excellent, seemingly unworn condition
