1970s Rare Black Silk Satin Halston Wrap Evening Coat

I love Halston and to find one of his silk evening coats is a rare thing and this one is exceptional. I have had a similar version in red that was cut a little shorter but I love this length for its versatility. It is cut with his masterful mind towards minimalist and with the utmost respect to the fabric. This beautiful little coat is all rounded seams combined with the sensual tactile experience of the silk satin. The color is a deep jet black and when done in a silk satin, it has a depth and extra tone that conveys a sense of rich luxury. It slips on, wraps and ties into place to create shape. Once tied the the rounded, almost sculptural shoulders are balanced with the created flare at the hip. It is tagged with the couture black tag and is a wonderful versatile and rare piece that is both infinitely wearable and collectible. Excellent condition.

Fully lined in a black silk and wraps and ties to close. Front slant pockets on each hip and original tie belt. The wrapped cut will allow for a fuller range of sizes.
