Rare 1972 Halston Couture Peach Silk Jersey Belted Shirt Dress
This 1972 dress has the added bonus of not only being documented but the documentation of the piece shows Roy Halston himself in the photo. This is a beautiful peach colored silk jersey version of the dress that you see just behind Halston's shoulder in the reference photo included in this listing. These long silk knit shirt dresses were a Halston staple and were designed for the chic and modern woman to wear while entertaining at home or for a night out. They give you the ability to move and be superbly comfortable all while never having to worry about being inappropriate for any situation. The fabric both hugs and skims over the body and is very sexy and sensual. The dress buttons all the way down and I love how the buttons are set close to the edge of the seam. It further suggests that with a few quick movements the wearer could be standing unclothed, with her dress puddled on the floor. These was one of Halston's signature pieces and every chic woman had to have one. It has the added benefit of being a piece that you can layer over other pieces because of how it does unbutton completely. Pastel piece like this are more rare and this one looks custom as all the interior stitches look to have been done by hand. It is both versatile and beautiful. An amazing and rare piece of fashion history. Excellent condition.
Unlined and buttons down the front to close. Each cuff has two buttons to close. Has its original matching tie belt. The fabric, which does have some stretch, and easy cut will allow it to fit a variety of sizes. I see one pin size brown spot on the front that would sit under the belt when on. The color is a slightly brighter version of peach in person then how it photoed. Much better in person.
