1984 Halston Deep Pink & Silver Densely Sequinned & Heavily Beaded Top w Wide Neckline
The twin of this top in green was featured in the November issue of Vogue magazine. The 1984 collection was especially intricate and the majority of the runway garments were heavily beaded and/or sequinned. This top is from that collection and is one of the heaviest, most densely beaded and sequined pieces I have ever had from him in the shop.
This top is so good in person and has a heavy tactile feel to it that the photos cannot convey. It is gorgeous. The base fabric is a black silk crepe chiffon. Onto this is a dense application of deep pink sequins, silver sequins and silver glass tube beads. These have all been hand applied and individually placed in that curving design that you see. They completely cover the top with not a single inch left uncovered. Parts of the design that follow the silver curving parts have a fringe detailing made out of the tube beads. These add an amazing movement to the top when you move. The top itself is cut loose and easy with a wide boat neck, dolman sleeves and an easy cut through the body. Each sleeve ends in a jagged finish that I love. Excellent condition.
Fully lined in a black silk crepe chiffon and slips on to wear. All the work is done by hand. The easy cut should allow it to fit a range of sizes and would work on a small frame too and just be oversized.
