c.1975 Halston Brown Silk Nylon Jersey Sheer Sleeves and Back Front Button Top
This has that perfect sleek and sexy minimal feel that Halston excelled at. I have included photos of two similar pieces from The Mets collection that date this to approximately 1975.
The top is made out of a fine stretch silk nylon mix jersey that combines two weights of the fabric. A more opaque, double layered version is used for the front, sides and the collar. Then he used just a single layer of the fabric that leaves it semi-transparent for a sexy twist to the sleeves and the entire back. It is almost startling to turn around and have the entire back see through. The longer cut makes it incredibly versatile since you can wear it as a top or layer it as a long fitted cardigan. It is cut to fit skinny and fitted and it just fit my dress form so will sit even better on a smaller frame. It is insanely comfortable once on and very sexy. It appears to have never been worn or worn very little. Excellent condition
Unlined with an opaque front and sides. The sleeves and back are semi-transparent. Buttons to close at the front and there are two buttons on each cuff.
