Halston and tye-dye go hand-in-hand, literally. This early 1970s hand painted chiffon bell sleeve "caftan" inspired dress is in shades of grey, light lilac, yellow, sky blue, lime, and soft pink. We may have missed a color, but these things do happen when being seduced by a Halston that beckons you to St. Tropez, on a yacht, with a champagne flute in your hand, barefoot...get the picture? The dress has a cream jersey attached tank slip which keeps you from giving a peep show and gives the dress more depth than just being a "beach cover up." It wouldn't be ridiculous to wear this to a summer black tie with some bold tribal jewelry, but we love it just as much pool-side in the 'Bu for a BBQ, too.

Halston hand dyed chiffon bell sleeve caftan dress with attached cream jersey slip, c. early 1970s. Modern 4 to 8 (very flexible sizing). Minor color fading. SOLD
