We have previously rejoiced at Halston's reinvention of classical attire that reminds us of the Rational Dress Movement. These monastic gowns that silhouette and drape the body seductively are the epitome of effortless elegance. The bronze liquid metal silk gown below is completely rational, classical, elegant, and sexy. Wear it barefoot at home for a dinner party. Throw on sandals for a holiday in Mykonos. Heels and bold statement jewels will turn this into an unconventional yet rational black tie option. The fabric drapes particularly well and is so light, making it ideal for travel. Seasonless and ageless, this dress is forever, which is very rational indeed!

Halston liquid bronze classic evening gown on bias with natural drape, c. late 1970s. Modern size 4 to 8. Provenance Mrs. Norton Simon (Jennifer Jones) SOLD
