Halston designs share a number of key elements. All perfectly reflected in this dress. Each design is constructed with a minimum of cut pieces and this two-seamed assemblage allows for the streamlines silhouette for which Halston is so famous. He eliminated inner structures and lining to further enhance the clean lines. Halston understood better than anyone else luxury, glamour, simplicity and fit. He represented all that was modern and pure and American. This is Halston interpretation of the classic caftan, very luxurios and comfortable at the same time. The two tone raspberry and purple its also very Halston, his colors were like out of a Crayola crayon box, these colors are not shaded or pastels or iridiscent - these colors are very true and very American. This is the perfect dress for a number of occasions, from a beach wedding with gold flat sandals and a head scarf, to red carpet in high heels, hair in a soft chignon and a statement necklace. You will be undeniably chic and a true Halstonette!
