Tunic For Evening Ensemble

Halston, Designer (American, 1932-1990)


In 1976 it seemed that every fashionable woman was wearing Halston's asymmetrical neckline dress, according to a News York Times article from that year. A Halston signature, it was so popular that he interpreted it in many fabrics and a variety of styles.

This evening pajama has a two-piece bias-cut top. The straight-leg trousers are also cut on the bias, allowing the fabric to drape and flow when worn.
