pants for evening ensemble

Halston, Designer (American, 1932-1990)


This long-sleeve cardigan jacket is worn with a silk chiffon double-layer halter top tied into a bow at the front. Straight-leg trousers, gathered into a wide elastic waistband, complete the ensemble.

The custom-designed beadwork features a swirling pattern, which is used throughout the main field. The bottom parts of the jacket and trousers are embroidered in a wave pattern.
