tunic and pants

Halston, (American, 1932-1990)


Halston debuted his concept for “pajama dressing,” a contemporary version of the popular 1930s style, in his first collection of 1968. The approach was simple, the line uncomplicated, and the fabric interesting and unexpected. Pajama-like in fashion and encrusted with sequins, this two-piece ensemble consists of a tunic with fluted raglan sleeves and straight widelegged trousers. It allows the wearer to be comfortable while promoting an air of chic sophistication.

Mrs. Gerald L. (Geraldine) Herzfeld, (d. 2009) New York; through (Stan Weaver, New York); given to Indianapolis Museum of Art (June 20, 1985)
