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.
