evening ensemble

Halston, Designer (American, 1932-1990)


Halston revamped the 1930s pajama into cocktail and evening attire by making them out of sheer fabrics.

The Chinese-style pajama trousers are paired with a straight-grain cardigan jacket.

David W. Campbell, New York (Stan Weaver, New York); given to IMA December 2, 1986.
