The dress, belt and jacket of this ensemble are embroidered with bugle and pearl beads in a hexagonal pattern. Halston was particularly fond of this pattern and incorporated it in many of his creations.
The simple sleeveless dress with a deep scope neckline is worn with a superbly constructed jacket. The jacket is made from a single piece of fabric in a circular format with batwing sleeves. The sleeves circle the front and are gathered at the shoulders.
