Fueled by the desire to eliminate non-functional details, Halston’s minimalist approach to design led him to create clothing without the use of buttons, zippers, or pockets. Constructed of two layers of chiffon, this stunning evening dress closes with one hook on either side of the neckline. The floor-length columnar dress is complemented by a long, dramatic stole that significantly changes the visual effect of the ensemble depending on how it is worn.
