Halston's interpretation of the classic kaftan became one of his most successful creations. His elegant caftans embodied comfort, luxury, and glamour all at the same time.

This kaftan is quintessentially Halston: dressy casual and classically modern. Based on the simple style of the T-shirt, it was tie-dyed in a custom pattern that evokes Minimalism.

David Campbell, New York (Stan Weaver, New York); given to IMA December 10, 1985.
