Sheer Brilliance

It can be very easy to be spoiled by beautifully crafted clothing. Once you see and touch and wear a dress that has been created by a talented designer with skilled dressmakers in his studio, it is not so easy to go back to poorly made, extremely expensive ready to wear. This is one of the reasons that we love vintage and that the price is almost always better for a vintage couture piece then for the ready to wear in stores right now.

What we love about Halston is the feeling of calmness to his clothing. The clothes are simple and beautiful. Pieces were made from the very best fabrics. This sheer bias cut flowing coat is a signature look for Halston. Over day wear and evening wear he liked to add a soft cardigan, a beaded jacket, a chiffon “coat”. We would wear this over the simplest column dress or Olivier Theyskens’ Nina Ricci beaded catsuit or Stella McCartneys lace jumpsuit would be perfect too. Or our 1970’s lace catsuit from Norma Kamali. Or over nothing at all, but that is a different story...
