1970s Halston Hand Dyed Ombre Silk Chiffon Caftan Dress


An absolutely fabulous hand painted caftan style dress by Halston in a delicate sheer dyed silk chiffon in tones of olive green, pale gold, peachy pink, and blue. The maxi length caftan features a high round neck and rectangular cut sleeves that are slit at the bottom, creating the most incredible movement. It has an accompanying long fitted creme slip dress with slits at the sides. This caftan has a perfect sheer and airy movement that is instantly flattering to all body types! 

The caftan is one of the designs Halston is most famous for, with institutions such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art holding similar pieces in their permanent collection. This is a rare opportunity to own a piece of American fashion history!

Condition: The caftan has some discoloration and marks from age, but is absolutely wearable the way it is. Any imperfections are lost in the draping of the fabric. There are spots of discoloration on the slip, but they are not noticeable when worn under the kaftan. We have not attempted to remove the discoloration due to the fragility of the fabric. Photos of imperfections are available upon request.
