1978 Silk Chiffon One Shoulder Gown
Rare and stunning 1978 Halston cherry red silk chiffon one-shouldered gown. This style appeared in many of Halston's collections. He was especially interested in the bias-spiraling of fabric over the body. Although this gown is modest in its coverage of the body, its sliced neckline and tentative anchoring on the right shoulder convey a potential for nudity and allude to the classical Greek fashion of fixing the himation, or cloak, at the shoulder to drape in a fall at one side.
