From the 80s, here's a great find, a Halston Silver Beaded & Sequined Top with batwing sleeves.
It's made of pure silk and is all hand embroidered with silver bugle beads and silver sequins in a geometric design.
The sleeve is actually elasticized about 5 1/2 inches up from the wrist to help it fall in a blouson fashion on the arm.
Label - Halston
2nd Label - Saks Fifth Avenue
3rd Label - located on the inside seam which reads SUZ - Hand Embroidery - Pure Silk - Made in India - Dry Clean only
It simply slides on over the head and does up with three hooks and eyes in the back.
Please rely on the following measurements for size, I would call this a small size as it has to glide over you body. Measurements are given in inches.
Bust - a bit difficult to measure correctly due to the batwing sleeves - 36
Waist - 36 Bottom - 36 Shoulders - 16 Sleeves - 22
It's in very good condition, there are two small rows of sequins missing at the top of the back and small row of beads a little lower than this.
One small beaded row near the upper arm on the right side. As the beadwork is so busy, it's not easy to notice. A good seamstress would be able
to repair this and this type of bead or sequin should not be difficult to find.
This would look wonderful over a pair of black silk pants. This Halston top would have turned a few heads at the disco...it can be your turn now!
