Disco Darling: 70's Halston Jumpsuit
As all the fashion folk out there wait in anticipation for Marios Swchab's debut at the once highly influential American label Halston for Fall/Winter 2010, we at VagaBondnyc have unearthed one of the house's great legacies with this fluid tone on tone disco era vertical striped jumpsuit. And with the in-house design team's recent Spring/Summer 2010 outing(shot by our good friend/collaborator Garen Barsegian) featuring a somewhat disappointing(read banal) take on the of-the-moment jumpsuit in a similar glossy hue, we couldn't help but cherish ours even more.
Our's of course is from the ultra-luxe yet brash disco era of the 1970's and is composed out of a fluid, ultra-femme tone on tone vertical striped silk which ultimately elongates the body while it's sheer abbreviated kimono sleeves give the harshness of a jumpsuit a romantic, voluminous silhouette. It also comes with a smart 96" long sheer chiffon sash that gives this piece loads of extra styling options.
