Halston had an incredible sense of color, and it is said that he never had enough colors to work with. Lilac, which was never popular, was made desirable because the shade he introduced was so elegant.

The cardigan jacket has a jewel neckline with long, slender sleeves. The mother-of-pearl buttons were dyed to match and a narrow self-tie belt is worn with it.

David W. Campbell, New York (Stan Weaver, New York); given to IMA 1985.
