This three-piece ensemble was inspired by the orientalist styles of the early 1900s. The halter-top dress is wrapped and tied to the side, creating a pointed, asymmetrical hem. The accompanying top has long puffed sleeves and ties on the hips. A turban completes the ensemble.

The metallic yarns, dyed in subtle shades of silver, lavender and blue-green, create a scintillating effect when the outfit is worn.
