 The owner of Manhattan’s Rare Vintage store and gallery, a destination for vintage couture pieces, is planning a vintage Halston sale at her 24 West 57th Street location, beginning August 19th, reported The New York Times.

Juliana Cairone features some prime pieces in her collection, including a cashmere sweater dress with the high armholes and tight sleeves that were Halston signatures, a papery gold shirtdress and a strapless gold wrap-dress, priced from about $1,600 to $3,100.

“People don’t want to let go of the really good pieces,” she said.

But also included in the sale are 22 original sketches of Halston designs by Joe Eula. Each about the size of a postcard, they are from the collection of Chuck and Candy Pratts Price. Ms. Price, a Vogue editor, was once part of that glamorous Halston entourage, and herself a onetime window dresser at Bloomingdale’s (showstoppers for sure, just not as provocative).

Among the sketches, priced from $650 to $750, are ones that show shirtdresses and fur-trimmed capes on the Halston model Karen Bjornson, and a funny one depicting Liza Minnelli in a swimsuit with what appears to be a fan made of bananas.
