The History Of Jumpsuits
Posted on 26 May 2017
Just before the roaring 20's, bigger, more fashionable things began happening for the jumpsuit. In 1919, the Italian artist Thayat crafted his own version of the jumpsuit. His original intention was for the garment to be a true everyday "basic" piece, something simple that would be easy to make and wear. The simple cotton look dubbed the *TUTA*, was created as an anti-bourgeois statement, with the intended customer being the working class. This ultimately backfired, Thayat's preferred customer based showed little interest in the TUTA. To add insult to injury, it became popular with Florentine upper class society as a highly fashionable look. The outcome was the exact opposite of everything Thayat had hoped to accomplish with his creation.
