The History Of Jumpsuits (Part 2)
Posted on 30 May 2017
A few years after the TUTA was created, an artist couple named Alexander Rodchenko and Varvara Stepanova attempted a similar endeavor with the jumpsuit, this time in Russia. Their version of the garment was called the Varst, and was crafted with very much the same intentions that Thayat originally had, as a kind of uniform for the proletariat revolutionary. While the Varst sis not backfire in the same way as the TUTA, it was simply a case of being at the wrong place at the wrong time. Early Soviet Russia was not exactly a leader in fashion trends, so the design failed to take off at all.
