Jumpsuits – Yesterday and Today

juThis year, the fashion world had shown jumpsuits again. In the Middle Ages, conjoint clothing (jumpsuits) was worn by the strolling performers, royal men of motley and alchemist-scientists. This outfit was comfortable while performing tricks and it became the prototype of body stockings. The alchemists also believed that the “solid” costume helps in regulating the internal energy, which in turn contributes the better development of the magical potential.

jumLevi Strauss (Levi Strauss & Co) has created a strong suit of the fabric for the gold miners, which permanently wiped his pants at his knees in 1853. His business began to produce jumpsuits for workers made of denim in the 1870s. They have gained popularity among farmers and cowboys.

At the beginning of the twentieth century, open jumpsuits were used as men beachwear.

During the First World War, jumpsuits were worn by women who worked in the UK weapons factories. Jumpsuits were used as the military uniform for the soldiers of the Commune during the Spanish Civil War.

Between the First and the Second World Wars, the jumpsuits become the clothing of aviators, swimmers, and athletes. During the Second World War, jumpsuits could be found in military outfits of most armies, including the German and Soviet ones.

In the 1960s jumpsuits appeared in the collections of Pierre Cardin and Yves Saint Laurent. But international recognition the jumpsuit had gained in the 1970s. In Paris, two brothers Gerard and Patrick Paryant had launched the brand, called NAF NAF in 1973. The name was chosen by the children’s nickname of Patrick – and perhaps not coincidentally the characters of the fairy tale “The Three Little Pigs,” at the illustrations piglets are dressed in jumpsuits on straps. Denim jumpsuits, which appeared in their collections, had become extremely popular. Now, every collection of the brand has at least one jumpsuit, which became a kind of NAF NAF mascot.

Such musicians added the popularity to jumpsuits: BoneyM, Arabesque, Abba, as well as Elvis Presley and David Bowie, who used them as stage costumes. Superheroes, starting with Batman, are also so fond of jumpsuits 🙂
