Trends and styles of the contemporary world offer limitless options to dress in. However, this was not always the case for women.
Jumpsuits were originally created in 1919 as a functional garment for parachuters to jump from planes in. The boiler suit/overall/coverall is looser fitting and more utilitarian. Most likely because of its slimmer cut, the jumpsuit was the first of the three workwear garments to gain a fashionable following. In the 1930s, Elsa Schiaparelli began creating designer jumpsuits for elegant women. The sporty styles by the American designer Vera Maxwell in the mid-1940s may have found their way onto the street, but were still considered a novelty item.
While the designer jumpsuits worn by women during the Second World War were mainly utilitarian, it took another decade for the fashion to truly become popular for day and eveningwear. The late 1960s and 1970s were prime years for designer jumpsuits. Almost every designer had his or her own version of the jumpsuit, from Oscar de la Renta and Christian Dior to André Courrèges and Yves Saint Laurent. The 1970s designer jumpsuits were unisex, beloved by slim-hipped men and women. Cher and Elvis adopted the style as part of their stage personas and Studio 54 regulars danced to disco in Halston’s chic designs.
By 1980, the jumpsuit had become so popular that it was declared “the ballgown of the next century”. But the style may have reached saturation as it fell out of favour until the early 2000s. Then in 2002, Nicolas Ghesquière, who was at Balenciaga at the time, began experimenting with fabrics and patterns, sending an updated designer jumpsuits down the runway. And thus, the style was relaunched. Easy to wear, versatile and a little bit feisty, the jumpsuit has become a modern wardrobe staple.
