The Georgia Jumpsuit
First Things First.
June 21, 1913.
Georgia “Tiny” Broadwick becomes the first woman to jump from an airplane. She doesn’t wear a jumpsuit because, well, it will be six more years before Florentine artist Thayaht designs the first one, a T-shaped number.
Slow forward to Spring 2018. We offer our first jumpsuit.
Call us cautious, but we had to get it right.
When you take into account that jumpsuit design has danced back and forth between what aeronauts wore and what designers sent down the runway, you see we had our work cut out for us.
Jumpsuit—a utilitarian word for what we’ve translated into something so airy, so devastatingly chic, so shoulder-to-toe stunning. So lean, so floral.
Sometimes you get it right the first time.
