Modern … still
a garment of liberating properties
a quick robe and disrobe
a perfect ‘one-sie’ dress alternative
a fashion statement maker
Designed by Italian artist and designer Ernesto Michahelles,
who styled himself THAYTH,
and appearing on the fashion stage in 1920
the jumpsuit was considered distinct, modern,
innovative and avant garde.
THAYTH, a proponent of the Italian futurist movement
regarded his creation as a modern garment
for everyday-wear, for everyone
a fashion inventive.
He called it La Tuta, the T-shaped tracksuit.

La Tuta launched the jumpsuit trend
which continues to be celebrated today.
Truly an iconic piece.
