The G-Star RAW jumpsuit: A one piece wonder

From utilitarian to disco-inspired, the versatile jumpsuit is an evergreen fashion staple that keeps evolving. Tall, short, petite, curvy, there are no limits—as the saying goes, ‘if you don’t jump, you don’t fly’. Times are changing, but the jumpsuit is here to stay.

Jumping back in time

From worker’s uniform to fashion favourite, the jumpsuit has a rich history. The original jumpsuit was a functional garment worn by parachuters at the beginning of the 20th century. For decades the one-piece had a solely functional image as it popped up in factories, the army or on racetracks. After WWII the world changed. Famous pop artists like Elvis Presley, but also women like Jackie Kennedy and Audrey Hepburn embraced the garment. Retaining functionality while injecting fashion led to the immense popularity of the jumpsuit. The women's liberation movement gave the jumpsuit a bounce into the activist world. Since the 80s, the one-piece has been reinvented by many different designers providing more accessible options. Today the jumpsuit is more relevant than ever, and is suited for every occasion.

G-Star RAW’s new range of jumpsuits for women is inspired by workwear, like permanent-press uniforms and vintage Swedish army shirts. By adjusting the snap buttons or the waist belt you enhance the feminine form and shape the casual fit of the jumpsuits.
