Milanese Chic

I’ve yet to be bitten by the jumpsuit bug, but Milan-based architect Barbara Ghidoni of the firm Storage Associati looks pretty fab in this one. Her tank watch and single bangle are chic, too.

  • Very chic, but there is the enduring problem of the near complete disrobe in order to perform certain bodily functions.

  • Not for one second do I think these “surgical scrubs” look chic or elegant! Barbara is gorgeous and would look great in a potato sack – but “no way” on the jump suit.

  • Love jumpsuits and she looks fantastic. But there is that problem that Claire speaks of…..

  • I recently thought of this issue. I contemplated buying a dressy jumpsuit to attend a wedding and the realities of the ladies room hit me just in time. Do people really wear jumpsuits for dress and if they do, how do they protect the garment from filthy floors, etc of public rest rooms? Major stumbling block.

  • In the context that she an architect visiting a work site ( as in the photo) I rather think it’s a great fashion choice!

  • Preston- this is a stunning jumpsuit- just the right amount of loucheness. Do we happen to know who is the designer?

  • I agree with MD! Would love to know how to find that jumpsuit! Thanks, Preston.

  • Pretty sure this is an old Isabel Marant jumpsuit from a year ago. I have it in dark grey. She makes the absolute best jumpsuits.

  • I was a big jumpsuit fan… back in the day. They’re intriguing, but I still remember trying to manage to shrug out of a jumpsuit in a nightclub ladies room when The Squeeze were a thing.

  • OK – here is what you do in the ladies room. You take the jumpsuit down and hold it over your arm, sit down and just keep it over your arm so it doesn’t hit the floor. It’s a bit of a pain, but it doesn’t have to hit the floor ever.

  • well, the jumpsuit is fantastic, but with those shoes….beyond!

  • I’m with Ruth on this – For decades, this style has typically been a worn as a smart and practical solution for anyone doing potentially messy work (my artist friend wears one while painting at her easel). So in my mind, ‘jumpsuits’ remind me of work more than pleasure, even when done in lovely fabric. For me, what I wear is as much about how I feel as how I look and the context. For practical reasons alone, I would find it a bit of a hassle to wear.

  • Love this. I’m a big jumpsuit fan – once you start wearing them you can’t stop.
