The jumpsuit with a hundred faces
Have you ever thought that a jumpsuit can be anything more than a denim outfit for a outdoor adventure or a fetish pice from latex? Well, the recent years in fashion taught us that this piece can be whatever you would like to be: an ideal choice for a cocktail, a delicate pice for day-to-day wear or even a stunning piece for the evening. Or, as the designer Carolina Ritzler said to me in Paris, “it transforms a mood into an attitude”. And I should take Carolina’s word for real. Because the jumpsuit is the DNA of her collection. And, as I learnt, the creations are 100% made in France, precisely made in Paris. (CLICK on the gallery above, for more pictures)

“Hyper-suggestive, the jumpsuit only reveals the ankles, wrists, neck and some pieces are low-necked which brings an unexpected touch of sensuality. It became a real seduction tool in an ongoing game between genres but it has not lost its practicability and comfortability”, said Carolina, while I was looking at the wonderful display of some short-sleeves pieces, white for brides and fur covered jumpsuits, in the Designers Apartment during Paris Fashion Week. I was pretty amazed by the winter jumpsuit imagined for a chic après-ski party: with detachable pieces (jacket, jumpsuit, fur lining). Who says that you cannot be sexy on the slopes?! “With sneakers, the jumpsuit is perfectly flattering your « cool » attitude. Nonetheless, it can also be worn with high heels, belted waist, buttons slightly open or zip down to reveal an elegant look.”
Carolina Ritz is not only creating jumpsuit. She chose to decline mini-collections per decade, including the ten basic and timeless pieces of each period. This allows her to revisit all cult pieces of the late twentieth century : the dress-coat from the 60s, the cape from the 70s, the perfecto from the 80s, the over size trench from the 90s…
As for me… I loved the smoking-like jumpsuit, black and silky, suitable for a elegant dinner and the military touch of the short pants one. (www.www.carolinaritz.com, main point of sale Le Bon Marche)
