50's Inspired Jumpsuit - My New Favourite Thing

RO: De curand m-am indragostit de hainele de inspiratie vintage, mai ales de cele care imi amintesc de anii 50-60, iar obiectul vestimentar care, momentan, cu siguranta mi-a atras atentia este salopeta!

EN: I've recently fell in love with vintage- inspired clothes, especially the ones that remind me of the 50s and 60s, and the one piece of clothing that definitely caught my attention is the overall.

RO: Initial salopetele au fost inventate la inceputul secolului XX, in SUA, ca imbracaminte pentru copii, insa ulterior au fost adaptate si pentru adultii care lucrau in fabrici sau pe santiere, fiind comode si practice. De abia in anii 50-60 au inceput sa fie purtate in mod uzual pe strada, dar si pe scene, in industria muzicii, Elvis Presley fiind unul dintre fanii acestor piese vestimentare. Desi salopetele au avut suisuri si coborasuri in istoria modei, in 2017 revin in forta, chiar si in moda masculina, cu un nou concept numit: romphim.

EN: Overalls were initially invented in the USA at the beginning of the 20th century as children's clothing, but were soon adapted for adults working in factories or on construction sites, as they were comfortable and practical. Only in the 50s and 60s did overalls start to be worn everyday on the street and on stage in the music industry - Elvis Presley being one of the fans of this article of clothing. Although overalls have had ups and downs in the fashion industry, they are coming back in force in 2017 even in the male department, with a new concept called romphim.

RO: In ceea ce priveste propunerea mea, am optat pentru o salopeta evazata cu un print dungat pijama-like, peste un tricou simplu alb pentru ca accentul sa cada pe detaliul vintage al topului salopetei. Pentru accesorii am contrastat culorile reci alte imbracamintii cu o pereche rosie de pantofi cu talpa joasa si varful ascutit (o alta obsesie de-a mea primavara aceasta), o pereche de ochelari de soare aurii cat-eye, de inspiratie cincizecista, si un rucsac rose-gold. Topul salopetei imi aduce aminte de costumele de baie vintage de la mijlocul secolului trecut si cred ca auriul m-a atras atat de mult in tinuta aceasta pentru ca l-am asociat cu vara, soarele si bronzul, integrandu-l perfect in imaginea din capul meu. De abia astept sa vina vara!

EN: As for my suggestion, I opted for a flare overall with a pijama-like striped print over a simple white T-shirt in order for the attention to fall on the 50s-inspired detail of the top. For the accessories I've contrasted the cold colours of the clothing with a red pair of flat pointed shoes (another one of my obsessions this spring), a pair of golden sunglasses, also vintage-inspired, and a rose-gold backpack. The top of the overall reminds me of vintage bathing suits from the mid-20th century and I think I was so attracted by the gold in this outfit because I associate it with summer, sun and tan, perfectly integrating it into the image in my head. Ah... I can't wait for summer to come!

I haven't been everywhere, but it's on my list!
