So no, we were definitely not JK-ing about onesies for men, even though the odds—reality versus fashion fantasy—were kind of slim. And while we've documented tons of ladies popping their playsuit collars, waltzing around in florals and fire-colored jumpers (like the Just Cavalli high-waisted silk joint that passed through our office last week, a fashion plaything that will be in our minds for the rest of the summer) there haven't been too many dudes brave enough to shun the grumpy-grandpa/sweaty-mechanic/space-roaming-freedom-fighter associations, and put their best man sandal forward in a jumpsuit. It makes sense that we spotted out sartorially empowered friend and his awesome blue silk parachute one-piece at a Bless (cult German Avant Gardist designers) sample sale, a fashion happening that honestly only just about qualifies as the real world.
