Chill out wear

Helsinki, 8 degrees

My jaw almost dropped  a couple of days ago when I saw a group of ten friends on Helsinki's main shopping street dressed in no other than Sweden's biggest current fashion trend - the one piece that is! An interesting fact is to notice that Swedish fashion trends reach even Helsinki over night since we e.g. have so many Swedish tourists in Helsinki on a daily basis.

Funny enough, only two days ago, online game company Paf released an article where it was said that this year's top Christmas gift in Sweden will be this kind of jumpsuit which I call  a "cosy outfit". I think they look awfully cosy indeed, but I must say that they did not fit in in the Helsinkian streetview!!! I would definately keep them at home, and not go shopping in them! What do you think?


Of course these jumpsuits got their start one early Sunday morning in 2007, when Henrik, Knut and Thomas, three Norwegians in their twenties, fantasized about the ultimate chill-out wear that would be perfect for a lazy day at home.

Most of my Swedish friends have also been vividly discussing this fashion trend on Facebook, it actually seems that all Sweeds want them! The two leading companies making them are Onepiece and Ziperall. These jumpsuits that suit all moments according to Sweeds cost up to 200€, so we are talking about true fashion items. Where do you stand on this point?

It seems that even celebrities like Kate Moss, Paris Hilton, David Beckham, Jude Law and Sadie Frost have the jumpsuit.

According to fashion blog Yummy we are getting out first jumpsuit store in Helsinki on the 2nd of December. I guess after that these jumpsuits will be an everyday sight in Helsinki!
