Fashion and automotive are two sectors of luxury that for a long time have been courted, but it was 2020 that made them meet definitively, with a series of collaborations between car manufacturers and streetwear brands that testifies to how fruitful and profound the dialogue between them is. A dialogue that, however, is set against the background of one of the most uncertain and complex years of the new millennium, which has brought the creative world to unprecedented challenges. The result has been the rediscovery of the community and the local creative habitat – especially for an industrial capital such as Milan, where city life is closely dependent on the milieu of creatives and artists operating within it. For this reason, Garage Italia together with nss magazine presented the project The Jumpsuit of Milan, which wants not only to give a new voice to the city's creatives but also to demonstrate the successes of cross-sectorality through the combination of the world of clothes with that of engines.

Symbol of the entire project, starting from the name, is the jumpsuit. A historic pillar of workwear, an inevitable uniform of endless workshops and professional racing stables, the jumpsuit became in 2020 one of the most transversal symbols of that phase of cultural re-imagination that fashion is experiencing. An originally humble garment that has been rediscovered by designers and the streetwear world and that 12 artists based in Milan will reinterpret and customize, using it as a pure expressive channel.

Its genderless garment nature, its practicality and the infinite possibilities enclosed in the processes of artistic customization, make jumpsuit the very symbol of inclusivity and openness not only of post-lockdown fashion, but of post-lockdown Milan. This inclusivity necessarily passes from personal creativity, from the skill of artisans and artists who work in their ateliers scattered throughout the city. Each garment that will be produced during the project is a unique piece of its kind and will be made with completely artisanal processes.

The presentation of the various jumpsuits will be organized in drops, the first of which involves AJPJ, Solomostry, Ignorance1 and Sangi, each of which will bring to The Jumpsuit of Milan its different sensitivity. AJPJ (acronym for Alberto Panocchi and Joelle Pomioli), for example, will focus on the upcycling side of the customization process; street artist Solomostry, who in his 10-year career has brought his games of exasperated and broken geometries from the walls of Milan to hoodies, installations and design objects, will sign another of the one-off pieces; Ignorance1 will infuse jumpsuit with its 90s raver aesthetic while Sangi, digital curator and brand consultant, will leverage her ocean-minded knowledge of the sneaker world to bring the same hybrid of aesthetics and functionality to his jumpsuit.
