5 brands of wetsuits you absolutely must own

Combinaisons Automne Hivers

And a wetsuit that slims, one! Absolute star of the catwalks, the couture jumpsuit made a name for itself this fall at Balmain , Chanel , Salvatore Ferragamo , Alberta Ferretti , Elie Saab , Balmain or even Saint Laurent , borrowing insolently from the utility wardrobe of the mechanic and infusing it with an all-feminine sophistication. .

Some labels have made it their trademark, pushing monomania to the extreme or claiming a landmark avant-garde. A little tour of the houses that advocate the combination to put the style on the skin.

In the workwear category: Dickies

The DNA: since the 1920s, the Texan brand Dickies has been releasing the most resistant “Work Suits” for workers from its factories, going from a functional twill to denim and gradually adopted by the most influential fashionists. Kaia Gerber climbed into a Dickies jumpsuit as she stepped out of a Miu Miu show, when Booba was wearing her half-shirtless on the cover of M du Monde magazine. In short: a workwear icon, modern for a century.

Prices: from € 47 to € 89.

In the glam category: Ellozze

The DNA: to appropriate the suit of mechanic to make it a weapon of mass seduction, that was the ambition of the designer Carolina Ritzler with her eponymous brand. Since 2019, the stylist left the ship for the benefit of DG Narjisse Temmim , who then renamed the brand for a new start. Always made in France, the Ellozze jumpsuits assert themselves as the uniform of the powerful woman, to try in their brand new boutique on rue de Grenelle.

Prices: from € 210 to € 1,700 for leather models.

In the LA category: Overlover

The DNA: when a couple of Parisian fashion travelers in the Marais moved to Los Angeles to create their brand and experience the American Dream, it was inevitably towards the American piece par excellence that they turned. Since 2019, Overlover has been working on transposing the effortless French style onto light and resolutely stylish wetsuits, adapted to the great natural spaces of California and that we dream of taking in our suitcase for the next vacation.

Prices: from 350 € to 650 €.

In the working girl category: Septem

DNA: ex-lawyer in business law, Jessica Troisfontaine wanted the signature combinations of her brand Septem , created in 2018, to accompany the girlboss in her most crucial meetings, like an armor of the win. End-to-end, Septem even offers its own podcasts by inviting ever more inspiring personalities, from the founder of Oh My Cream to the comedian Tristan Lopin via the chef Amandine Chaignot .

Prices: from 230 € to 400 € for a white tuxedo model perfect for a chic civil wedding.
