The original Jumpsuit, made in a jersey knit with a zipper, was designed by Fonssagrives -Tiel in 1964, as costume designers for Woody Allen’s first film, “What’s New Pussycat”. It was custom made for actress Ursula Andress to wear in the movie. In 1968, the jumpsuit became a best seller at the Mia- Vicky Boutique in Paris, which opened that May at 21 Rue Bonaparte. It was later sold to Henri Bendel NYC, first in a wool knit version, and then in leather. Barbra Streisand purchased the leather version in two colors, red and navy.
