Meeting at the Galerie Papillon with Elsa Sahal who took part in our questions and answers session. A Paris-based ceramic sculptor, Elsa is known for her organic forms that challenge the representation of gender and sexuality.
AN ICON IN JUMPSUIT ?
Without hesitation, Uma Thurman, in Kill Bill. Her jumpsuit is such a statement piece!
LACE, TANK TOP OR NAKED UNDER YOUR JUMPSUIT ?
Silk in winter, lace in autumn, naked in summer!
YOUR FIRST JUMPSUIT ?
When I was twelve. My older sister gave me an orange denim jumpsuit that no longer fitted her. I never got rid of it.
HOW MANY JUMPSUITS DO YOU HAVE IN YOUR WARDROBE ?
At least ten, the jumpsuit is one of my favorite styles, I wear mine as much in summer as in winter. Denim, cotton, wool, blue, off white, all materials, all colors.
HOW DO YOU FEEL IN A JUMPSUIT?
Free and light, I love the fluidity of this garment.
IS IT EASY TO PEE IN A SUIT?
We make such a big deal of it, and honestly, in two seconds you’re all done. Not a big deal at all.
Elsa is wearing the Benjamin jumpsuit in grey flanel, available in size 34 to 42.
