Large pieces of fleece are certainly having their moment. While at Perez Hilton‘s birthday party Saturday night, I noticed a few vagabonds running around in onesies. Assuming it was part of some hipster movement, I didn’t blink twice when a gentleman wrap in an American Flag design ran by me. Nor did I bother to tilt my head in an attempt to read what Jason Wahler‘s jammies said (“ONEPIECE”).
Well, did I miss the boat. Earlier today my sister came across a Boston.com article highlighting the recent trend and asked me which pattern suited her best. At a starting price point of $187, I told her she’s better off buying a Kindle. In the article, the writer explored the origins and hype of the OnePiece, started in 2007 by a few Norwegian twenty-somethings looking for comfy post-hangover wear. London’s Evening Standard was quoted as calling the OnePiece “The winter trend of 2010″ and contestants on the U.K.’s X Factor sported them during a photo shoot last August.
So what do you say, America? Are you ready to replace your Snuggie with the OnePiece?
