The onesie may not be something you would normally associate with the great American couturier James Galanos, but only Mr. Galanos can take the finest crepe de chine in a fab swirl print, fold over the short sleeves to reveal a black silk satin lining, and throw in some black jet bead buttons to make this romper look after-five acceptable. If you have fab legs (hello Chloe Sevigny) this will only enhance the beauty of fine pair of gams. It's pretty much the chicest short pantsuit you will ever see and probably the only one we have ever sold at Decades. I've noticed a lot of onesies on the runways for the past seasons, so clearly an enfant terrible moment is happening on many a leggy fashionista.
