Apple’s big product unveiling on Tuesday read more like a big Hollywood award show than a tech event, complete with an iconic fashion moment to boot.
But it wasn’t attendees like Reese Witherspoon or Jennifer Aniston who stole the show ― it was the brand’s director of design for applications, Wyatt Mitchell.
In an industry rife with debate over fashion’s place and an almost purposeful lack of style, Mitchell’s white utilitarian jumpsuit and Off-White Converse were a refreshing ― and trendy ― change of pace.

Twitter users hopped on the news faster than they would get in line for the newest iPhone.
Matthew Panzarino, TechCrunch’s editor in chief, called the jumpsuit“absolutely fire,” and he was hardly alone in that sentiment.
