The red jumpsuit has always been there, since the first screenplay of La Casa de Papel. “We are always looking for something unique. It is necessary, in some way, to have a differential, an identity and DNA of its own”, he says.  Álex Pina, creator of the series. The decision was to reduce the primary colors and highlight red among all the others. “That's why all our thieves and hostages should wear uniforms, so that the red jumpsuit becomes a key part of the look of the series”, says director Jesús Colmenar.

Over the five seasons, more than 600 red jumpsuits were used and, despite this uniformity, the La Casa de Papel are far from tiring. “It is very enriching to produce the costumes of La Casa de Papel  because each character is very different from the other. It has been a very rewarding challenge to wear, with the iconic red jumpsuit, each character individually and then as a group”, he says. Carlos Diez, responsible for the costumes of the series.
