What The Attire Symbolize?

The group of thieves of this hugely popular Spanish crime-drama has consistently chosen the red jumpsuit and Salvador Dali masks for every robbery. You will be surprised that this is not just a disguise. The attire actually serves as a physical symbol for the show’s theme.

The beliefs of the thieves in La Casa de Papel always go against the modern capitalist society. This is something that matched with the focus attached to much of Spanish artist Salvador Dali’s work. His most of the work was done during Zurich’s Dad movement, and the arts have shown rejection to the modern capitalist society, says The Tate. Hence, it proved that there is an alignment in the beliefs of the artist and the robbers.

On the other hand, the jumpsuit of the criminals is red because of what it represents and has represented throughout history. As per Google Arts & Culture Center, the color widely symbolizes liberties and freedoms, the idea which also goes along with the Money Heist’s gang. The symbolism is given to the color after several revolutions around the world. The French revolution in the 1700s and Cuba in the 1950s are some that can be enlisted.
