Summer Bicycle Ensemble, France, ca. 1899

antique bicycle dress 18961 antique summer bicycle dress 1899

Five-piece bicycle ensemble from France, ca. 1899. This unique ensemble consists of bicycle boots, women's trousers, a wide belt, a summer blouse and a hat. Probably worn in the summer. The ensemble is in overall good to very good condition. The straw hat with Paris label shows signs of age and wear at the brim of the hat. The boots also show evidence of wear while riding a bicycle. The blouse has a small stain on the back. It closes very intricately in the front with buttons. Two buttons are missing. A few stains. The brooch is not included.

Cycling was affordable only for middle-class social classes at the end of the 19th century. The first women on bikes came from wealthy families and it was one of the only ways to escape the restrictive customs and traditions. It was a new freedom that was possible for women through the bicycle.
