The Inspiration: European Heritage.
Emerging out of World War II, a time of despair and pain, cycling brought life and hope to the world. Fans around the globe watched as these cycling gods raced through the landscape of Europe–Bartali, Coppi and Van Steenbergen setting records and making wins. Women also began to make strides in this male-dominated sport. In 1958, women competed for the first time in the Road World Championship held in Reims, France. Female cyclist Elsy Jacobs took home first place and paved the way for other women to leave their mark.
This collection draws historical influences and fashion trends together in a presentation of rhythmic prints, vintage couture florals, and modern movement with dynamic color blocking and new silhouettes.
