    That was certainly interesting! I especially liked the fancy gown with the red tennis shoes and red helmet!

    Kind of reminds me of when Irish dance shoes showed up in a high level fashion show.

    The bikes are just a fashion prop. The clothes are pretty, but really, have nothing to do with bikes, not even for cyclists who wear dresses on their bikes.

    Some beautiful clothes by some great designers….maybe not so much for riding though …..but I’d definitely happily ride in the armani with puma leggings…. and have in similar skirts/leggings on my commuter. His spring collection had some beautiful skirts in it.

    That was my thought as well. I thought "chain guard or not, that skirt is going into at least the wheel if not the gears" and then I thought the girl in the corset couldn't get a deep enough breath to ride at all. I jokingly told my friend that you'd never see men dressing up in clothing not matching their activities...but then again I guess there aren't nearly as many men's fashion magazines either.

    Notwithstanding the impracticality, the red flowy dress was quite dramatic on the bike!

    Oh yes, I do realize that! No way anyone would subject those pricey threads to the rigors and grease of a bicycle. :-)
