Did you know that Coco Chanel was a passionate horseback rider?
Coco Chanel thought that sitting in the saddle in a dress, on the side with legs together, was too uncomfortable and limiting. She wanted to ride as wild and free as men! She designed riding trousers for women, so that they could ride in a normal position. This was unprecedented, some people thought it was even blatant, but there was no way back to the riding skirts.... Or what do you think?
Chanel is still in riding fashion. On the bottom right a vintage riding jacket.
