Sportswear -Sports-

Until the 19th century, sport had mainly been used as training for war, and riding/hunting as a means of socializing within the upper class. However, in the 1880's, sport became a popular recreation among the working class due to the coming into fashion of bicycles. Males played sports wearing tailored jackets and trousers, whereas females wore trendy silhouette dresses while cycling, playing tennis/golf/cricket, and even while bathing in the sea, etc. Before long, sportswear allowing more movement appeared, such as bloomers, knickerbockers, polo shirts, and sneakers, etc. In the 1920s, sportswear made of jersey fabric was launched by haute couture designers such as Jean Patou and Elsa Schiaparelli. From the 1950s onwards, sportswear has continuously been adopted in youth fashion.
