What People in 1902 Thought "Women of the Future" Would Look Like
In 1902, French artist Albert Bergeret imagined what future female professionals might look like for a series of trading cards called “Women of the Future.” The often-impractical and scanty sartorial choices make clear that the collection was intended to be more alluring than aspirational. Still, the models sport some incredible outfits, hamming it up as doctors, lawyers, soldiers, and jockeys. Although none of these getups of the future ever came to fruition, they’d make for good Halloween costumes if you’re not one to get hung up on details like place, time, or reality.
