na. Satirical comment on extreme women's fashion

Satirical comment on extreme women's fashion, in this case sun bonnets popular in the early 19th century. Here, the exaggerated is exagerrated even more as gentlemen do their best to communicate with the ladies. The caption to this picture which appeared in Le Supreme Bon Ton, number 16 reads Les Invisibles en tete-a-tete or the invisible, face to face. Anonymous artist, circa 1815

EDITORS COMMENTS
This vintage print takes us back to the early 19th century, where extreme women's fashion was satirically portrayed through sun bonnets. The anonymous artist skillfully exaggerates these already exaggerated accessories, as gentlemen struggle to communicate with the ladies hidden beneath their long and elaborate headwear. Aptly titled "Les Invisibles en tete-a-tete" or "The Invisible, Face to Face, " this illustration appeared in Le Supreme Bon Ton, number 16. The image offers a humorous commentary on the absurdity of women's fashion during that period. Sun bonnets were not only fashionable but also served practical purposes such as protecting delicate complexions from the harsh rays of the sun. However, this artwork pushes those boundaries even further by emphasizing how these bonnets obscured women's faces entirely. With its vibrant colors and intricate details, this archival piece serves as a fascinating window into history. It captures an era when societal norms dictated extravagant attire for women while simultaneously highlighting the challenges faced by men attempting to engage in meaningful conversation amidst such sartorial extravagance. Whether displayed as wall art or used for decorative purposes, this enchanting engraving adds a touch of whimsy and historical charm to any space. Its portrayal of French satire invites viewers to reflect on both past fashion trends and society's evolving perspectives on gender roles throughout history.
