70’s college girl at Sonia Rykiel

Paris: The catwalk was set with 50,000 books lining the shelves surrounding the runway as models walked out in head-to-toe velvet, striped furs, and over-the-knee socks. Collegiate 70’s girl with a modern flare captured the theme at Sonia Rykiel. Retro colour stories of cognac, black, and neutrals were offset by modern metallic silver leather and navy blue brushed mohair in oversized sweaters. Lengths were either mini or ankle length with column and A-line silhouettes. Jumpsuits made a major statement in deep velvet solids and patterns with cape attachments creating extra drama along with the plunging necklines. Jaclyn Jones
