Sonia Rykiel


Paris: Classic was the name of the game for Sonia Rykiel this season, but not without a bit of signature quirk. Tailored silhouettes — straight skirts, easy cropped trousers, double-breasted jackets, belted coats — had subtle 70s undertones, and the addition of platform footwear, wide headbands and decorative brass belt buckles added to the feel. Coziness was another key element, and appeared in the form of chunky ribbed knits (for both tops and bottoms) and plush, melon-hued shearling . There was a lovely French-ness to the collection, things had an effortlessly pulled-together feel, and airy chiffon sack dresses revealed simple underpinnings, achieving a demure femininity.  —Anna Jane Davis
