Paris: This season marks Julie de Libran’s first at the helm of Sonia Rykiel. With prior experience at Prada and Louis Vuitton under the direction of Marc Jacobs she is well prepared to take the French fashion house into its next phase. For her debut, de Libran looked back to Rykiel’s inception, incorporating the signature stripe and of course, knitwear. The lineup opened with boxy suits and sets bathed in whites with stripes which moved into a utilitarian story, and transitioned into flirty ensembles, replete with fur, more suitable for a night out. A plethora of cropped all-in-ones with streamlined silhouettes in various applications were a standout.  –Deirdre Pérez
