Sonia Rykiel


PARIS…Sonia Rykiel is a beloved national treasure in France, enjoying nothing but good will from the fashion industry and consumers alike. This adoration was measurably demonstrated during her S/S 09 presentation, which doubled as the 40th Anniversary party for the brand, as fellow designers gathered for the show and surprise presentation of tribute ensembles they crafted in her honor. Rykiel’s own clothes for the season were typically upbeat and on-trend for juniors, encompassing everything from sequin berets, rainbow minis, classic horizontal stripes, and paper bag waist trousers. With plenty of slouchy pockets and light volume, even the dressier pieces were kept casual and easy to wear. This market will want to fill their closets with Sonia Rykiel next spring.
