Sonia Rykiel, remaining the «queen of knitwear», continues to draw the eyes of millions of people.
Her collections were pure creation: the fashion designer praised the women's rights to freedom
and sexuality and promoted a progressive for the time style making the accent on sensuality and
Rykiel's fashion reflected the reality of the second half of the twentieth century, she
made her own history of arts, no less important than any other. Today, in the twenty-first century,
the SONIA RYKIEL brand run by artistic director Julie de Libran is experiencing its rebirth. The
brand's collections are versatile but extremely romantic and feminine flavored with that very
French flair which was in many ways invented by Sonia Rykiel. There are flowing dresses, jackets
with clean sharp lines, cut-off shorts, silk shirts, sexy swim-wear, opalescent fabrics, thinner and
more elegant knitwear, wide range of colors and the signature Rykiel strip.
