Sonia Rykiel

Sonia Rykiel opened her eponymous Left Bank boutique in 1968, selling the sought-after knitwear she first began crafting earlier in the decade. Those knits would include the iconic, shrunken “Poor Boy” sweater, which would grace the cover of ELLE and ultimately launch her career. The first designer to print words on her pullovers, Rykiel was also known for her inverted seams, and a love of stripes and bows. Now under the design direction of Louis Vuitton vet Julie de Libran, Sonia Rykiel has been synonymous with feminine polish and French cool since its beginnings. De Libran imbued her impressive debut with easy confidence, turning out covetable denim overalls, effortless pinstriped suiting, and those signature house stripes, reimagined as textural knits.

Sonia Rykiel: The woman who gave rise to Left Bank chic

Sonia Rykiel first opened her eponymous Left Bank boutique in 1968, selling the much-coveted knitwear she first began creating in the early 60’s. Those knits included the iconic, shrunken “Poor Boy” sweater which later graced the cover of ELLE and propelled her into the spotlight. Rykiel was the first designer to print words on her pullovers and was also known for her inverted seams and love of stripes and bows.

Sonia Rykiel: beyond fashion, beyond style, beyond trend

Since former Louis Vuitton studio director Julie de Libran became artistic director, Sonia Rykiel has become synonymous with feminine confidence and French chic. De Libran imbued her impressive debut with desirable, beautiful clothes – producing covetable denim pieces, pinstripe suits, and reinventing her signature stripes as textural knits. Experimenting with bold retro designs is Sonia Rykiel’s forte, as seen in her red leather bell-bottoms. Worn with Rykiel’s candy coloured knit jumpers and a pair of ankle boots, you’ll be looking quirky and chic from head to toe.
