Sonia Rykiel showed that knitwear can be sexy, interchangeable, playful, feminine and desirable,” says Julie de Libran the Creative Director of the iconic Parisian brand. “We have almost 50 years of archive that I did not want to be lost,” says de Libran of the treasure trove of designs that Rykiel first made her name with in Paris in the 1970s.

 

Rykiel passed last year but her impact as one of the first successful female ready to wear designers; an artistic free spirit and a woman with a lust for life resonates in the now and the future. “She was an icon, not only in terms of creativity, but because she liberated women, dressed them with strength, so that they would be more confidant and active,” says Libran who first appreciated the power of stylistic ease via her Rykiel and Saint Laurent dressed mother.

 
True to the company’s roots, the Rykiel Forever collection is made in the same Vicenza Italy based specialist factory that Sonia began working with many years ago. The capsule in cotton, wool and cashmere is an utterly desirable must-have for this season and all those to come. Find stripy tops in fuchsia and black; cardigans that you can throw back over your shoulders on straps; the ideal fluted knit skirt and sweaters and dresses emblazoned with ‘Forever’ and ‘Saint Germain.’ “Being one step ahead of a fashion trend is not so important to me,” once said Sonia Rykiel, “What matters is to always forge ahead.” Vive la Mode!
