“25 Rue St Germain,” “Je T’Aime” and “Star” these are some of the spirited words on Sonia Rykiel’s new Manifesto capsule collection of sweaters that creative director Julie De Libran has curated to celebrate the brands’ 50th year.

 

The late Sonia Rykiel had a passion for books and words (so much so that she assembled her own library in the St Germain flagship that de Libran has since had restored) and penned several books and essays.

 

 

Her most adored was a quirky lexicon of style called “Dictionnaire Déglingué,” which translates as ‘collapsed dictionary,’ and within it, the author assembled her favourite poems, aphorisms and words in an eccentric, sensual riff on style, life and love. She likens a dictionary to Sauternes (the sweet French pudding wine) and describes it as, “a sublime bottle to drink while looking into the eyes without leaving.”

 

 

One can now imbibe the seductive power of Sauternes on an olive green sweater. The words bounce of the bold graphic knits with good humour, some making more ‘sense’ than others. But then, a little ‘word play’ is one of life’s true pleasures.
