Fashion Week Paris - Sonia Rykiel

Paris - 29.9.2014

Since Sonia Rykiel retired in 2009 the house has shuffled through a couple of designers whose work has never reached up to her legacy. With Julie De Libran comes a designer whose connections to the Rykiel brand are deep: "My mother wore it a lot, so this felt like coming back to her closet a little bit," said de Libran. "There are so many codes, and there's such a nice heritage, which I'm lucky to be able to take from and reinvent, to kind of close the archive, and just go by my selective memory." Keeping that in mind, De Libran gave the house's signature stripes different faces from romantic to casual and from girlie to glam.
