I was so sad to read of fashion designer Sonia Rykiel's passing. I always felt she was a somewhat underappreciated designer in the US - after discovering my first Rykiel (a striped sweater) at a second hand store. Though her flirty, fun mainstays were knits & stripes, she was no knitwit.
She sought to empower women through clothing - often photographing models with books - a message we totally endorse! We know her house will endure, but never be the same - our tribute a pictorial homage to her. With a few shoppable goodies at the bottom of the gallery. What's your fave piece?
I want that stripey swimsuit and inner tube!
