#HolladayMaker:  Sonia Rykiel Forever

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?
