Sonia Rykiel
Spring/Summer 2016 Pre-collection

Thursday, February 25, 2016
From designing pre-collections under Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton, Sonia Rykiel creative director Julie de Libran has now produced her first Pre-Spring collection for the Parisian fashion house.
Julie de Libran went out with a bang with this one, taking the Queen of Knits back to the glory days of Manhattan’s Studio 54. Fittingly, the Sonia Rykiel Pre-Spring 2016 collection was presented at Ladurée Soho on West Broadway. From the daytime hustle and bustle to the party at the nightclub, her collection of American classics reigned decadently. It was 70s optimism set in the 90s and now it has surfaced in present time.
 For Sonia Rykiel, stripes are always right and have been signature staples in their repertoire for many years now. This Pre-Spring 2016, the Sonia Rykiel stripes will make you look twice!

 The graphic effect is a hot trend this Spring and de Libran has used this to her advantage. Kaleidoscopic parrot prints, rainbow stripes, and multi-coloured sequins are hot highlights here. The maximalism does not stop there. Spanish flounces and thick panels of colour give the collection an extra bounce, making the overall offering an absolute textural delight. The bags too, have their fair share of this treatment, laden with intricate leather weaves and zesty colours.
 A little bit of glamour and a little bit of boho-chic grunge, de Libran is slowly defining her version of the Sonia Rykiel woman of today. A master layering artist, she dresses the girl who is out to have a good time – a really good time. And with daywear proving to be her strongest suit, the light of day is where you will find her at her best.
When you wear a Sonia Rykiel, know that there is an inner Parisian woman inside of you. Deep down, this woman shows immense confidence, her unabashed display of fashion in full glory on the outside.
