Designer Spotlight: Sonia Rykiel

I like going through the collections of my favourite designers every now and then. Just going back to good basics keeps a fresh perspective on things. Today, it's Sonia Rykiel. She invented inside-out stitching. The pullover sweater is her signature item. Opening her first boutique 40 years ago, she adapted the wardrobe to a woman's particular style. How could you not love her?

The Fall 08 collection is the brainchild of the trio formed by Sonia herself, her daughter Nathalie and Gabrielle Greiss, the creative director. The show brought on volumes, sweaters (of course) and a trapeze-shaped silhouette.


All these make perfect autumn looks. Totally lovable. Can't wait for the SS 09 collection. And guess what? The show is in Paris, on the... 1st of October! Oh goodie-good.

P.S. I need a tiara like that! I can't find one that looks decent enough and that is not completely covered in all sorts of glittery stuff. Haha-heh!

Sweet treats,
