Sonia Rykiel Fall 2015

by Dena Silver

Featuring an all-star cast of bold faces, including Georgia May and Elizabeth Jagger, plus Ella RichardsAnna Ewers and Gigi Hadid, the Sonia Rykiel show also marked Lottie Moss’ catwalk debut. Notable names aside, artistic director Julie de Libran‘s sophomore collection proved its ’70s influence through a whole lot of stripes. The brand’s signature was banded across sparkly knits (another staple of the maison) as well as lavish ankle-length fur coats, sequin dresses, and suits. The theme also factored in plenty of shearling coats, including a wool peacoat with the fuzzy detail, keyhole necklines, and more than one shade of camel. Velvet had a big moment here, appearing in quite a few colors and textures, the impressive of which was a slinky navy jumpsuit with a plunging neckline. All housed in the original Sonia Rykiel boutique, which was decorated with thousands of books, de Libran recreated the scene of a Left Bank literary cafe.
