Great debut in respect of the visual and stylistic codes of the founder of the fashion house, Sonia Rykiel, who disappeared only two years ago and universally considered one of the greatest luxury knitwear gurus. She and her knitting with a fresh and irreverent appeal, an overwhelming mix of parisienne allure with a revolutionary punk vein, burst into the French fashion Haute Couture week with a Fall / Winter 2018 collection that is a hymn to women and freedom of always be themselves.
If closing the show is a bride that combines tradition, with a veil and white bodice, with a touch of pure divertissement thanks to the jeans worn with joy and lightness, aware that it is she who must see beautiful first and very well that consider her as her spouse who awaits her at the altar, it is clear that the philosophy of the whole collection is "woman first and only" that is, first the woman, with all her needs, dreams and desires. At the end of every trend, an anarchic spirit of freedom triumphs, symbolized by the great overcoats and worn in a totally comfortable and casual way. Gorgeous coats with wide lapels, hoods and capes are the great protagonists on soft-line pants. Between fringes, rouches, volants and sensual transparency, there is no shortage of homage to that luxury knitwear that Sonia Rykiel was universally one of the most most brilliant representatives of all time.
