Sonia Rykiel Tribute - her legacy

It is always with great sadness when I write a piece about a designer who has passed away. More so because I struggle sometimes to keep up with the new and upcoming designers, whereas those 'old school' ones have been household names for so long, you would recognise their style instantly, anywhere.

So it is the great Sonia Rykiel on the blog today - her colourful stripes could not be mistaken for someone else's. Ever. With designs for real women (you know, curves and all) Rykiel was as inspirational as she was a visionary. And her playful and colourful designs have inspired generations of designers and the world of interiors. Move aside black and white. Hot pink is coming!
