Since the 1970s, Sonia Rykiel embodies an emancipated and iconoclastic woman. She will always be known as one of the main figures of Parisian ready-to-wear.
Throughout the collections, Sonia Rykiel has been able to turn fashion upside down and create clothes that match with a real lifestyle. Shaking up institutions, not paying attention to codes and established rules, she has always took women’s part. This perhaps explains the modernity, the longevity, the influence, the posterity of her vision and its unique journey.
