Sonia by Sonia Rykiel Resort 2016
May 6, 2015 - fall Denim
Sticking to a same pattern codes and group of their final tumble winter, a line is incarnated again by illustrator/model Langley Fox.
Sticking to a same pattern codes for review 2016 as they did for tumble 2015, a Sonia by Sonia Rykiel team, operative underneath Julie de Libran’s artistic direction, again presented a collection styled on illustrator/model Langley Fox (Mariel Hemingway’s daughter) posing in a Left Bank café for photographer Sonia Sieff (Seventies photographer Jeanloup Sieff’s daughter).
There is a clarity of family in both a Rykiel business and a approach de Libran is putting her spin on a now Chinese-owned brand. The review collection, loosely formed on Italian engineer Carlo Mollino’s Polaroid photos of pin-ups, serve grown pivotal Rykiel signatures, such as stripes, finished here in a nautical cream-and-navy tweed dress and relating tip or in a trompe l’oeil weave dress with a layered look.
The pattern group also churned in denim pieces matched to a Parisian-chic contemporary wardrobe, including a retro-cut breathe with patch slot on a front ragged underneath a ditch with mistake hack imitation sleeves. The faux-fur elements and a sexier, some-more stone ’n’ hurl instruction — both carryovers from final deteriorate — continued to move a sip of cool, childish opinion to Rykiel’s contemporary line.
