BEHIND THE BRAND
Sonia Rykiel is a Parisian icon, founding her namesake label in 1968 on Paris’ Left Bank and revolutionizing both French and world fashion throughout her career. The so-called “Queen of Knits” was known for her body clinging striped sweaters. Now designer Julie de Libran has taken the helm and is steering the house in a modern yet feminine direction with provocative undertones, just as Rykiel herself once did.
