This month marks the 5 year anniversary of the passing of Sonia Rykiel, the Godmother of female knitwear.
The Élysée Palace described Sonia Rykiel as “a free woman, a pioneer who was able to forge her own path”, and that “she invented not only a style, but also an attitude, a way of living and of being, and gave women a freedom of movement.”
The brand Sonia Rykiel has now sadly come to an end also, but Sonia’s legacy will live on, as will the indomitable spirit and inspiration that she provided to so many female led designers and brand owners.
Our latest range, which will be released this Autumn, pays tribute to Sonia in our own special way and we can’t wait to share it with you. For now, though, we take this opportunity to pay our tribute to a woman that was the embodiment of female liberation and empowerment and who believed in bold, quality and practical fashion for all women.
