Sonia Rykiel in Paris

When I was in Paris two weeks ago, I visited the Sonia Rykiel exhibit in Les Arts Decoratifs. This first major retrospective of Rykiel's work was organized on the occasion of her 4oth anniversary. The exhibit showcases her various creations since 1986, combined with fashion photographs and runway videos. I really enjoyed it, as it brings you a bit closer to this fascinating women, who revolutionized the fashion scene and paved the way for more freedom of expression in clothing.
Voila, some impressions of the exhibit:

The candy coloured stripes are one of the label's hallmarks.

Two gorgeous dresses!

This is Sonia's "crazy" sweater collection. (I guess the one with the big flower is worn by Carrie on her Paris trip).

The exhibit closes with the tribute collection by 30 of the most famous designers, which was organized by daughter Nathalie Rykiel as a surprise for the anniversary.
These are the super fun creations from Margiela, Gautier and Lagerfeld:

The exhibit is still opened until 19. April. So if you go to Paris, don't miss it!!
