Sonia Rykiel Fall Winter 2013

This Sonia Rykiel show was off to a good start, but sadly went downhill from there. Disappointments included a lot of badly fit trousers, sloppy styling ideas, lack of pants, and sending the same outfit down the runway thirty times. I’m sad as this is a brand that has a formula, and has deviated so far from it that most people probably don’t even know what it is about anymore. How hard is it to do a show full of beautiful knits?

I love…

sheer sloppiness.

sending way too many models down the runway with similar sweaters and badly cut trousers. But I do like the sweaters, just wish those sheer flowers weren’t directly over the breasts.

    I can’t believe you didn’t include the dresses with the triangle pointing to woman’s genitalia. That was so disrespectful and ugly. Plus, I really, really liked the first look and thought – wow, Sonia Rykiel is baaaaack! And up until the dresses with the triangles and the nipples in the end lol

    Yeah, I should have included those ones. They were BAD.
