Sonia Rykiel Spring Summer 2014

Sonia Rykiel has been having pretty bad luck with creative directors since she stopped doing the job herself. She is now 83, and I hope they hurry up and find a worthy, non-family member to take the reigns as I doubt she will be around much longer. Is Geraldo da Conceicao the man? I seriously doubt it. But at least his collection wasn’t total crap, although he could have certainly injected a few more Rykiel signature pieces.

I love…

that there are a few really nice prints in this show.

when you aren’t sure to love or loathe something, but you decide to love it because it is made of feathers.

I loathe…

that this is way too 90′s for my liking.

    Loving that printed dress and those sleeves! Something rather 1930s about this collection. Silhouettes? That fur/feather wrap thing?

    Absolutely, there is frequently a 1930′s feel to the Sonia Rykiel collections, with those lean silhouettes and lots of feathers and fur.
