Since I’ve been working on my other labor of love, I haven’t had so much time to post some of my favorite looks, and fashion anticipations. The first of these desirables is the new Sonia Rykiel for H&M collection lauching February 20th. When I think Sonia Rykiel, I think of my wild and crazy days (and nights) racing all over Paris, dallying through the Marais, having lunch along the Seine, grabbing tchotckes in Belleville. And running around in my sexy little Sonia Rykiel tank making French men blush. Ah, to be young in Paris. The new Rykiel line promises lots of bold color, stripes, and sparkly berets to brighten up your winter blahs.

“The essence of Sonia Rykiel is the Parisian woman of Saint Germain des Pres, the Left Bank or Rive Gauche,” the designer’s daughter, Nathalie Rykiel, who is also president and artisitc director of the fashion house, explains.

“The idea of the collection is to offer the essence of Sonia Rykiel. This [H&M] line is absolutely true to our philosophy, which is about quality and know-how, and not about money. H&M gave me complete freedom with creation and quality. We used pure wool and pure cotton. It’s the DNA of Rykiel.”
