Le Pavé Parisien, the original handbag
A truly iconic Sonia Rykiel handbag, Le Pavé Parisien pays subtle tribute to the events of May ’68 in France and the fashion house’s first store, opened on the Left Bank. More than half a century ago, the designer was inspired by the sense of freedom that swept through Paris to create a Sonia Rykiel handbag with a sleek and minimalist design that would accompany woman around the world in their everyday lives.
Available in full-grain leather, canvas or python skin, this is an understated, elegant and timeless piece with sleek lines that has become one of the fashion house’s best-sellers. With its two-way zip fastening, saddle-stitched handle and removable shoulder strap, it is transformed in a sophisticated and playful way, becoming the ideal everyday companion.
Le Copain, a tasteful and quirky handbagLight emanates from the collections by Sonia Rykiel, who introduced stripes as a signature style and was inspired by elegant playfulness. Accessories are designed to be tasteful and quirky, just like the designer herself. This was the inspiration behind the Sonia Rykiel Le Copain handbag, designed to be a multifaceted companion at all times. L’Original is instantly recognizable with its pyramid-shaped quilted leather and its jewelry clasp, making it one of the iconic accessories by the Rykiel fashion house. Decorated with fringing, colored tassels, sequins or fine topstitching, Le Copain is a tribute both to Parisian craftmanship and to Sonia Rykiel’s love for the arts and celebrations.
