LA MAISON

1968

The Sonia Rykiel sweaters are sold in the Laura boutique in Paris. The French singer Francoise Hardy and Audrey Hepburn, on a world tour for her movie, totally fall for this garment.

Since the 1970s, Sonia Rykiel (1930-2016) has embodied an emancipated and iconoclastic woman. She will always be known as one of the main figures of Parisian ready-to-wear.

Throughout the collections, Sonia Rykiel has been able to turn fashion upside down and create clothes that match with a real lifestyle. Shaking up institutions, not paying attention to codes and established rules, she has always taken women’s part. This perhaps explains the modernity, the longevity, the influence, the posterity of her vision and its unique journey.

RYKIELISME

Rykielism is a sociological and stylistic movement founded in 1968 by Sonia Rykiel in Saint-Germain-des-Prés, a neighborhood in Paris’ Left Bank. Rykielism extols the libération of women through sensuality, intelligence and irreverence.

Rykielism is about having the freedom to be oneself. It’s a way of life that’s chic and offbeat.
