RIP to Sonia Rykiel, an adored French designer that has been a staple in fashion since the 80’s.
She passed away at 86 years old at her home in Paris. Sonia had been secretly battling Parkinson’s for quite some time as confirmed by her daughter, Nathalie Rykiel, who also happens to be the artistic director for the Sonia Rykiel fashion house.
Sonia was known for being a girl’s girl. She really took pride in being a woman and all the different coats that women put on in order to take care of business. Whether you’re a stay-at-home mom or a global entrepreneur, Sonia had something for you.
“My shows are about the complete woman who swallows it all. It’s a question of survival.”
