Sonia By Sonia Rykiel is the fashion house's contemporary diffusion line, a lighthearted and cutting-edge vision of Saint-Germain-Des-Prés' Left Bank Parisienne. A colourful and graphic line offering creativity and sexiness, it has all the trademarks of Sonia Rykiel, but cheekily rewired.
In 1962 Sonia Rykiel began to design her own jumpers, selling from her husband's label 'Laura'. After her 'Poor Boy Sweater' made the cover of ELLE magazine, she shot to fame, and was crowned 'Queen of Knits' by Women's Wear Daily.
Sonia Rykiel made the pullover her signature style, with stripes, lace, rhinestones and more shaking up the bourgeois dressing of the time in favour of a new allure, now synonymous with Parisian, St Germain Style.
An iconic designer with flamboyant red hair, Sonia Rykiel launched Sonia by Sonia Rykiel in 1990, retaining the chic left-bank style of the mainline while injecting a youthful, playful Joie de vivre. Shop the latest collection on Coggles with free UK and EU delivery available.
