Sonia Rykiel Catwalk Fashion Show Paris SS2011
The weather in Paris hasn’t been very good the last couple of days. But as it was raining outside, inside the Sonia Rykiel fashion show it felt like a sauna (a little smelly sauna actually). Yet despite the smell we enjoyed the typical Sonia Rykiel show full of colors, stripes and knitwear.
The show had a seventies vibe and felt very happy due to the bright shades (pink, red, yellow, turquoise) and of course the smiling models with their frizzy hair.
Just like last season the designs (the men’s suits, the jumpsuits and the knitted dresses) were very oversized. Although some silhouette was created by what looked like stiff karate-belts in all kinds of brights. Other accessories were clutches, ultra large bags and hats with playful tassels.
A few detailed printed and sequined jumpsuits, shown towards the end, seemed the only new items Nathalie and Sonia came up with for spring. Even the finally, with groups of models appearing on the runway acting all crazy, was nothing unexpected, but it sure was fun to watch and led to some beautiful runway pictures.
