Sonia Rykiel has been one of my absolute favourite designers since 2009, when I discovered the fashion house through the whimsical, colourful collection they designed for H&M. For me, Sonia Rykiel stands for perfectly cut, soft knits, French elegance and stylistic irreverence. It’s the label worn by the liberated, bohemian girl who enjoys fashion, but doesn’t take herself too seriously. The brand worn by women you imagine frequent the brasseries in Saint-Germain-des-Prés wrapped in merino wool and cashmere with a cup of coffee in one hand and Mathias Enard’s Prix Goncourt winning Boussole in the other.

The dress I’m wearing in these photos struck me as a true Rykielism as soon as I saw it. It may not be designed by Ms. Rykiel herself (she passed on the fashion house to her daughter Nathalie), but to me it exudes the über French and slightly rebellious Sonia Rykiel heritage. I love the soft Merino wool fabric in olive green and the elegant shape, fitting closely around the waist, enhanced by a few playful touches such as the dropped shoulder seams and fit and flare cuffs.

I wore the dress with my black suede lace-up ankle boots (previously seen here) and a smart satchel from the Cambridge Satchel Company I’ve been wearing so much lately, in a different but congruent tint of green. Only a flame-red shock of hair on my head is lacking for me to truly live up to the Sonia Rykiel universe.

      Yes, I love Sonia Rykiel too. Their haute couture line is quite above my budget but the Sonia by Sonia Rykiel prêt-à-porter line is a bit more affordable and often has some lovely pieces too!

      Yes, it’s the taille (and the fit and flare cuffs) that makes the dress so unique. Have a great weekend!

    Love the green handbag. Cambridge Satchel bags always have this nice soft leather, in cute colors. Your boots are really elegant, they add tothe style of the post. I absolutely admire your posts!!

    Marvellous dress presented in an elegant way in beautiful streets. It really inspires me to try Sonja Rykiel: the dress looks soft and warm, very nice cut and color.

    Please do not change the colour of your hair for the sake of Rykielism. Your chestnut hair is the perfect match for your olive green Sonia Rykiel dress.

    Right, call the style of Sonia Rykiel Rykielism- she truly deserves it. But then, let me call your blogging style BoldBlissity. Every new post of you is a drug sending me up to cloud nine.
