Victorian flounces and collars also featured in the Sonia Rykiel collection, which Julie de Libran injected with a playful, nonchalant and very Parisian sensuality. Lots of blouses with big bows and long, fluid bohemian dresses in printed silk with ruffles and thin belt, worn with high-heeled boots – a Seventies style that mixed sailor stripes, fur details, menswear and sequined iridescence. The silhouette was long and lean, as seen on many of the runways, emphasised by high heels and extra-long lines. A recurring print by artist Maggie Cardelús depicted the faces of Rykiel’s women, as well as de Libran and the artist herself. The show ended with three nude looks, underlining the brand’s frivolous, seductive side.
