Sonia Rykiel’s Fall 2012 collection consisted of easy sporty pieces which had a surprisingly spring-like feel, but the black ear warmers worn by every model reminded you that this was a Fall collection.
We saw plenty of summery chiffon dresses alongside neutral chunky knits and shearling coats.
There was also a masculine-feminine split too, as boxy suits and double-breasted coats were presented alongside sweet sweaters over blouses, trompe l’oeil shirt dresses, fitted knitted pencil skirts worn low on the hips, belted long-sleeve dresses and sheer dresses with sexy thigh-high splits.
New creative director April Crichton very much captured the spirit of the Sonia Rykiel girl/woman.
Everything was easy and wearable with key accessories including ankle-strap wedges and shoulder bags.
The finale is always fun, as models get a chance to finally smile for the first time in four weeks.
Who I See Wearing This Collection: Kate Bosworth, Kirsten Dunst, Keira Knightley, Jaime King and Rachel Bilson.
