Sonia Rykiel C.D.M. S.A

In May 1968, Sonia Rykiel opened her first boutique in Paris, rue de Grenelle, on the left bank. That same year, she was elected ‘Queen of Knits’ by the American publication Women’s Wear Daily, and her sweaters became the emblem of her trade. She then went on to invent the inverted seam, the ‘no hem’ and the ‘no lining’. Her DMODE (de-fashion) philosophy urged women to adapt fashion to their own taste and personality rather than follow the diktats of the designers. She created a unique style that would soon be recognized throughout the world, its most distinctive features comprising, stripes, sequins, lettering and the color black. Several other passions nourish her creativity, such as literature, designing, acting and gastronomy.
