Inspiration of The Month: September 2016

Sonia Rykiel

I had to reorganize my upcoming posts due to our sad loss of a wonderful designer.

May 25, 1930 – August 25, 2016

Sonia Rykiel is responsible for making the poor boy sweater, after she was unable to find something to wear during pregnancy ย in 1962. All the popularity of this sweater landed her a spot in Elle. Her brand was founded in 1968 designing clothing accessories and fragrances. In 2012 she announced that she had been suffering from Parkinson’s for fifteen years. August 25, 2016 she died in her home in Paris at 86 and after suffering with parkinson’s for nineteen years.
