Sonia Rykiel-Interview

The very talented and stylish designer, Sonia Rykiel, has recently been awarded the Légion d’honneur for her 40 years of service to French fashion. She is mainly known for her love of rainbow stripes and knitwear and I'm pleased to have thrifted one of her gorgeous pieces for only £2.49 from Help The Aged charity shop last year.

To find out more about the Grande Dame of French style and fashion click here to read Celia Walden of the Telegraphs interview with the lady herself. Its a great read and an insight about what inspires and motivates her-hope you enjoy it!!

What bargains you find.. I bought a Sonia top from one of her boutiques in Paris many years ago.. it was in the sale but still pricey. I think my sister "borrowed" it and I never saw it again!
