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.
