Sonia Rykiel, aka The Queen of Knits, is one of my favorite designers this Fall. I am SO pleased to share with you a few shots from her fall ready to wear collection. I am a HUGE fan of knits, long, baggy, manly, feminine, cropped, neutral, dark... goodness I can go on and on about my preferred sweaters. I love knits so much, that I had asked my mother to teach me to knit. Well, lets just say, its probably cheaper for me to just BUY a sweater instead of knit it myself. IT TAKES FOREVER!
Sonia Rykiel was born in the suburbs of Paris, and began her fashion career thanks to her husband. She was craving a perfect maternity sweater, so she had her husbands elegant clothing shop create her the ideal knit. Her first creation was called the Poor Boy Sweater which was sold from her husbands line "Laura." That Poor Boy Sweater made the cover of Elle and that was where her story of fame, fashion and timeless style began. Joy to the World.
