Sonia Rykiel

I got a Sonia Rykiel trompe l'oeil sweater at a vintage sale a month or so ago.  This evening, I was browsing online to find out if I might have gotten a good deal on my sweater and I found this photograph of this insane portrait dress. I thought you should see it, too.  

In a mid '90s edition of Who's Who In Fashion Sonia's Paris apartment is described as "mostly black accented with neon lights and a menagerie of stuffed animals." I thought that seemed entirely believable. 

Here's something else that Sonia Rykiel designed. 

Here she is. 

She brings over-processed, very dry, ratted hair to a new level of chic. Awesome, non

  3. cowlicks and cameltoe....a veritable hobby farm!

  4. That camel toe is pretty extreme.
