Sonya Rykiel A/W

Bold colours, kooky tailoring and voluminous ruffles were the name of the game at Sonya Rykiel’s A/W show. Alice bands with pom poms – reminiscent of preened topiary bushes – bobbed upon heads, the figures underneath cocooned in chunky knit dresses, oh-so-cosy cashmere coats and sheer, body-skimming silk dresses in electric blue, scarlet, ochre, black and blush. There were plenty more quirky touches to come. A stripy, knitted full-body suit was teamed with aviator goggle style glasses and a top hat, while ridiculously puffy dresses that looked like marshmallows bounced happily down the catwalk – the models clearly enjoying themselves and providing an effect that was infections. The accessories too only added to this charming, eccentric English aesthetic. Gorgeously tactile fluffy totes, retro-inspired leather belts, cosy woolly tights and daring platform heels – with the ubiquitous platform wooden sole that next season is all over – striding the looks down in style.
