Sonia Rykiel takes 'Golden Brown' trip to 70s
Sunday 03 October 2010
Roomy dungarees in tawny orange or dusty pink, knitted stripes on dresses, tops and shorts, platform sandals and huge, fuzzy hair: Sonia Rykiel took Paris on a trip to the 1970s on Saturday.
"Golden Brown" by the Stranglers set the tone for designer Nathalie Rykiel's spring/summer look for next year, unveiled mid-way through the Paris ready-to-wear shows.
Dungarees, worn over naked skin, came in all shapes and sizes: black with red spots and white flecks, with tapered legs and a thick satin bow across the back, or sexy and loose in dusty pink.
Body-hugging knitted dresses were a patchwork of muted colour, from rust-brown to mustard yellow or ochre, with two-tone patches on the elbows and knees, with one model wearing rust-and-black stripe from head to toe.
Riotous, curly hair burst out from under charcoal grey rain hats, while thick ribbons circled the ankle above platform sandals.
Rows of shiny brass buttons cropped up along the seams of raincoats, or down the side of wide-legged cropped pants.
Rykiel's woman was relaxed and comfy through till evening - when she stepped out in a loose, fuchsia pink dress with huge kimono sleeves, or a bare-armed, low-cut knitted dress in dust pink with a flowing yellow panel down the front.
And for the finale, Rykiel re-ran her full colour spectrum in a collection of pin-up knitted swimwear.
