SONIA BY THE SEA
Sonia Rykiel began knitting her own clothes in 1960s Paris; today, you can buy them at Aïshti by the Sea.
Unhappy with the maternity options available in stores, Rykiel made her own and sold them in her husband’s shop. After they divorced, Rykiel inherited the shop; her name is now synonymous with her trademark “Poor Boy Sweater,” and chic Parisian stripes. Now, style-hungry Beirutis can get their own pieces at the newly-opened Sonia Rykiel boutique within Aïshti by the Sea in Jal el Dib.
