SONIA RYKIEL (1930-2016)
Sonia Rykiel, the Queen of Knitwear, has left this world as an iconic figure in the fashion world.
Devoting her life to women and their freedom, Sonia Rykiel has passed away on Thursday the 25th of August after suffering from the Parkinson’s disease for some time before her death.
” My first moment meeting Sonia Rykiel at her home will stay in my heart as a very beautiful memory. I was very touched by the charm and grace of this unique woman who truly defined what it means to be iconic. She will be greatly missed but her style, legacy and spirit will never be forgotten and will live on to continue inspiring women around the world.”
