Published in conjunction with an exhibition at the Musee des Arts Decoratifs in Paris, this handsome volume presents fashions by noted designer Sonia Rykiel who celebrated her 40th anniversary in fashion in October 2008 and was famously anointed the fashion world's "Queen of knitwear" by "Women's Wear Daily."
This sumptuous book is a celebration of the iconic designer's lifetime in fashion. Included are photographs from 80 seasonal collections spanning 40 years and interlaced with remarkable personal anecdotes and reminiscences alongside candid photos of the designer by acclaimed photographers Dominique Issermann and Sarah Moon. Also included are images from the official campaigns that originally appeared in such leading fashion publications as "Vogure, Elle, Marie-Claire, "and many others.
Though designing since 1962, Sonia Rykiel achieved instant acclaim when she founded her own label in 1968.
