Sonia Rykiel Ready To Wear Spring Summer 2013 Paris

The final collection designed by April Crichton at Sonia Rykiel drew much attention when this staple of the Paris fashion schedule announced the abrupt cancellation of its September 28 show.

But shown in a more intimate setting than the gathering of hundreds of industry professionals, buyers and fashion lovers, the spring/summer 2013 collection of Sonia Rykiel truly showed the deep understanding of the brand's DNA by this seasoned member of the Rykiel inner circle.

Crichton's sweetest goodbye painted the variations of a light, dreamy summer day with a supporting cast of textures; if anything, this collection came back to the core of the Rykiel woman.

Accessories, always a hit in both their mainline and Sonia by Sonia Rykiel, were very bold 70s inspired geometries in metallic and exotic leathers. The Mazarine clutch with its jeweled strap will surely inspire desire.

A "Rose lumière" (light pink) trench coat cohabits with mat satin shorts perfect for daywear, wool guipure redefines the Saharienne jacket. Chunky knit has a lush as ever touch which embodies the morning light theme. Further in the "day", the perennial stripe receives an unexpected but welcomed update as a texture block mimicking a summer daytime sky. The evening lights start off as a warm jewel tone, and finishes with that Parisian staple, black.

The graphic rework of the male tail coat suggested with shorts, or sequin encrusted separates in an inky medley provide just the right amount of shine to this eveningwear. Tender is this night.
