Sonia Rykiel urged women to be eccentric, seductive, mysterious, and to create their own style. She arrived (in every sense of the word) on Paris’ Left Bank in Saint-Germain-des-Prés in 1968.
The neighborhood was a haven to artists from the world over and she quickly became its heart.
The movement she created was intimately linked to the ready-to-wear revolution taking place in 1970s Paris. She typified a new generation of designers who launched their own labels outside the established system of Haute Couture.
Following the acquisition of French fashion house Sonia Rykiel by Li & Fung Group, FABERNOVEL partnered with the designer brand and Lola Rykiel (grand daughter's founder), to create a unique experience in HK for the launch of the new product line “Sonia by” targeting young fashionistas.
