Sonia by Sonia Rykiel Pre-Spring 2014: Cheeky and fun femininity

A distinctly cheeky, feminine charm permeated the Sonia by Sonia Rykiel Pre-Spring 2014 collection, best exemplified by the lipstick tube-printed blue and white striped shirt worn with a pair of navy blue pants covered with an allover lip print.  This latter playful print also popped up throughout the collection in pieces ranging from a maxi dress to a cute beige and black peplum top.  Classic Rykiel-striped dresses, featuring thick bands of bright fuchsia, yellow and green interspersed with thinner black stripes, carried the same sense of humor – you cannot help but smile while wearing something from this collection.

To balance out the whimsy, there were simple cream and white pieces such as the basic ivory ribbed sweater paired with white shorts (but with the hem of a lip-printed top peeking out from underneath the sweater), in addition to a black leather pleated skirt and shorts.  But let’s be honest here – you would rather wear the orange and white striped knit with the giant tube of red lipstick on it, right?
