Sonia Rykiel for H&M


My latest piece for slice.ca...

Just in time for spring, Sonia Rykiel and H&M have teamed up to bring us a gorgeous and colourful knitwear collection that will help give your spring look a Parisian touch of je ne sais quoi. This diffusion collection is all about bold colours and sparkle and I'm loving every piece in this collection. Each piece is flirty, fun, sexy and ultra chic and can easily be mixed and matched with existing pieces in any wardrobe.

Dresses, jumpsuits, leggings, jumpers, tank tops, cardigans, jackets, shorts, skirts, sweaters, berets, bracelets, wedge heels, a tote, and a knit mini purse are some of the items that can be found in this collection. The primary colour scheme consists of pale pink, black, fuchsia and yellow with splashes of rhinestones for a bit of pizzazz and dazzle. The tailoring is simple, yet so effective, and the resulting shapes and silhouettes will flatter any wearer.

The stand out pieces for me from this collection are definitely all of the colourful striped pieces and the oversized jumpsuit. Sonia Rykiel clearly understands colour, volume and shape and it's refreshing to see a cohesive collection that effortlessly exudes style and fun. I definitely think that it's been a while since H&M has had an interesting designer collaboration and this collection has been well worth the wait!
