Sonia Rykiel brings back the 70's glitz to Paris fashion week

Sonia Rykiel dazzles with a glittery 70's style Spring/Summer ready-to-wear collection and a pop-tastic presentation.


PARIS, FRANCE (OCTOBER 4, 2009) SONIA RYKIEL HANDOUT - The only thing missing at Sonia Rykiel's do was a shiny disco ball.
The French designer's show had all the elements of a 1970's discotheque, her boutique in the Paris city vibrated with catchy dance music on Sunday (October 4) as models grooved down the catwalk presenting the 70's style Spring/Summer collection.

This fun collection featured deep feminine necklines, tapered black pants and very retro cocktail dresses studded with large stars or large knots.

Rykiel's models not only sported brightly coloured headbands and glittery sunglasses, but also dazzling smiles on their faces as they danced down the catwalk.

The French designer is to collaborate with Swedish clothing giant Hennes & Mauritz (H&M) for a lingerie collection to be launched worldwide in December 2009.
