Sonia Rykiel SS14

Metallic Lurex for the disco, furs for the taxi home, and cardigans for the morning after

Initial reaction:

Disco knits and modest skirts.


Disco lights swirled above us on the ceiling, while Nintendo-like music sound tracked the show.

Unexpected details:

Metallic Lurex shimmered on long line skirts and tank tops; the ribbon belt on floral applique dresses was loose and languid – like they’d danced all night in it.

Stand out looks:

The all-encompassing rabbit furs in pale pink and orange, which the models clasped to their chests.


All hems finished mid calf - on straight, bias-cut and pleated skirts – lending an elegant, modest feel.

Model behaviour:

Hanne Gaby in a dressing gown like cardigan, white and shimmering over an illustrated skirt.


The exploded Argyll print in the opening looks, edged in neon.

How they wore it:

Off centre and hastily buttoned in asymmetrically zipped jackets, like a cover up post-lovers’ clinch at the party.


Gold and sculptural, worn with pale Lurex socks.


Striped and jeweled bucket hats left the models’ faces in shadow.
