Creative director April Crichton mined the Seventies and Eighties for Sonia Rykiel’s resort collection, looking to the house’s own accessories archives as well as strong men and women like Tina Chow, Yves Saint Laurent and Grace Jones. All that, along with a decidedly Asian slant, resulted in easy, linen kimono coats and tops and obi-sashed wrapped pants, as well as a terrific crushed silk and cotton pantsuit in an abstract leaf print with a sharp-shouldered jacket and lean pants. Rykiel’s staple knits were there, too, looking freshest in graphic jacquards.
