A Seventies boyish attitude was the leitmotiv for the Sonia Rykiel resort collection, Geraldo Da Conceicao’s last effort before leaving the house (Julie de Libran will take the creative reins beginning with the spring 2015 collection). Da Conceicao said “a young Jack Nicholson” was one of his main inspirations, thus the clothes had a tongue-in-cheek attitude. With odes to the Rykiel signature, bold sporty stripes came on knits, such as with the cardigan-and-dress twinset. Men’s tie motifs were worked on a satin jacquard shirt and matching cropped pants, and in a more technical vein, pink and red lace was bonded on a translucent water-repellent fabric for trenchcoats and skirts.
