From Queen of Knits to rebel designer, there is no single term to describe Sonia Rykiel’s style. The French designer got her start in 1962 when she drew sketches of a sweater and had it curated just for her, and grew into an iconic Parisian fashion house filled with slim fitting knits, large colored stripes and the designer’s iconic backwards stitch. In 1983, the brand’s childrenswear line Rykiel Enfant came to be under the creative eye of daughter Nathalie Rykiel. Nathalie Rykiel opened up to Melijoe.com about the brand’s launch. “I was pregnant with my eldest daughter and I couldn’t find anything that I liked”. Rykiel Enfant was born.
