I’m sorry to say that Sonia Rykiel passed away yesterday in Paris , 86 years of age. My thoughts go to all her colourful cloths, handbags and knitting that Sonia Rykiel designed. I have a nice handbag designed by her and there have been many women asking where they could get hold of one. Her design is provocative and brave with lots of colours. Sonia Rykiel was one designer that Katja of Sweden kept an eye on, both were true creative artists.
