"" wondermomo: SONIA BY SONIA RYKIEL Tank Dress

Friday, April 27, 2012


Queen of Knits: Bright printed knitwear gave iconic French designer Sonia Rykiel her first success, and this nickname. In 1990, more than 30 years after the much applauded main line, the designer launched Sonia by Sonia Rykiel, a younger and trendy sister line which has been no less desirable in fashionable circles.

This Spring/Summer, the Sonia by Sonia Rykiel collection is made up of, among others, a series of playful short dresses realised in the brand’s signature chic and quirky Left-bank style.
The strength of this versatile dress lies in the on-trend colourblock trim, taking the look from a simple tank to a refreshing statement.
And did we mention pockets? (Every gal needs extra pockets to stay alive organised.)
Go girlish for day by teaming it with multi-strap flat sandals and a cross-body bag, or opt for heels and a clutch for party hour.
(RRP US$385)
