According to the show notes at Sonia Rykiel, “Beauty is no accident, it’s invented, reflected, it’s dialogue with the mirror.“ In this collection, Julie de Libran’s first for the brand, the mirror was central – it was in the metallic trousers and eyelet-perforated miniskirt, the snake skin slip dress and sequin-embellished dresses. The girls had an air of Barbra Streisland about them and their fur coats and suede thigh-highs. We love Barbs, so naturally we were sold.
