Julie de Libran to Rykiel

Julie de Libran to Rykiel

Julie de Libran, former Louis Vuitton designer under Marc Jacobs, has been named artistic director at Sonia Rykiel. A KiC favorite, de Libran designed the resort (remember the fab denim and clogs?) and pre-fall collections for Vuitton. Raised in Paris and California, the designer told WWD that she’s inspired by her mother’s 70s wardrobe of YSL, Kenzo, and Rykiel. Her first show for the house will be in September and I predict that we will all be wearing Sonia Rykiel come next spring.

  • I’m very excited to see this. I’ve always loved vintage Rykiel and am curious if what she does will place a new spin on knits. My mother wore a lot of Rykiel in the 70’s also and the pieces were so easy to wear. They would be great with denim today.

  • I bought the most gorgeous Rykiel blazer in 1989 for my first job as an interior designer after graduating from university. It was cropped at the waist and very fitted – just gorgeous – I wore it until it fell apart! It will be interesting to see how Julie de Libran reinvents things!
