music from fashion show
geraldo da conceicao : i'm always very passionate by strong women, and sonia is very strong, so there has been no difficulty, all the information is there and the spirit is very strong, all i do is show them in harmony, that's simply what it is.
i don't know if i've renewed anything, i've simply highlighted things that rykiel has worked on from the beginning: the slender silhouette, knitwear, soft textures.
there's also the fun side, the idea of playing with leather, which is hard but we make it softer, there is also irony because that's not actually how it appears.
nathalie rykiel : nowadays talent is not only about having ideas, it's really about understanding a world and having the right ideas in relation to the times and in relation to the house that we represent, and i'm very happy of this new chapter that's created for sonia rykiel which will allow it to be taken to where this house deserves to be.
he's worked really hard, he immersed himself in the archives, but it was almost more instinctive and tactile, he immediately understood this woman, it's for him to say but i think he had a lot of fun designing this collection.
