Sneak Preview: Sonia Rykiel For H&M, Take Two

Sonia Rykiel’s lingerie collection for H&M may have been an appealing idea, but truth be told, we weren’t quite rushing to stores to buy it. After all, when an iconic designer like Rykiel does a collaboration with a budget chain, isn’t the point to feel like you purchased something affordable with the same spirit as the original? Rykiel, considered a French fashion staple to Parisian-styled girls, made her claim to fame with luxe, bright colored knits, often decorated with stripes. (Kind of a far cry from lacy lingerie, no?)

Now it seems Miss Sonia is giving the crowds what they want—she’s slated to do another collection for H&M, this time producing wares that are much more identifiable with the Rykiel brand. Coming to stores in February, the range features bright pink or yellow knit dresses, oversized striped sweaters, sparkly leggings, and some too-cute, bow-adorned pullovers. To this we say: Oui, oui, oui! More pics after the jump. [Mademoiselle Quincampoix]
