Paris in the seventies—romantic, rebellious and always fashionably chic, was a mix of sophisticated smart elegance and a free-spirited boho wanderlust. It was a transitional time much like the changing of the seasons when we transition from one way of living to another. And Sonia Rykiel’s pre-collection for spring 2017 embraces this duality with the same sense of elegance, grace and restless adventure. Smart tweed suits of black and white checks were equally at home with peasant shirts and broomstick tiered dresses.
Belts are big and command attention in a quiet nod to the eighties
Long A-line coats play well with poet sleeved tops and swingy off the shoulder frocks. Belts are big and command attention in a quiet nod to the eighties. And trousers are lose and flowing, wether paired with gauzy casual blouses or more formal button downs and reflect the kinetic vibe of the collection. And many of the looks feature Roma inspired beautiful takes on the traditional bandanna and they can be seen with everything from the traditional suits and off the shoulder dresses to the less conventional cropped jacket ensemble. Throw in a leopard print sheath dress, a side split knit skirt, and a fabulous studded bag or two and you have one eclectic, romantic collection that is at once sensual and smart.

Before I read the title I thought it was a fall collection as it’s kind of flirting with typical fall fashion. But nevertheless, I adore it! Love all the layers and the patterns! Xx

This collection is retro inspired done right! If only we can go straight from fall to next spring. I’m all for skipping over winter after that last harsh one we had ;p

My first thought was gypsy inspired and you called it Roma inspired, I do like your description more and it does sounds better too. LOL! Not quite my cup of tea but it’s a beautiful collection nonetheless.

Cool inspiration, Paris in the 70’s must have been wonderful not just for the fashion.

Tous avaient compris, ils jugeaient inutile de se fatiguer encore a causer; et c’etait maintenant
une attente aneantie, sans courage, l’attente derniere
du secours qu’Etienne, peut-etre, allait deterrer quelque part.

What a fabulous collection Allie, it is as though each look is its own entity. Lovc the drape of the skirts and trousers, the ric rac trim, the great little bags on chain, and that double belted number.
That is often how I tie my belt, as my belts are too large, a habit for 40 years now, eek maybe more, so I am glad to see it in print. Maybe it has always been there. I hope hour weekend was great!
wow 2017, that seems so far away!
