Once upon a time, Sonia Rykiel — the “queen of knitwear” — designed a budget collection for H&M. The pieces were bold and bright and fun, featuring statement stripes, rhinestone details and lots of pink.
The images below are from the second installment of the collection, originally available on February 20, 2010.
Today you won’t find any Rykiel pieces at H&M. But you still find some of these pieces on your favorite luxury vintage stores. Scroll down to see some picks we uncovered in January, 2019.
