Iconic French designer Sonia Rykiel opened her first boutique in 1968. The designer instantly became recognised for her signature statement jumpers, emblazoned with playful slogans and bright hues. The designer was soon hailed the 'Queen of knits', despite never even learning how to work a pair of needles. Now under the creative direction of Julie de Libran, the brand's collections include denim, tweed jackets and quirky accessories in addition to the label's signature knitwear, that feel fresh, wearable and coolly Parisian. Whether you opt for printed silk shorts or tweed city styles, the label's collection of shorts are perfect pieces for summer outfit building.
