Kelly Rutherford, Nathalie Rykiel, Michelle Williams
Sonia Rykiel and celebrated the launch of her collection with H&M! Her daughter Nathalie Rykiel had the brightest smile on her face! The event was held in Chelsea at BoBo Bar cocktails and wine flowed from every direction. Supermodel Chanel Iman was the DJ for the night; I spoke to Chanel for a minute and she said “I’m so excited for Fashion Week here in NY!” She also said “Fashion is something that I want to continue doing for a long-time!”Among some of the other guest that appeared to enjoy launch were Kelly Rutherford, Leighton Meester from Gossip Girl and Mark Indelicato from Ugly Betty and Kelly Bensimon from Real Housewives of New York. Michelle Williams (dressed in head-to-toe Sonia Rykiel/H&M) told us she was excited about her Broadway debut as Roxy hart in the hit musical Chicago. Williams is also working on an album that will be out later this year.
The Sonia Rykiel collection for H&M is casual chic. As you can see from the photo’s the dresses and tops are all knitted cotton, very comfortable for the spring season. “Everything is possible,” she tells the WSJ. “You can always wear lingerie [as outerwear]. You mix it with jeans, put a fur on it, a lovely sweater. It will never disappear from the wardrobe as something [that can be worn] to go out.” Everything from the bangles and shoes are classic Rykiel. Stripes are always a trend for the spring whether they are nautical or tropical. Brighten up your wardrobe with a look from the Sonia Rykiel for H&M. This second collaboration will be launched in around 200 H&M stores on February 20, 2010.
