For Spring/Summer 2016, Julie de Libran’s collection for Sonia Rykiel jubilantly soared along a chic, youthful airstream carried ever higher by vibrant colors, fur investment pieces, imaginative knits, and optic prints. The opening tunic’s surface was encrusted with multicolored crystals and paired with a fuchsia, plissé skirt, which made it clear that we were in for a fun time. De Libran followed it up with more plissé in a lovely shade of marigold that was cut into easeful separates, as well as sequin embroidered mini skirts and tops touched with vivid swallow prints. A sporty mood was invoked by wide-knit color-blocked sweaters and slinky mini dresses, while other tactile effects were rendered by cozy knit jackets, textured ivory tunics, and boxy separates made from a glossy macramé knit. Additionally, there were feminine dresses touched with lampshade ruffles, multi-colored fur outerwear, and fringed leather skirts. The collection reached a decadent finale, as gowns were sent forth in a sizzle of top-to-toe sequins, rendered into artistic form by cracked glass lace or scored with a hyper-glamorous assortment of disco glitter embellishment. Appointed with a joie de vivre aesthetic influenced by a particularly glamorous parliament of “night owls”, the presentation spoke to nights filled with chance encounters. These party-girl clothes were charming, seductive, and exceedingly cool.
