Gotta Have It: Sonia Rykiel for H&M Knitwear Collection
The designer is back at H&M with affordable knitwear pieces.
French designer Sonia Rykiel is releasing her second wave of fun and sexy clothing for H&M on February 20 — just in time for spring. Known as the Queen of Knits, Rykiel is bringing what she does best – striped knit sweaters, dresses, scarves and leggings – to 200 H&M stores nationwide.
We’ve peeked at the Sonia Rykiel pour H&M Knitwear Collection and absolutely love the bright pink blazer ($69.95), the cheerful yellow and white cardigan ($34.95) and the sexy black leggings that are covered in rhinestones ($34.95). But we aren’t the only ones in luck; she’s also created some adorable clothing for little girls, too.
In addition to women’s and girl’s clothing, there are accessories that will add a little French sass to your wardrobe. Included in the collection are rhinestone-adorned bangles ($9.95) and berets ($17.95) and chunky black and pink platform sandals ($59.95).
There’s also a limited-edition UNICEF bag ($24.95).This tote proudly states it’s Mon Sac (my bag), and 30 percent of the proceeds will go to the All for Children fund, UNICEF and H&M’s initiative to help improve the lives of children in the cotton-growing areas in India.
Just like her lingerie collection, Rykiel’s Knitwear Collection is sure to be snatched up in a New York minute. To find a store near you that stocks the line, click here.
