Who The Hell was Sonia Rykiel

I´m kind of excited because the astronomical Fall will begin on September 22nd in the Northern Hemisphere and the day before Spring will begin in the South.  The reason I´m so excited is because during my last four years in Second Life I have never witnessed such a profusion of creativity from designers than during this past season.

Naturally of course, the expectation thrills me. Will this proliferation and rampant  creation continue during this season? I hope it does.

Perhaps it´s a reaction to the uncertainty we all feel regarding Sansar or perhaps it´s just natural. Either way I´m enjoying it thoroughly!

In any case I can hardly keep up with all this newness but will do my best to keep up as best I can!

Today, I´m lucky enough to own four of her pieces. As noted by my cousin MdL who is also in the business, ¨ they are now to be considered official vintage¨. It saddened me.

I meant to post a proper ode to her but I would fall short. I leave you with this song about her by Malcolm McLaren and a little video about who she was.

Her genius, style and freedom will forever define a moment, a place, a time for the emancipation of women. To me as a very aware child, it was as if she had liberated the female soul. I hope we never lose that which she helped us achieve. Never lose ground!
