The 'Allée' Sonia Rykiel

September 29th, 2018. A new landmark date in the history of the Maison Sonia Rykiel.

The city of Paris and its Mayor Anne Hidalgo, have decided to pay tribute to the designer by officially baptizing a street in her name during the Spring-Summer 2019 show.

Emblematic figure of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Madame Rykiel now has an alley on the Boulevard Raspail, between the streets of Cherche-Midi and Rennes, the very same alley where the Sunday organic market is held.

Sonia Rykiel, a free and independent figure, joins the more than limited circle of women who gave their name to a street in Paris.
