Julie de Li­bran found the in­spi­ra­tion for her sec­ond col­lec­tion as the artis­tic di­rec­tor of So­nia Rykiel in re­flected im­ages. Draw­ing on Rykiel’s own fas­ci­na­tion with mir­rors, the de­signer used in­no­va­tive fab­ric and tex­ture com­bi­na­tions for Au­tumn/Win­ter ’15. “This col­lec­tion plays with light in many fas­ci­nat­ing ways,” says De Li­bran. “I ex­per­i­mented with fab­rics, us­ing em­bel­lish­ment and metal­lic leather to cre­ate a re­flec­tion.” The de­signer re­worked the striped jumper – per­haps the most iconic gar­ment in the brand’s his­tory – with chain­mail and se­quins, while metal­lic snake­skin dresses were in­spired by an im­age of Bette Mi­dler in a gold tur­ban. A vel­vet jump­suit was em­bla­zoned with an archive flo­ral print from Lib­erty, and the clos­ing looks fea­tured adorned floor-length striped dresses. “These were in­spired by the work of the artist Jeppe Hein, who uses mir­rors,” says De Li­bran. “It is these mir­rors that cre­ate a re­flec­tion; and re­flec­tion never lies.”
