Sonia Rykiel Gives Us Three Reasons To Hang Onto Neon

New, 1 comment

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

From knitwear genius Sonia Rykiel comes three reasons to hang onto neon for at least one more season: Namely that striped sweater you see above, a pair of crazy cute electric blue denim shorts you'll find when you click through the gallery, and a recurring fuchsia lip theme throughout. If you lived through the '90s the first time around, enjoy this trip down memory lane. If you're experiencing the whole electric youth thing for the first time, thank your lucky stars that Sonia Rykiel knows how to temper those cheeky brights with ladylike seperates—an accordian pleat skirt here, a sleek leather jacket there. Click through the gallery above for the full pre-spring 2014 collection.
