'Je m'appelle Imogen, and I'm wearing a knit dress', cried one, 'I'm a foxy girl', cried another, as Sonia's cheeky models paraded the catwalk in a characteristically fun collection from mother and daughter team Sonia and Nathalie Rykiel.
Paris seemed to be their inspiration - and why not, it's been the label's home for over forty years. Cue signature stripe knit dresses, velvet trousers and smoking jackets, embellishment on lapels and sleeves, ruffles galore - teamed with knee high suede boots in rusty tones, and patchwork suede hobo bags.
These are clothes for Parisian bourgeois bohos who will be having plenty of fun next season.
