Subject: Sonia Rykiel: French fashion designer dies at 86

Written By: Philip Eno on 08/25/16 at 8:07 am

French fashion designer Sonia Rykiel has died at the age of 86.
Rykiel, nicknamed the Queen of Knitwear, had been suffering from Parkinson's disease for some time before her death on Thursday.
Nathalie Rykiel, managing and artistic director of the Sonia Rykiel fashion label, said: "My mother died at 05:00 this morning at her home in Paris from the effects of Parkinson's."
French President Francois Hollande praised her as "a pioneer".
He said Rykiel, whose relaxed striped knitwear was seen as a shift away from more formal suits, had "offered women freedom of movement".
