Sonia Rykiel for H&M

Matthew Williamson, Jimmy Choo, Stella McCartney… H&M just keep those hot designer collaborations coming! We loved the lush lingerie collection created by Sonia Rykiel for H&M last autumn and now the queen of quirky knit is creating a line of knitwear and accessories due to hit the high street 20th February.

Not only that, for the first time H&M will be including a selection of children's wear as part of the collection.

Expect all of Rykiel's signature French chic; bold colour, multi-coloured stripes, rhinestones and little black dresses.

'After our lingerie collaboration, I wanted to get to the heart of the brand by offering a joyful, 100% knitwear collection,' says Nathalie Rykiel, president and artistic director of Sonia Rykiel. 'Knit is the essence of Sonia Rykiel and an absolute must for all women.'

So what fabulous little French additions to our wardrobe have we got our eye on? A trademark multi-stripe or two in the form of an outsized jumper dress and a tank top are both on our list. The yellow and white striped bikini is definitely coming on holiday with us, plus the jumpsuit, a beret and the slogan sweater with 'Mon Pull Rykiel' are all most definitely desitned for our closets.
