Rixo's new collaboration is a retro dream

After a sell-out collaboration with Laura Jackson, Rixo - the brand behind dreamy spring dresses that made us fall in love with prints all over again - has now teamed up with Parisian-based influencer Sabina Socol, and I love it all.

Best described as 'Cher Horowitz’s nineties signature style meets Jane Birken’s seventies Parisian', the collection comprised of nine pieces, including a ditzy floral slip dress, pink corduroy flares, a cotton ruffle crop top and a gorgeous feathery handbag.


There's even a retro bikini that will be perfect paired with wedges and a basket bag on your next summer holiday. Sabina also posed in the collection for the lookbook, proving how wearable it is.

Henrietta Rix & Orlagh McCloskey, Co-founders and Creative Directors at RIXO, explain, 'The capsule is based on a mix of inspirations, interests and references we all love - it felt really organic to work together to translate them into a capsule. We wanted to create fun yet wearable pieces that we could genuinely see ourselves and Sabina wearing this summer.'

Meanwhile, Sabina describes the designs are a perfect marriage between French and English style. She says, 'our mutual likes and ideas meant the collection grew from a really natural and real place - it’s a dream when it works out like this and I hope it transpires in the collection. For me, our collection perfectly personifies English and French style - when London meets Paris!'

The collection is available exclusively at RIXO.co.uk, Galeries Lafayette Champs Élysées in Paris and RIXO’s pop-up store on the Kings Road in London.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at MoneySavingExpert.com, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
