Sonia Rykiel dropped a bomb on the fashion world in her new book N’oubliez pas que je joue (Don’t forget it’s a game): she has Parkinson's.
After struggling with the disease for the past 15 years the French designer decided to come clean because she couldn't disguise the symptoms anymore. Rykiel writes:
"I don’t want to show my pain. I resisted, I hesitated, I tried to be invisible, to pretend that nothing was wrong. It’s impossible, it’s not like me.”
So sad, but at the same time we applaud her for being so brave.
Sending love, light and positive thoughts your way Sonia!
