The Sylvan Collection
The Sylvan lingerie collection (#KLVxSylvan) is a collaboration between independent designers Karolina Laskowska and Vanyanís, made in Norway by Karolina and released in November 2023 exclusively here on the Vanyanís website.
The Sylvan lingerie collection is inspired by our shared love of exquisite materials and passion for minimizing waste from the fashion industry. This fifteen piece collection features a stunning variety of ‘deadstock’ bridal lace that we dyed an enchanting shade of emerald green to form a cohesive, luxurious collection. Because there are several different lace designs within the ‘Sylvan’ collection we’ve named the individual pieces based on the lace used (which you will find in the product listings). (“Deadstock” fabric refers to fabrics that are leftover from other company’s productions. Often this fabric is thrown away into landfill, especially if brands want to keep certain fabrics exclusive to their label).
Each of the gorgeous laces featured in the collection have been carefully hand cut to best showcase the beautiful design of the fabric, piece by piece. In addition to the range of soft laces, we used luxurious, high quality materials for this entire collection, including satin-finish elastic strapping, luxe gold-plated hardware, black satin bows and green Swarovski crystal beads. Each piece of lingerie is expertly crafted entirely by hand and the limited edition collection is one you won’t want to miss.
The collection is made using Karolina Laskowska’s expertly-developed patterns to create lingerie that makes you feel, and look, your very best. All styles are available in sizes UK 8-20, with many of the pieces featuring flexible sizing due to adjustable strapping. We wanted to be as inclusive as possible with sizes (taking into account that production is done by just one person, rather than a factory) and we were able to increase our range of sizes for this collection (compared to our first). As a result there are teeny tiny quantities of each size – the thing about deadstock fabrics is they’re very limited!
We believe in celebrating craftsmanship and working to create special pieces that will be treasured and loved for years. Rather than designing for a passing trend, we focus on making lingerie that will become a timeless favourite in your wardrobe.
The collection will first be released to Karolina’s Patreon subscribers and Vanyanís VIPs on 5-Nov-2023 and then publicly on 12-Nov-2023. Subscribers to either/both will get a week’s early access to this collection.
