The Sylvan lingerie collection (#KLVxSylvan) is a collaboration between independent designers Karolina Laskowska and Vanyanís, made by Karolina in Norway. The collection is made using Karolina’s expertly developed patterns to create lingerie that makes you look, and feel, your very best. This collection is available in sizes 8-20, with many of the pieces featuring flexible sizing due to adjustable strapping.
The fifteen styles in this collection are made from a range of soft deadstock bridal lace (that we dyed emerald green). Each piece is finished with gold hardware, black satin elastic, bows and green Swarovski crystal beads. The four capes are finished with silk covered buttons. The collection can be worn as underwear or cleverly styled as outerwear (the Bralets would look incredible peeping out the top of a dress or shirt and the lace capes would make an amazing finishing touch to your outfit).
This lookbook was created by photographing the lingerie on a mannequin and digitally ‘cutting out’ the garments. It’s a very clear way to show exactly what the garments (and lace) look like. It’s also a way to help you imagine what these pieces may look like on you – without a model wearing the pieces it prevents any conscious/unconscious body comparisons and makes it all about the garments. There are endless combinations of outfits you could make with these pieces. What would you wear?
