Sonata Rapalyte – New Collection….and a little insight into Solstiss Lace



John Heathcoat was determined to find a way to replicate the movements of the lace makers’ delicate fingers, with a machine. His invention, perfected by John Leavers, arrived in Northern France.
1879 and Leavers Lace also called Dentelle de Calais was born.

1974, four well- established lace makers from the region decided to join forces and formed Solstiss.
They provided the means for larger and more efficient production, increasing their activity while maintaining the tradition of lace making in Northern France.

Maison Ledieu Beauvillain
Victor Machu and AEG Joel Machu
Robert Belot
Maison Edouard Beauvillain

Each lace maker brought to the table a unique skill and tradition that set them apart from the others, to create 1 cohesive brand and expert lace makers across all categories.

Today, Solstiss is respected worldwide for its fine luxury laces and known for the wealth and diversity of its lace patterns

The world’s Top fashion houses turn to Solstiss laces as a resource and inspiration for their creations.

Sonata Lingerie

Sonata Rapalyte is the lady behind the luxury lingerie label Sonata and well know for the iconic Sonata Bodysuit which Violet fell in love with on day one, and equally popular with Violet’s customers.

All of Sonata’s beautiful lingerie is ethically handmade in Lithuania where attention to detail is second to none.

Sonata Lingerie

The Sonata Bodysuit

Made from super soft 100% polyester floral patterned lace and 100% silk satin trimmings, the bottom half of the suit is a full brief style although a thong version is now available in the Sonatine Long-Sleeved Lace Bodysuit  seen above.

The gusset is lined with silk and is snap-fastened.

It has sweet silk trimmed cap sleeves and an under bust seam, which offers light support.

The beautiful scalloped detail at the neck forms a deep V at the front which leads to nine silk covered buttons.

It comes in an array of wonderful colours from a cool ivory to vivid pink and of course black, trust me, you will find it difficult to choose just one.

Sonata Lingerie

The Bow Back Bodysuit

The bow back version of all colours is just as tempting, this suit has a deep V at the back as well as at the front.

Sonata Lingerie

The Diva Bodysuit

The Diva bodysuit is handmade from beautiful Solstiss lace and is finished with very subtle genuine Swarovski crystal detailing just to make you feel extra sensational.

This lace is a beautiful old gold colour with black silk trim and black silk covered buttons.

Are you contemplating a boudoir shoot?

Then we feel that the bodysuit is an ideal piece of lingerie to add to your lingerie selection.

But for those that don’t have to think about this, it will simply look sensational and a great keepsake for after.
