Sonata Lingerie

Sonata Rapalyte (the Designer)

From as far as she can remember, Sonata always had a passion for sewing and knew she wanted to make it her profession. In 1999, after earning her diploma in fashion and accountancy, she decided to leave her home country, Lithuania, to carry on her training as a stylist in the UK. Once in London, she started working for different fashion designers and then spent 6 years at Damaris' where she gained the necessary experience to launch her own lingerie brand in June 2009.

About ʻSonata Lingerieʼ (the Brand)

The designer's idea behind Sonata Lingerie is to adorn the bodies of those who want to be subtly reminded that they are deserving of only the very best.

To this end, Sonata Lingerie fuses beautiful and technically unique design forms with hyper luxurious fabrics such as silk chiffon, satin, linen and lace, creating garments that contour and deify the female form.

Since its creation in 2009, Sonata Lingerie has quickly expanded and is today not only sold by 28 stockists across France, Spain, the Netherlands, United Kingdom and USA but spotted in prestigious magazines such as Vogue UK, WWD, ES London,Intima, Everzine.

In February 2010, Sonata Lingerie was ranked second out of all the designer lingerie brands (Intima magazine, France's leading lingerie and swimwear publication). 

About SS13 Collection - Stardust

The Stardust Collection is a beautifully artistic range aimed at emphasizing and embellishing women whatever their mood or the occasion.
Sonata then chose to combine vibrant, elegant, mono and mixed colours (pink, fuschia, purple, black and gold) with amazing artistry and innovation to create a new, fresh and highly desirable range all made with the highest standards of craftsmanship.

Delicate lace, silk chiffon and silk satin remain a strong feature where sequins make their apparition in the masterpiece stardust bodysuit.
