Born In Lithuania, Sonata Rapalyte started her love affair with beautiful fabrics when she was just a small child, dancing around her mother’s bedroom – whilst dressing up in lavish dresses – “It made me feel pretty and… happy…”
Sonata first picked up a needle and thread at the tender age of seven. She always knew where her passion lay, but really came into her own when she moved to London and worked for a string of lingerie designers including Damaris with whom Sonata launched the first ever Damaris collection. Living and working in London for a number of years Sonata realised there was a market for beautiful, luxurious lingerie. With ambition, she decided to create her own lingerie line. And the rest is history.
“I just want to make women feel pretty and sexy…. and when you wear amazing lingerie – you feel amazing. Some of my designs can be also worn on the outside too for more overt sexiness. Basically though, if I’ve achieved you feeling fabulous, then, I’m happy with that!” (Sonata Rapalyte)
Of all the lingerie boutiques and brands, Sonata is my favorite. The pieces in the linen collection are beautiful and practical with a fresh and airy look. And they’re probably a second skin for romantic women. With intricate details that underline the romantic gloom, Sonata lingerie brand breaths class and style.
