We have been so delighted to be a part of this year's Lingerie Secret Valentine Campaign, where a collection of independent lingerie designers got together to exchange gifts. In our previous blog post we discussed the background of this event, as well as the pieces we were gifting - read all about them here!
This time, I wanted to highlight my gift, which was sent to me by Kristen from Seelanii Lingerie. Kristen runs the business by herself and everything, from the first design to the finishing touches, is made from her home studio in Wroclaw, Poland.
Seelanii Lingerie centres around slow and sustainable fashion, offering carefully designed collections that are made to be cherished. From the initial fit tests through to the plastic free packaging, each step in the manufacturing process is considered carefully, so I feel extremely lucky to have this brand as my secret Valentine!
I was absolutely thrilled to receive this customised Jagoda set, crafted from Chantilly lace and stunning berry coloured natural silk.
The bra features mesh-lined lace cups, finished with a beautiful eyelash lace along the neckline. The silk cradle features a bagged-out centre front and double lined wings, which extend into a gated back with silk-covered adjustable straps. The bra is finished off with gold hardware, and gorgeous zoisite crystals decorate the centre front.
The matching lace thong showcases lush silk bows, which are fully functional and made carefully by hand. The cotton-lined gusset is also fully bagged-out, which ensures that the seams are secure. The set itself arrived beautifully wrapped, with a bundle including a handwritten note from Kristen and a lingerie care guide.
I can really see the exquisite craftsmanship and the amount of time and care that Kristen puts into her pieces. I also received a special gift from Seelanii's new collection, which will be released soon!
