A sample corset from 2017's Un|Seelie collection, with a dramatic silhouette and luxuriously layered lace appliqué. An outer shell of blue/black shot silk dupion is embellished with two varieties of French leavers lace: one is two-tone lilac/aubergine, and the other a black tulle with hand painted highlights of blues, greens and greys. Each has been impeccably hand stitched, flowing assymetrically over the corset body. Underwired quarter cups of silk dupion are overlaid with a delicate lace scalloped edge.
The interior of the corset is made of heavy black silk duchesse, with interior cotton twill channels encasing a mix of spiral and flat steel bones. The hems are bound in hand finished black silk duchesse satin, with an unsual pointed hip line.
This corset has been used for two photoshoots and is not sewn to a retail standard. This is reflected in the price. A similar bespoke garment would begin at around 40,000kr.
This corset has an exceptionally dramatic silhouette and is recommended for experienced tightlacers. The waist closes at 18.5", with a size 30D/32C bust and approximately 34" hip. This piece is not recommended for waist training.
