For Calyx SS16 collection, the founder Cara Marie Piazza, using locally grown mint, iris and dahlia for dying the range of romantic, retro-nodding undies.

On our mind is Calyx, a New York-based brand with a home-grown approach to intimates.

Shaped by founder Cara Marie Piazza’s deep-rooted fascination for nature and lack of access to it throughout her NYC-based life, the designer’s hand-crafted underwear are made from sustainable sourced cottons, bamboos and silks. Not stopping her environmental endeavours there, Piazza partnered with local restaurants and florists, collecting their organic waste and turning it into dye along with home-grown plants shaping the prints. For her SS16 collection, locally grown mint, iris and dahlia from Rockaway Beach were used for dying the range of romantic, retro-nodding undies. Read an interview with Piazza by new-for-the-season stockist LN-CC here.
