NEW IN: KIMONO GOWN

Our brand new Kimono Gown is probably one of the coolest new pieces in our collection.

I wanted to take a very traditional bathrobe material and give it a modern edge. I tried to make it look so fine that you´d want to show it off and wear it as a coat on the streets.


 

The rib cuffs give it a sporty vibe, loose cut makes it comfy, pockets add a touch of function and the colour combinations make it fun.


 

But ladies this coat also seems to be a magnet for male attention. Never in my 7 times of visiting Tokyo have I been approached on the street. This just does not happen. But with the pink Kimono Coat I managed to get two guys asking me out for coffee. Honestly, I did not have any other explanation than the coat!


 

This piece is website and showroom exclusive. So get to know our new Kimono Gown here!


How I became a photographer for a day

This week we opened a pop-up at Isetan Shinjuku in Tokyo. We are honoured to also have an art frame installed with our latest collection “Rebel Heart”.

To celebrate the launch of the pop-up we hosted a live photoshoot. And I became the photographer.

My experience taking photos is not vast. I usually take them with my phone in a hurry. But this time I took my proper camera and put all the knowledge that I have gathered from the fantastic photographers I´ve worked with over the years. And I must admit, I sure had fun! Especially as we managed to find an Estonian model Anett in Tokyo for the shoot.

If you´re in Tokyo, go check out the pop-up before the 14th November!


 

What inspired the Caturday shoot?

Our AW17 campaign “The Perfect Caturday” is fully out now. But how exactly did the shoot come about?

The Perfect Caturday is all about having a lazy day home alone. You can sleep late, read a book in the bath, get some take away pizza. You take time to get ready for a party that you end up never going to. Being at home is just such a bliss.

Here we share some behind the scenes images from the day and a moodboard that prepared us for the busy day.

Tallinn Showroom Opening Party

Kriss Soonik Showroom

Yesterday we opened our first showroom in Tallinn. We had an amazing party with all our friends around us.

Morning didn’t start very promising – on the 26th October Estonia got its first snow! It was a real winter wonderland but luckily that doesn’t stop Estonians from having a really good time.

Sexy basketball boys served ice cold Moët & Chandon champagne. Cafe Ristikheina provided the tastiest and most beautiful cakes and canapes adorned with our cat logo and tiny black hearts. Our gorgeous DJ Laura Prits got us all dancing like there’s no tomorrow.

But I couldn’t have pulled it all off without the one and only Janne at Stiilikanal. She is the angel in events organisation heaven! Thank you!

Here’s a gallery from the very special evening. All pics by Kalev Lilleorg.
Thank you everyone who came and made it so memorable!


 

The showroom is now open at Paavli 5, Hoone 2. The entrance is from the courtyard.
I’ll be here every day 12-18.00 until Wednesday 1st November (except Sunday). After that it’s by appointment only.

Behind the Design: Wings Wrap

Wings Wrap

Our bestseller is back in stock! Just in time for the holiday season. Every year we bring back the Velour Wings Wrap in different colours. This time it’s grey melange and lilac, launching soon on our website.


 

Wings Wrap

The Wrap came to life in 2010. The idea was to create a comfortable dressing gown with a hint of lace glamour. I also wanted to create something that didn’t need to be hidden in your home. Diana Wings Wrap is also perfect for a Sunday brunch in a cafe. It’s so much more than just a dressing gown.


 

Wings Wrap

Before I ended up with wings, I played with many shapes. But the wings just stood out from all the others. The French lace wings are made completely by hand in our atelier. Our seamstress extraordinaire Ilona has become quite a master in sculpting them over the years.


 

Wings Wrap

Diana Wings Wrap has kimono sleeves, a removable satin belt and is made from the cosiest, softest velour. It comes in one size, making it the perfect present. And even better, we’re offering complimentary monogramming option on the sleeve.

Shop Diana Wings Wrap in classic black here.

New in: Pille Lace Top

Pille Top

We’re excited to introduce the newest member to our lace family – Pille Top. Made from beautiful lace from France, the top has a black velvet collar and an elasticated waist. This season it will come in classic black and gorgeous rose pink.


 

Pille Top

The black version has short puff sleeves. But it is the velvet peter pan collar that makes Pille so special. It`s classic and timeless yet trendy and chic. The perfect piece for the upcoming party season!


 

Pille Top

Pille in rose pink comes with long sleeves. The contrast between the stunning pale colour and the black details makes the top really stand out.
Wear it on its own or why not layer it underneath a dress and show off the sleeves and the collar.

Crazy for Green

The whole fashion world seems to be obsessed with the colour green. And we are no exception with our latest collection.
Rich forest green really is everywhere this season!


 

Fashion Trends

Spotted on numerous catwalks as well as becoming a street style trend, this shade of green is elegant, vibrant and sophisticated. It’s an instant eye-catcher and a perfect colour to jazz up the fall wardrobe.


 

Fashion Trends

In our new collection, we have paired the green with bright pink but the shade also works great with more muted pastel tones. Green is surprisingly easy to style and just one piece can elevate the whole look.

How to Wear: Ilona Turtleneck Bra

Turtleneck Bra

Ilona Turtleneck Bra is another very special piece from the freshly launched AW17 collection. It’s the clever details that make this piece so lovable.


 

Turtleneck Bra

You might usually not associate a bra with fall wardrobe, but the turtleneck turns it into a very practical layering piece. The cutouts add a fashionable edge. And the fact Ilona is reversible gives you many many options on how to style it.


 

Turtleneck Bra

Layer it under a dress like Kriss or wear it beneath a simple T-Shirt.
Ilona also looks great paired with a blouse or a cosy jumper.

How to Wear: Sian T-Shirt

Pink T-Shirt

Another highlight of the new collection and a favourite of Kriss’s is the Sian T-Shirt.
The relaxed fit gives the top an instant coolness factor. But it’s the bright pink colour and the glossy shimmer of the fabric that steal the show.


 

Pink T-Shirt

Sian T-shirt is reversible and can be worn with the keyhole and suspender clip detail in the front or at the back. The contrasting black satin edging and the golden clip add just enough of glam.


 

Pink T-Shirt

Wear it as a loungewear set with the matching Laura Shorts or make it part of your everyday wardrobe. Pair the Sian T-Shirt with a high-waisted skirt or keep things easy and rock a pair of skinny jeans with the loose top.

How to Wear: Krista Suspender Top

Krista Turtleneck

We just can’t get enough of the bright new glossy range. One of the highlights of the line is the Krista Turtleneck Suspender Top. It’s the perfect piece to add a bit of spark to your autumn wardrobe. We’ve enlisted the help of Kriss to show you how to style the Krista top.


 

Krista Turtleneck Top

The deep, rich forest green is a colour that will definitely make you look twice. It forms a perfect match with the signature gold medal and the cheeky cutout.

As with most of our tops, Krista is also reversible, meaning you can wear the cutout in the front or at the back.


 

Krista Turtleneck Top

Turtleneck and long sleeves make it ideal for those winter layers.

Let the suspenders show for a fun casual look, pair Krista with a pencil skirt for a more classic office look or dress the top up by rocking some sequins.

It’s that easy to style!
