Behind the Design: Fishnet

Fishnet

Fishnet is definitely the boldest and most fashionable fabrics we’ve worked with over the years. It’s the edgier alternative to the delicate lace pieces we have in our bestselling classics collection.

Fishnet


What drew me to the fabric years ago was how tough yet elegant it looked. It’s a very sexy material but our feminine designs, have given it a fresh and fashionable twist. Made in France, the material is soft to touch and comfortable to wear.

Fishnet


We now have 4 colours of fishnet to choose from in our collections – Black, White, Nude and Navy. Don’t hold back when choosing the colours! It’s absolutely ok to mix the different shades. Having a navy bra and black knickers will immediately spice up your everyday lingerie look.

Mixing the Classics

Lace Lingerie

Now that our lace lingerie selection has beautiful new additions, it’s the perfect time to showcase these bestsellers and give you few ideas on how to mix & match them. The Piret Bralette & Thongs and Silvia Bra & Maike Knickers all come in timeless black, delicate powder pink and rich burgundy making it very easy to combine the different styles and colours.


 

 Here are just some examples on how to mix the pieces:

Seibu Pop-Up

Seibu

This week we opened a pop-up in one of the most prestigious department stores in Tokyo – Seibu – in the vibrant Shibuya area. Our Spring/Summer collection is showcased next to incredible fashion brands like Acne, MSGM, Sonia Rykiel and MM6 Maison Margiela. Giving it a more ready-to-wear look than ever before.

Kriss Soonik Japan


 

This pop-up is also special because we created an exclusive new item especially for Seibu – the Sai Lace Top. Made from our Classic black lace, this top is very much on trend. You can wear it on top of a T-shirt for a casual look or over a blouse in the office. It’s decorated with our tiny signature box bows, making it elegant yet cute.

If you’re in Tokyo, go check out the pop-up at Seibu Shibuya, Hall B, 3rd Floor until the 5th June.

The Playful Pair!

Kriss Soonik

We’ve found the perfect pairing! Katwoman T-Shirts and Susan pieces compliment each other ideally. The mix between the effortlessly cool T-Shirt and the subtly sexy Top make this a very fashionable match.

Susan Lace Top Katwoman T-Shirt


 

The shape of the T-shirt was chosen to be slim so that it can easily be worn underneath the Susan Tops, Gowns and Bodysuits. The peek-a-boo detailing of Susan is perfect for the illustration to shine through.

This is a combo we’ll definitely be rocking for a very long time!

Piret Bra

Piret Bra

The new Piret Bra is here! Available in three lovely colours, this latest style is an absolute must have. With Piret our mission was to create a bra that would fit a larger cup, whilst still keeping the comfort and cool factor of our best-selling signature Silvia triangle bra.

Piret Bra


 

Coming to the result was far from easy though. This bra was years in the making because I was never satisfied with our samples. There was always something not right. It had to look and feel like “Kriss Soonik” but that didn’t occur for a long time.

After countless tests and frustration we finally got the bra we wanted! Made from our Classic French lace, signature wide elastic under bust, wide shoulder straps, edged with velvet trims and decorated with two tiny box bows in the front – it has the everyday comfort factor, sexiness and fit.

The idea was also to extend the Classic range offerings, so Piret got a matching lace thong. Now you can actually mix and match the Piret Bra, Piret Thongs, Silvia Bra and Maike Knickers in whichever way you like.

Kriss Soonik for Journelle

Journelle

When we sat down with the girls from America’s hottest lingerie boutique Journelle last year, the idea of the collaboration came very quickly.

 

Kriss Soonik Journelle Boy Beater


 

We wanted to create something classic with a bit of the unexpected. The result? A fresh take on our bestselling Bridget Body. The exclusive Boy Beater is a super soft ribbed tank with a sinfully lace-covered bum for a little dose of skin, and a bold keyhole in the back to compliment the shoulder blades. Top it with our signature satin bow and voíla! Comfy, chic, and a little naughty. It’s a great go-to transitional piece, perfectly wearable for work or play (with a few costume changes). See below how the ladies from Journelle wear it and read more about the collaboration on their blog.

Behind the Design: Kristel Knickers

Kristel Knickers

Kristel Knickers are another of our signature pieces that have been with us since the very beginning. It’s a product that combines two of our favourite materials from our bestselling ranges – luxurious French lace and supersoft jersey.


 

Kristel Knickers

The collection where the Kristel Knickers first appeared was called “The Warrior”. The year was 2009. The range was dark and sexy in a fresh new way. It was more fashion-forward than pin-up. Not many luxury lingerie designers saw jersey as a potentially glamorous material. But I was on a mission to change that with the Kristel Suspender Top, Kristel Knickers and Bridget Body.


 

Kristel Knickers

Our cute yet cheeky Kristel Knickers are handcrafted in Estonia and made of Italian jersey and French lace. They can be worn under a pair of jeans or as sleepwear. The cut is flattering and reveals exactly as much as needed…

City Guide: Tokyo

Tokyo

My semi-annual trips to Tokyo is what keeps my inspiration juices flowing. The energy I get from this city is like no other. Here are some of the places I managed to visit on my last busy trip.


 

SHOPPING

I always visit the golden triangle – Shibuya, Harajuku, Shinjuku – for all my craziest fashion needs and just to get a general feel of the current state of trends. I already get inspired by the vibrancy of the street style. There are many places we sell our collections in these areas, including two of the best department stores Seibu Shibuya and Isetan Shinjuku, so it´s always mixing work with pleasure.

KOENJI

Every time I’m in Tokyo, I try to find new places. Koenji, just a stop from Shinjuku, is probably the coolest neighbourhood in Tokyo at the moment. It’s home to an expanding creative scene. You can shop for vintage clothes and vinyl records, go to live music bars and just generally walk around and get immersed in culture and creativity on every step.

SAKURA

This was my fourth time in Tokyo during Spring. I had seen cherry blossoms before but I had never been in Tokyo during the peak blossoming season. Now I know what the hype is about! My greatest experience to view the cherry blossoms was in Tokyo Midtown. It´s especially powerful to look at the fluffy trees from above. It reminded me of seeing first snow of the season.

MIRAIKAN SIENCE MUSEUM

It´s no surprise that I am a huge fan of robots. Visiting Miraikan had been on my to-do list for a long time. Loved seeing Asimo´s demonstration and chatting to tiny robots. Of course until the cute robots called me old…

Caribbean Dreaming Pop-Up

Kriss Soonik

It was my 8th time in Tokyo but this time was extra special – I was finally there during the peak cherry blossoming. And I must say nothing really compares to these fluffy white and pink petals. Apparently Sakura season is bigger than Christmas in Japan. And now I know what the hype is about!

The main reason for my visit to Tokyo this time was our pop-up at Omotesando Hills Rocket at the heart of Tokyo’s most prestigious shopping street Omotesando. This is the legendary street where Gucci, Chanel, Loewe et al. have their flagships.

We had a fabulous opening party. Was so great seeing all my Japanese friends (thank you for my beautiful flowers and gifts!) and also meeting so many new faces. The pop-up’s theme was “Caribbean Dreaming” after our SS17 campaign. Guests were posing with our campaign stars dolphin and flamingo while sipping Litchi Blue cocktails. We had loads of fun as you can see from the gallery below.

Until next time Tokyo!


 

 

Katwomen T-Shirts

Katwomen T-Shirt

Last summer we brought our cat logo alive with the very talented illustrator Kati Stimmer. We called her Kat. She is a glamorous creature – sassy, independent and courageous. She doesn’t care what others think about her because she just really enjoys being herself.

T-Shirt


 

My name is always written with a C whenever I go, so it wasn’t really hard to come up with her name. But that was also the moment when the idea for the Katwomen Alphabet occurred. Letters combined with our beautiful creature on cool T-shirts? I was sold. It had been a long-time dream of mine to include a range of T-shirts into our collections.

Katwomen Alphabet


 

The supersoft organic cotton T-Shirt comes with 21 different letters making it easy to find your initial. Rock it with a pair of jeans or wear it underneath our Susan Tops or Bodies. The peek-a-boo detailing is perfect to show off your letter.
