Caribbean Dreaming

Caribbean Dreaming

Our SS17 campaign “Caribbean Dreaming” is all about the small joys in life.

My grandmother Maie became the unexpected style muse for the shoot. I remember her always being very glamorous. Even when she was sunbathing in the garden of our Summer cottage, she had a proper hairdo and purple lipstick on. It was the time when Estonia was still part of the Soviet Union and travelling abroad was impossible. You couldn´t just buy a ticket and fly to the Caribbean for a holiday, so you had no choice but to make the most of your backyard sunbathing sessions.

The modern reason for not being able to fly to the Caribbean is lack of time. Our busy lifestyles became the inspiration for our SS17 photoshoot. When you just don´t have the time for a vacation, you can always create your own sunshine. Take time off in small portions and enjoy these fun little moments in life. We always want more but sometimes we just have to make the most of what we already have!

Spring Inspiration

Moodboard

Now that our brand new spring-summer collection is up and available on our website, it’s the perfect time to talk about the inspiration behind it. This season the collection consists of smaller ranges that were all inspired by different travels and places.


 

Glossy Jersey

It’s all about the stunning glossy fabric and clever little details with this range. The cuts might be sporty but the shiny jersey adds just the right amount of glamour. The nude & navy colours represent the sand and the sea – the essentials of summer and that holiday feeling.

Curacao

The beautiful blue is inspired by Kriss’s travels to Mexico last year, especially by the small resort village of Tulum, where she saw this shade mixed in the most unexpected combinations. One of the most memorable being with bright pink in the lively Carribean architecture.

Velvet Dot

Parisian Chic! The Velvet Dot range has that certain je ne sais quoi about it. The beautiful mesh fabric is cool yet classy, it both covers and shows off. The dots are made of velvet that are really soft to touch. The simple, elegant shapes complement the playfulness of the dots resulting in a tres chic ensemble.

Welcome Spring!

New year, new pieces!
We’re excited to present our latest spring jersey range. It’s a perfect mix of sporty and glam, laid-back and elegant.

It all started with the beautiful glossy rib fabric. It was love at first sight for Kriss who spotted it at a textiles trade fair. The range was designed there and then. The fabric from Portugal is lightweight, super soft and has the most beautiful subtle shimmer to it. Making it perfect for both lingerie and lounge pieces.

ILONA BRA

The star product is the brand new Ilona Bra which you can’t help but show off. The athletic cut is complimented by a cutout at the back and our signature suspender clip detail in the front. Wear the bra with a low V-neck or an unbuttoned blouse.

HEART GOWN

We’ve also updated our signature gown, which this time comes with a heart shape on the back. French lace pockets add a touch of glamour. Satin belt allows you to play around with the fit.

Japan Christmas Campaign

On my trip to Tokyo in October we shot the first ever Christmas campaign especially for Japan. What made it extra fun for me was that the entire team was Japanese. The talented photographer Sayo Nagase, stylist Nina Utashiro who also happens to work as the fashion editor of I-D Japan magazine, Sachiko Omori the hair wizard of Tokyo, and our beautiful model Yuka Mizuhara who amongst others has graced the cover of Nylon Japan. Here´s the final result! Plus a few exclusive behind the scenes shots from the day.

Enjoy!

What inspired you to open a lingerie boutique?

I got inspired when I visited London and enjoyed sexy concept shops during the trips. It was a shame that 4 years ago there was not one nice and naughty boutique in Tallinn where to go and buy sexy things. Since 2011 there is Ulakas Kaunitar and much more happy women in Estonia.

What´s your customers´ favourite piece from the Kriss Soonik collections? Why?

Our customers love Wings wraps and tops. Angel wings are just fabulous!

New Stockist Alert! Risqué Boutique in Zurich.

This autumn we welcomed a brand new boutique to our stockist family – Risqué Boutique in Zurich. We caught up with the owner and manager of the store Olena Maslova for a quick chat about her store and Zurich in general.

Tell us a little bit about your boutique.
Risqué is located in the area of the main shopping street Bahnhofstrasse, next to such stores as Kiton, Trois Pommes, Bally and Christian Dior.
My idea was to create something special in Zurich by introducing the brands that are new to the Swiss market and are unique in their design and quality. I wanted the store to look luxurious and intimate for our customers to feel comfortable there. We have a great range of brands allowing every woman to find the style that she finds attractive and identifies with. In addition to Kriss Soonik we stock Atelier Bordelle, Fleur of England, Edge o’ Beyond, Lascivious, Fraulein Kink, 210th and L’Agent by Agent Provocateur.

What inspired you to open a lingerie boutique?
I have always been fascinated by lingerie and the detail of work involved. I think lingerie is something so personal and intimate and it can tell a lot about a person. It’s the first thing that a woman puts on every day and it is what makes her feel confident and sexy. The challenge was to pick out the brands that are appealing to every taste.

Why do you think Risqué customers like Kriss Soonik?
Our customers value quality, comfort and of course the special design the most, so I believe that is why Kriss Soonik is becoming very popular. The concept of loungerie is something new and creates a lot of excitement around the brand. The feedback that we’ve had so far is that the clients love how comfortable, playful and unique the brand is.

risque-4

Could you give us an insider tip to Zurich?
If you’re interested in shopping then Bahnhofstrasse is definitely the number one destination. My personal favourite is the luxury label Trois Pommes which is owned by Swiss trendsetter Trudie Goetz.
You’ll find a lot of charming boutiques at Weinplatz. My other favourite destination to shop is Salvatore Schito, which is one of the most stylish places in Zurich that will always keep you updated on the newest trends. Their collection is quite extravagant and offers many unique accessories.
